When replacing a hard drive in a PS3, the easiest way to transfer your game data from one drive to another is to use a USB Flash drive. If you are only concerned with the save game data, you can plug it in while using the hard drive that has your save files, go to Game on the XMB, then Game Saves, and select the save data you wish to copy. Press triangle and select copy. This method doesn't work for all games though, because some games will "lock" your save data but there is a way around this.

Instead of manually copying your save files, you can backup your data to the flash drive under the Settings on the XMB, then go down to System Settings > Backup Utility. This will try to backup everything on your PS3, so it is best to have manually transferred as many of the other types of files (music, pictures, videos) off the first hard drive as possible. This means more space will be available for Game saves and Game Data. If you aren't too concerned with reinstalling game data on the new drive, i would suggest deleting these from the first hard drive as well, as they take up much more space and make the back-up process take considerably longer.

Once the Backup Utility finishes, you may swap in the new hard drive and restore the data from your flash drive. Restore is in the Backup Utility menu.

Storage disc stop working


It could be a situation where only the "table-of-contents", which describes all the files on the disk, has become scrambled. So, look online for "file recovery" utilities -- programs that will read through all the blocks of data on the disk, and try to "stitch" together all the files, without using the "damaged" file-directory.

I just plugged it in and can't figure out how to save files on it. Please help.


1. check to see if the drive shows in the "my computer" window as a new drive letter or USB drive. If it does then....
2. Click and drag the data to that drive or in the "files" drop down menu click on "save as" then locate the drive in the save as drop down and save your data to that drive.
You will have to have 2 widows up to do so.

Files saved on the maxtor hard drive become read only. I cannot make changes to the files and save it.


The cause of read only files are the files open by other network. To fix this problem copy your files and save it again to your computer. Or you may open the files and save it again in different file name.

Dropped StoreJet 2.5


Drives are very delicate. If it has been dropped, I'd copy everything off and bin it. You could buy a new drive itself and put it in the Transcend case - saves money :-) It sounds like the drive heads would have been damaged by the drop.
