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.

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.
