PS3 HELP!

Hi
I have purchased a 320gb Internal hard drive for my ps3 and was wondering what ways there are to backup my original hard drive and copying it to my new hard drive without buying another external hard drive, etc.

Can you backup bit by bit as my USB is only 16gb and my original ps3 har drive is 60gb?:?
Thanks:thumbsup:

No, you need to backup the whole thing at once.

Do you advise anything?:?

If you know someone else with a ps3 you could put you're new drive in their machine and use the Data Transfer Utility in System Settings. I don't know if it will definately work but probably worth a try.

Sonys got its own back up system in the settings it'll tell you if you need more space on your USB.

Wouldn't that erase everything on the other ps3?

Not really because you just put their hard drive back in when the transfer is done.

that's only if you go through the back-up data facility
you can easily copy individual files if you press triangle then copy and chose the destnation :thumbsup:
