    Hi,

    Can I swap my internal hard drive into another ps3 without reformatting it?

    Cheers

    Is it between two fats or two slims or between a fat and a slim? If its between a Fat and a Slim then its not possible as they have different formats and won't boot at all.

    Might also have to be the same firmware on each as part is stored/loaded from the hard drive.

    But don't quote me on that! Only my theory.

    Nope - NOT possible at all independent of model / type of PS3. Hard drive's content is encrypted to the particular PS3 and can not be used in any other PS3.
