To quote: Ok, with much help from mind i get it work. A BIG THX to mind for help me debug the prog. The app can now read, and copy from, fat and slim hdd's.
Some words to safety. The app has only read access, self the incredible bug of all bugs, can not lead to a write access. The app can not destroy your ps3-hdd.
Windows knows not about a PS3-hdd, its a unknown format for Windows. That means, if you not initialize the PS3-hdd, AND DO IT NEVER, the ps3-hdd is not existing for windows, no random read or write processes to a device which not exists for the OS.
1) The App will NOT destroy your PS3′s HDD.
2) Now you can COPY from PS3 Fats too.
3) Avast warning about detected "Win32:Evo-Gen [Susp]". False Positive? = It's not infected.
Some information about corrupted ps3 hdd's:
This Tool was writen to work with a intact ps3 hdd, without filesystem errors! My test hdd, a slim hdd, is intact and work perfect.
Some people try out hdd's from ps3's with corrupted ps3 hdd's. For example, you play a game, after the game you are back in XMB and the ps3 say something like "error occurred, must format... ". In this case are some files not correct written, maybe a save or trophy file from the just played game.
This files are simple bad, and not the ps3 or linux or my tool can repair this files magical! The ps3 and even linux mount the ufs2 volume (dev_hdd0 aka gameOS) aktiv. The ps3 will say furthermore "error occurred, must format... ", linux will simply freeze it it come to the corrupted parts.
The ps3 hdd reader mount no aktive volume. He read passive! So he simply not copy the corrupted files. If errors like "error: can't open file ..." occur, than is this not a prob in the app! So be happy that you can recover anything, than otherwise you have nothing.

To quote: A simple on-the-fly decrypter and ufs2 reader as comandline tool for windows. To see the content of your gameos(dev_hdd0) and copy files and folders to PC. No write suport! Hdd will only read.
Put your eid_root_key file in the program folder and connect your ps3_slim_hdd to your PC. Comands are "dir" or "ls" for see a directory, e.g.:
ps3 dir /
to see the root of dev_hdd0, or
ps3 ls /home/0000000X
to see your user folder. To copy a file or folder use "cp" or "copy", e.g.:
ps3 cp /home/0000000X/exdata/act.dat
to copy act.dat to the program folder, or
ps3 copy /home/0000000X/exdata
to copy the whole exdata folder. Its not a profie app, quickly written, maybe you found bugs.
Big THX again to ALL involved! Specially to Graf, Glevand, Naehrwert and Flatz
From aldostools: I made this quick GUI prototype (linked above)... but I didn't feel in the mood of remove my internal PS3 HDD to make tests, so it may be very buggy. If someone could post some captures of the DOS output when the tool is copying a file or a folder, and listing other folders with files would help me to improve it.
ok, I added a progress bar and add an initial slash if it is missing. Also added support for some shorcuts from the address bar:
1-9 -> /home/0000000x/
10-99 -> /home/000000xx/
mm -> /game/BLES80608/USRDIR/
iris -> /game/IMANAGER4/USRDIR/
st -> /game/HTSS00003/USRDIR/
pkg -> /packages/
Any title id in lower case -> /game/TITLEID/
A new Description column is now included (like in my FTP Client).
