  1. Try and backup your current ps3 hdd to the external hardrive, then restore the data to the new hdd. This should work.

  2. No. The PS3 has to create a special backup file via the Backup Utility in System Settings. You then have to restore the file once the new HDD is installed.

    The easiest solution is to just format your external hard drive to FAT32 format. Swissknife is a popular choice and can be downloaded for free at http://www.download.cnet.com.
