Can I replace a PS3's hard drive with one not backed up?
I had a "Fat" PS3 with a 20GB hard drive that I replaced with a 500GB drive. That system broke and I now have a new (refurbished) "Fat" system with a 20GB drive. Since the old system is broken, I cannot back up my data on the 500GB drive, so when I put it in the new system it says it needs to be formatted. Is there any way that I can use my data on the new system?
Is this a good question?
