To cut a long story short. Just got a new PS3 and getting rid of our old YLOD PS3 on ebay obviously mentioning fault. However my worry is that photos etc are on the old HDD. A HUKDer gave me loads of great advise and told me to put the old HDD into the new machine before i do anything else and format it (whatever that really means) i am sure i can follow instructions so no problem. The idea being the old HDD will then be cleared of all our old info photos etc.
This sounds great but when i put the new HDD back into the new PS3 will it be just like i had taken it out of the box or will what i have done with the old HDD cause me problems with the new PS3 being a complete illiterate non techie.
Thanks in advance.
Reading this back I sound like a complete fool. I promise i am a reasonably smart female. LOL The reason i am sorting it out is because the other half is worse than me but unlike me cant be bothered to even learn. (Dont blame him really)
