Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Transferring info console to console

I just sent in a request that ended in being told that I might need to take my system back and get a new one. My question is this, as I'm sure you know there are some games that you can't copy onto a memory stick, is there some way of doing it so that I don't have to start all aver again? I have several games that don't allow you to copy them to disk or stick or whatever.

Appreciate the help, but I was wanting to copy the game data I have saved on my PS3 onto a memory stick but it won't let me. It says the function isn't allowed or something like that. Since I am going to exchange my PS3 for another one, I was wondering if there is a way of copying my game data that I've saved for these games that won't let you copy saved data. Example, you can't copy Need for Speed Pro Street onto memory stick. Godfather either.

Yes , these type of games are known as copyrighted games which dont allow you change , copy , edit thier original location.
there are two ways in which you can copy them mto a memory stick....
Either try to download the game to memory stick directly without installing it on ur PC or
Second way is to check whether the game is in a read only mode or not
There are illegal ways to copy them to memory stick...
There are hacking softwares available on net thru which you can by pass the copyright that is applied on the game . but....... not recomemnnded at all. ( Not recommended )

My Playstation 3 is only reading my games when it wants. Can anyone tell me why it will read my dvd's but not the games? Thank you


I had the same issue with my system, and had to sent it in for repair. They told me the blue ray disk drive was failing. It cost me $105.00 for the repairs. But when I got my system back from Sony, it was like brand new with all new parts.

Playstation ps3 has no sound


You might need a new audio port. I sent my XBox to VideoGame911.com and they repaired my issue as well as my other system, for a great price and i got it back at the end of the week. Also, they give you a warranty if you were to have any more issues.

I can't tell you what it really means because i am no expert but i have saw a lot of people with the same problem and when they called the support they told them to unplug everything and plug it back afterwards. If it doesn't work, wich it probably won't, you have to either sent it back for repair or buy a new one ... sorry.

PS3 80 Need to delete all on hardrive. PS3 40 Desire to transfer all gaming information to the PS3 80 after hardrive is clear. Then after transferring my info from PS3 40 to PS3 80 I'd like to delete/clear...


The best and really only way to transfer games from one ps3 to another is to get a portable thumb (usb) drive and save the games to it. Next save the games on the new ps3.

To wipe your account info from the other ps3, all you need to do is delete the user. You don't have to worry about personal information because that is not stored on the console. The information is all stored online.

If this helps, please rate me...thanks

Desire to transfer all game information from PS3 40 to PS3 80. PS3 80 has information on hardrive that I would like to delete first so I can set up with new I.D. etc. from PS3 40. Then after the PS3 40...


Go to Settings, System Settings, Back Up Utility.

You'll have to hook up an external usb drive with a good amount of space.

Use the backup utility.

Swap the 40gb drive with the 80gb drive.

Follow the onscreen PS3 prompts. A message will possibly pop telling you that you need to download a firmware file etc. If it does download the latest PS3 firmware from here:

http://www.us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3

You'll need to have it installed on a folder on your external drive like this:

PS3-->UPDATE-->firmware file

The playstation will look for the file once you press the SELECT and START buttons at the same time on your ps3 controller.

Follow the prompts, it should be straightforward.

After everything is done.

Go back into Settings, System Settings, Back Up Utility.

Click Restore and then follow the prompts.

Boom you're back in business.

your Wiii console needs to be sent back to Nintendo for repair. They told me that there were a 'batch' of consoles sold around Christmas 2007 that will exhibit this error and need to be returned. The error comes up when you try to test your wifi connection.
