12gb hard disks do not exist..

Make sure you back up your saved files, just in case something goes wrong during the installation of the new Hard disk.

The specs you should look out for is a 2.5 inch sata with a 5400rpm.

He might have meant a 120GB HDD.

No, he is talking about the "12gb" model which is only available in European territories.

There is a 12Gb PAL SS PS3 listed on the wikipedia page for PS3, I looked at the source of the info and it's FLASH memory, if that's the one they are meaning, it would make sense.

 

The only other PS3  SS are 250gb and 500gb.

 

OP, you should ask about this in the European forums.

Here's a clear answer:

Your PSN Profile, including multiplayer progress, Trophy Count and Leveling is stored on PSN's servers. As long as you use the same e-mail and password, you can still continue from that point.

But not all gaming that has progress is stored on PSN servers. It's be easier for this person to move the data onto another HDD ... which is the real question ... CAN they replace the 12gb FLASH with a larger storage HDD, or not.

The answer is Yes, however he needs to back his stuff up just to be safe.

Once you stick a hard disk in there, the flash memory becomes inaccessible from what I read. So you do need to back up before you slap on an HDD in there.

 

That said, look into the Western Digital Scorpio Black 750GB 7200RPM. (No, the rumor of 7200RPM drives burning out PS3s are false.)
