Updating ps3 storage media
Upgrading the Play Station 3 hard drive is a simple process.
In the Sony PS3 manual Sony actually tells you how to do it, but towards the end, they throw in a bunch of protective legal mumbo jumbo saying you may void your warranty.
There is an HDD sticker on the one side, this side should be up.
Therefore, you have to restart from the beginning in case download fails in between.
Secondly, since update cannot run in the background(not even the download) your Play Station can’t be used during this time.
The process of updating is almost identical to that of the Play Station Portable, Play Station Vita, and Play Station 4.
The software may be updated by downloading the update directly on the Play Station 3, downloading it from the user's local Official Play Station website to a PC and using a USB storage device to transfer it to the Play Station 3, or installing the update from game discs containing update data.
