    ps3 hdd are LINKED the ps3 it was formated on, you can't switch them without formating

    use the Back-up option in the setting menu (there are somethings that will NOT be backed-up like copy protected saves)

    on if you want to have 3.55 OFW, on the 3.55 ps3, have the 3.55 OFW update on a usb drive, when you install the new drive
