I got a big problem.
I just got a new harddrive for my notebook so I want to use the old hdd in my PS3. It's a Samsung HM160JI (160GB). So first of all i backed up my PS3-data and formated the Samsung. After that i removed to original PS3-HDD and installed the Samsung. Turned on the PS3 but it couldn't find the drive and told me that there's no system software to find.
After that I formated the whole hdd in FAT32 and tried again. No changes to above. Then I downloaded the newest firmware (which I already used before on the original HDD) and up it on the Samsung in "PS3\Update" but the PS3 couldn't find the firmware.
After that I formated my usb stick with FAT16 and copied the folder with the firmware on it.
Now the PS3 found the file and started formating. After this is rebooted again but then told me that there would be no system software available.
Can anybody tell me how I can get that piece of shi* working together with the PS3?
