    I don't see why it would not work. I thought about doing that, but then I realized my TV has USB ports with the ability to play movies. Does your tv have this?

    If you plug it in to your ps3, just make sure everything is backed up somewhere (even if it is on your computer) and plug it in, see what happens. If it erases, then just transfer everything over to the hard drive again from your computer.
    If it works, i would say to turn off your ps3 before unplugging the hard drive.
