Put the sata drive in the new ps3, then offload the information onto an external discdrive through the settings menu. it is the back up option. then put the new drive back into the ps3, reconect the external drive, and go to settings, and i beleive it is called something like restore, and you can retreive the saved data from the external drive and put it on the new ps3 drive. hope that helped. please tell me if it did or not.

I need to know how to retrieve my files from an old hard drive on a new laptop or desktop, how & where do i install it, the prongs don't seem to match.


You will need a few items to get data off of your old Hard-Drive.
If you have already removed the old hard-drive you'll need something like this:

to attach to another machine to extract the data.


Your old HDD will act like a external hard-drive and you can retrieve your data that way.


Hope that helps

I was watching a film then my ps3 suddenly shut of with the red light constantly flashing, so i went to turn it back on and and then the yellow light came on and it shut back down with the red light...


You have the infamous YLOD, aka. Yellow Light of Death. This is the number 1 cause of pS3's dying. It is an overheating issue linked to your CPU and GPU (the processor chips) You will need to find a local PS3 repair shop who can repair this. Do not try to attempt repairs seen on the internet yourself as some would suggest.You could make things much worse and render the unit totally unresponsive. The repair process takes about 3 hours.



IT CAN BE FIXED





IS THERE A DISC STUCK INSIDE?



If you have a unit that is not backwards compatible, any non 60g or 80g then you can retrieve your disc.



Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.

When my career completion gets to 9% on need for speed pro street, when i try to load my career it says 'this data is corrupted'. This has happenened twice now at the same point in the career.


try it again but make it past 9% and see what happens. If it stills says that the memory is cor then what you need to do is find out if your ps3 is a 60G if it is then you its the PS3, the 60G is a Defective ps3, Get the 80G it is great, and if its the 180G or 120 then it might be that two since there new and all. If you dont have either one then i would check out all the other saved memory you have and see if anything elts is core. If it is then its the PS3. Hopefuly i have helped!

Connected IDE Drive does not mount on desktop


try other usb port, or other computer and see whether the hdd is detected. If still not, try to go to device manager ( http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000833.htm ), and then assign a drive letter to the hdd. After that, try to access it from Computer, if not able to access it, format it (use quick format) and then use this program to recover your files.
