My PS3 is broken and It will not turn on any more do to blunt trauma and i want to get the info off my hard drive how do i do this can it be done.


If you mean you want to transfer the files from that ps3 to another, all you have to do is remove the harddrives in both units, and swap them. If you want to have the harddrive in the new unit instead of the old one, once you have the old harddrive in the new unit simply use the backup function and backup to an external harddrive. In either case keep the extra drive because ps3 harddrives have a tenancy to die (I'm on my third drive)
Heres a video on how to remove the drive:

Your PS3 may have an error in the harddrive that causes this, I recommend that you buy a new harddrive that is cheap. and copy save data onto it then clear all memory on the original harddrive. It may also be a corrupted save.

Ps3 problems


the hard drive? less than $100. you would have to open your ps3 up and take out the original. then you have to get the new one and put it in place of the original. the ps3 *may* format the drive for you, but you might have to plug the new drive into a computer and format it. probably fat32, but it may be a specialized format. search around on google for details. the hard drive you can pick up off the internet from tiger direct or you can take a look for one at the source or circuit city.
