I've never done a PS3, but on the xbox 360s you simply moved your HD data to an external HD, then put it back on to w/e hard drive you want. I'd imagine that the PS3 has a similar "copy-paste" function?

Luis, check on Gamespot. they do have excellent instructions. It is not very difficult, may be just a bit cumbersome. "Once you have your upgrade drive, the next step is to back up the data on your current PS3 hard drive to an external storage unit. You can skip this step if you aren't attached to your music, videos, and game saves, but most of us will probably want to save all that information. The PS3 has a built-in software backup utility that can copy the PS3's hard-drive contents to an external storage device, such as a USB thumb drive or a memory stick."
