I will definitely not make this mistake again with my new one. I mean yeah I could back up my saves to the cloud but I'm still going to "lose" everything else. I need to remind myself of everything I have downloaded and paid for.

Those should be accessible under your account's purchase history. You can simply redownload by going down the list.

" Pressing the eject button when there is no disc in the drive- The PS3 will beep 3 times to warn you that there is nothing in there. Usually this isn't a serious problem."

unless of course there WAS a disc in there and it has been eaten by an ever growing black hole? I suppose then it would be a really serious problem

McAwesome is correct, everything that you downloaded will be in your account history on Playstation Network

Mogwai as far as selling it goes. Personally, I would not remove the hard drive because you will get less out of it. The best thing to do is to create a new user account on your drive that does not have any information in it, and then delete the account that you normally used. It takes like two minutes to do this. You don't even have to link it to PS3 online. You just have to create a generic account on the machine. Once you delete your main account, they will not be able to access anything from your Playstation account. The main thing that you would have to worry about is clearing off any music, personal pictures, or videos that you might have on the system because they are accessible from all accounts. Also if you take out the hard drive if someone paid you 50 for the broke system and then had to buy a hard drive, this would put their price at 100 without having the light problem fixed. It just would not be worth buying it without the hard drive. Also if you wanted to, you could always go to settings and select restore to factory settings before you sold it. This also keeps them from being able to access the information.

After saying all of this if you would like to sell it with the hard drive included, then I would be willing to pay 50. Without it, it would be hard from me to put over 25 in to it.

There are cheaper places gamerdoc does this for less about 86 $ for my heatsink problem. Look on the net you may find a place near you and cheaper

It's a moot point James because I don't think I would sell it but it's a 500gb HD that I installed. I would probably put it in the new one that I buy and I didn't save the old 80gb that it came with.

@N.Gay - I haven't heard good things about the life expectancy of a fat model that was fixed in some way. It's definitely not about the cost of fixing it.

Not sure how much it affects purchased content but the videos that came as part of the UE of GoW3 are not in my download history. Only one of them is available to purchase too. I dread if it ever comes to this. I backup regularly to an exteranal HDD. I have plus but haven't messed with the cloud saving yet. Does it save to both the console and the cloud? If I copy what is on my console now to the cloud and change the save settings by pressing triangle at the menu will it do that from now on? 150MB doesn't seem like a whole lot and I have a lot of games. Haven't quite seen perfection out of the cloud saving on the 360 either. I guess in a perfect world you would have both physical and cloud based saving of everything.

mine has lasted 10 months, but i did get an external fan that helped. As far as the new HD you will need to update the OS to whatever was on the old HD for your new slim (on your PC you can get a external HDD case for under $20 for transferring to your new PS3) and then just plug it in, and it should work fine. Plus save your game saves periodically.

Yeah in terms of the old HD I don't even know what I would do with it. I'm going to get the 320gb slim and then I guess if I ever run out of room, which I won't, I would just upgrade it to the 500gb.
