A while ago I bought a PS3 super slim 12Gb, and I intended to put a 120Gb SSD (a Samsung 840 EVO) inside it. I purchased the mounting bracket etc and as all the guides I read said just slapped it in and then waited for all the files to copy over, or so I thought! In reality my PS3 died, no sign of life other that a light, nothing on the screen, no loading noises not even a fan.
So where did I go wrong? It's the first time I've ever done this and all I've read and watched are pretty light on the pre installation details.
Do I need to format to FAT32 first and partition the drive? Is there a step I've missed, or will the drive simply remain a console killer for life and need putting away?
