    Just bought a new HDD

    I just bought a new HDD as my original one went tits up a couple of weeks ago. My question is - will I have to update the console by downloading the latest update from the main PS3 website and install it via a usb stick?

    Thanks.

    Yes you do, but it shouldn't take long especially if the new hdd has a bit more rpm power behind it but not too much or your ps3 would overheat faster

    I have no idea, I think you have to do it on the usb like they were talking about.

    If you upgrade your HDD you have to do something with a USB?

    Um.. what's this USB thing you speak of?

    What I did when I changed my hard drive was just replace it (after saving all the files of course)
    Then the PS3 will update itself(if it needs to) as usual (wired/wireless connection) since updates are mandatory

    No. You DO NOT NEED to update your PS3 when installing a new harddrive.

    No clue why everyone else is saying you do, Because the update information is stored on the PS3 console itself, Not the harddrive.

    I did mine about 3 years ag, back then I needed to download the update from the website and install by usb. I hope it has changed because it was so dumb since it is hooked up to the internet...

    sometimes it does tell you to install the latest firmware update via a USB stick, before it'll let you do anything, no idea why, you're always best to keep the latest update on a flash drive anyway in case of such problems.
