Reading PS3 HDD in Windows
Reading PS3 HDD in Windows –
I have my original 60GB HDD out and connected via usb enclosure to my windows 7 PC, ofcourse it doesn't recognize it yet.
However I remember reading something that there was a tool or something released recently that let you read your ps3 hdd in your pc.
Anybody could help me out with that?
I've been waiting days for help with this same problem. In my research it seems that unless you can compile code, we will have to wait for a dev to release a proper app. As the only thing released so far is source code.
p.s. You also need your console specific keys,witch you can get through multiman
my ps3 is fully functional, I have another hdd in there, and have access to multiman, just need to get my saves off this hdd
hammer13 is right on the money. A proof of concept to decrypt the hard drive exists, but there is no compiled version.
Your best bet is to put your drive back into your PS3, and FTP the contents to your PC. When you replace the drive with you new one, you can FTP the files back.
would this still work if i changed the firmware on the ps3?

If you have a NAND console, then you don't have to. Otherwise you may have to go back to 3.55 to put in your old drive. You will have to do some looking around to see if your PS3 is NAND. With it having a 60GB hard drive, it may well be.
yep mines is definitely nand. I was one of the guys camping out for a week during launch and got a few ps3's that day, it was quite an experience.
You should be fine. Just a month or so ago, it upgraded my 60GB FAT with a 1TB drive. It never asked me to reinstall the firmware.
