Best Answer

The harddrive is the size of a standard notebook harddrive not a PC size harddrive. So you can not fit it in the smaller spot required for the notebook size harddrive

I have loads of films on my 250gb ps3 hard drive and am about to upgrade to a 500gb disk how can I transfer the films easily without having to use a usb stick?

I don't think this is possible. I don't think PS3 has the ability to copy over the network to a PC. However, you could always connect the PS3 hard drive that you swap out to your computer or laptop. That way it would almost be like having an extra hard drive in your computer with all your movies on it.

How do you use PS3 without a PC?

A PC is not involved in the use of the PS3. I don't even know how you would use the PC with a PS3. I have both and they are both connected to the internet. If you are asking how do you use a PS3 without internet and using the word PC for the internet it does not require the internet to use the PS3 it just gives the PS3 the ability to do more and to make sure the PS3 and the games have updates. Of course without the internet you can only play offline
