    What exactly you want to backup - jsut your games from internal hard drive?

    Have you read the instructions regarsd FTP usage in the original FTP thread from CJPC? You need to point your FTP client to the IP address of your PS3 and then you should be able to see all the relevant folders and copy accross the files you need.

    The CJPC FTP thread is here: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-ha...ed-112493.html

    One guide in it is here, but there are several others in the thread so I'd read through it all: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-ha...tml#post306097

    Finally, yes people have used PS3 Ripper... read the thread to see their comments here: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-ha...ed-113317.html

    Just download the swissknife tool (google it) - it will allow you to format large external drives in FAT32.

    After that - you can backup your games directly to that external USB drive connected to your PS3.

    Please note that this guide is for a full backup of internal hard drive in c ase of swaping for the larger one (and not having extra / spare externla drive to store interim backup data). But you can at least download the swiffknife tool from there
