Just backup the old using the menu utility and then swap out the drive and restore the backup.

My ones a bit quieter. I rate WD drives as one of the best. Used this drive many a time to upgrade peoples PS3... highly recommended........ although if i had the choice right now id go for a 500GB for around the £60 mark ;-)

just be careful because any drive over 250gb will be sata 2, the ps3 only reads sata 1 although sata 2 are backwards compatible there may be problems in the future.

One example i have with mine is that bbci player stutters every tens seconds
