Default Well, It's finally happened to me

My launch day 60 gig has just become a red led blinking, 12 lb brick. What's worse is that it has become a red led blinking, 12 lb brick that has swallowed my Grand Tourismo 5 prologue disk. And on Christmas morning of all things.

I plan to send it out but I have a couple a question. I plan on shopping for a new PS tomorrow to help ease the pain while the other one is being repaired. Can I remove the HD from the old one, stick it in the new one and use it? If I can't, it's not really a problem. Just save games and games that I can redownload off of the network but it would be nice to be able to use the old HD.

You should be able to use your old HDD. I've heard of other people doing it.

Sorry to hear your PS3 died.

IIRC the HDD is tied to the PS3. You'll have to format when you put it another PS3.

Oops. Forgot about this thread. Got a new 80 gig the day after and quite enjoying it at the moment. It's been on 24/7 and I can hardly tell that it's on. Not really missing the HD. Anything I downloaded I can DL again. Just sucks that I'll have to redo all my games. The only thing I really miss is the flash card ports and my GT disk. Figure sometime next week I'll give Sony the call. When I get it back, plan on making it a permanent folder.
