Forgot my password for my ps3 & going to swap HDD
Question for someone who may know. Actually several
Currently: 60gb HDD in PS3. Going to 320
I forgot my xmb password (Any account deletions etc I cannot do or anything else that requires this 4 digit password cause I forgot it) This is a real pain in my butt, so I figured I may as well nip this issue while I'm upgrading HDD. This is NOT the PS Network id's password.
I have Rockband with a lot of progress made.
Plan to: Format and reload (I guess that's what I'll call it) firmware on new HDD so this will wipe the password and account settings, since I know of no way to erase current unknown pass.
Also I will backup saved games and other data to an external usb 2.0 HDD, so I can restore afterwards.
Questions I have are:
1 - Will I be able to restore all saved game progress in Rockband to the new HDD after the new firmware load? I heard a lot of conflicting information around rockband saves and the ability or lack thereof for porting the saved games etc.
2 - Is it as simple as formatting a FAT32 new hdd and putting it in and then choosing to import the saved data (from external usb 2.0 drive, won't be original ps3 60gb of course)? (After firmware upgrade I'll do this)
3 - Any other considerations/potential issues anyone think I should be aware of? I think what makes my upgrade a bit different is the fact I have to wipe and start from default firmware. Now I imagine this will already be done, so I just won't backup any user settings, so not to import them to newly installed drive and firmware)
Any feedback very welcome, and thank you guys/gals
