Grumpy Gurevitz: Hard Times With My Hard Drive

Grumpy Gurevitz Writes: So, the other day I decided that I needed a new, larger, hard drive for my PS3; and seeing that the price of 500gb drives had fallen to a point where it was a 'no brainer' I went and purchased one from my local PC World.

The staff are on a par with those that work for Comet, and as one of my close friends puts it, people who work at Comet are those that couldn't get work at Currys, and that's not saying much.

Buy a proper screwdriver before trying to swap hard drives again. Jeez, don't you read the how-to articles before trying this stuff?

You just have to use the right screwdriver for each job. You need two Phillips screwdrivers (and one Torx for the security screw) and you can totally take apart a PS3 in less than 10 minutes. Sure enough, if you're trying to do that with one single cheap screwdriver that has been used too many time already, you're "screwed" : )
