PS3 new hard drive help (restore problem)

#1 Posted by RE_Player1 (7526 posts) -

So I bought a new 500GB drive to swap in my 160GB PS3. I did this process with my other PS3, an old 40GB with a new 160GB drive, and had no problems. This time however I have hit a snag. I backed up all my data and switched out the old drive for the new one and proceeded to do the restore process. Unfortunately, the restore process stopped at 63% and would not budge. I cancelled it and tried again and it looks like it is stuck at 63% yet again. What do I do now? I'm thinking about canceling again, putting in my old hard drive, deleting some game data and creating a new smaller backup and try again. Has anyone run into this type of problem and what did you do to solve it?
