So my old 60 gb PS3 took a nice big dump on me last night while I was watching a movie and it refused to restart and or work at all. my guess is it failed. unfortunately when it crashed apparently because it didn't shut down right the file system on the hard drive got borked. I was able to recover about 15gb of data off the drive using easeus data recovery wizard pro and that data contains .gz and .mpg file which accounts for everything I was able to recover off the drive. I purchased another 60 gb ps3 so I could still play my ps2 and ps games but I doubt I left any save files on my memory cards. I'm trying to recover the data back onto my new ps3 but my old console was bricked and since the hard drive lost its mbr I did the very best I could I have a backup of the backup of the data and was wondering if anyone could tell me how in the heck can I get the new ps3 to recognize this data? I don't have access to a thumb drive bigger then an 8gb and the best storage options I have are the old hd with a fresh reformat to fat32 or a old western digital 40gb sata hd that I reformatted to fat32. one is meant for a desktop and the other is out of the old borked ps3 and is the laptop style which means it wont require an external power source and a simple usb drive enclosure would be enough to power it. any ideas or did I just loose ALL my old ps ps2 data
