Hey guys, I bought a PS3 slim a coupla days after launch, and have been running into a few issues with it and thought I'd see if ya'll can help.
First of all, I swapped in a 500GB HDD before I even hooked it up to the TV; got the firmware installed and it's working good. I took the 120gb and put it in a USB enclosure, but neither the ps3 nor my PC will recognize it. I realized after the fact it probably needs to be formatted, but how will I do this if nothing will recognize it? Maybe put it back into the ps3, install firmware to get it formatted, and then put back in the enclosure?
Secondly and most annoying, every time I turn my PS3 on it kicks everything else on my network off (and sometimes even fubars the router, to the point where I have to power it off and on to get it to work). While this wouldn't really be an issue, I do enjoy watching stuff off the PC with Tversity. The Ps3 is connected wirelessly, while the pc is connected via ethernet. I'm using a Linksys Wireless G router. Is it maybe a DNS issue? Should I try specifying an IP address for the ps3?
I guess last and least important, is there a way to delete a user account on the ps3? I created one to get on to the Japanese PS store, and realized there's not much on there I really want, and would like to delete it so I don't have to choose the account when I start the PS3 up.
