Hi. Today I got my blinking red light of death on my original 60gb PS3. I am very sad as I used it for PS2 games as well. If I buy a new Playstation, can I use the hard drive from ther 60gb model? Yes, stupid me, I never saved to SD cards ANY of the saved games I was playing, about 50. I don't care about trophies or anything else but really would likew to try to find a way to read those saved games and transfer that to the new system. Should I have the 60gb (first model released) fixed or what are my options? Thanks for your help. I learned one bad lesson here....BACK-UP!!!!!
I personally would only do this if I was desperate (no money to repair), but put your console in a cardboard box and use a blow hair dryer for a few minutes. If your PS3 turns on after that, then you would back up everything from there. At this point, the PS3 can turn off at anytime, so you would have to be quick about it. After everything has been backed up, go get a reball.
