Thanks for the update barrybarryk and +Rep, as usual most will probably just wait until a free solution is available for CFW users I'm sure.

Ok there's been a bit of an update on the cobra usb site: cobra-usb.com

In the download section the user manuals (attached below) have shown up. Some notable bits of info are:

When making a PS3 Game Backup
4. You will be asked if you want the dump in iso or in the standard format. Choose the desired option and wait for the copy to complete. Pros and cons of iso format compared to the standard directory based format:

Pros
Support of backups with files bigger than 4 GB on external drives is possible. Iso files with a size bigger than 4 GB are split in parts.
Less files on hard disk, it can help to reduce fragmentation.

Cons
It is a less standard format for ps3 backups.
It always requires a ps3 disc game inserted.
So it handles games with +4GB files on external by creating one big iso file and splitting that into parts

Regarding blu-ray backups
Warning: although Cobra USB Manager allows original blu-ray movies to be copied, backups won’t work because of AACS copy protection. However, you can transfer these backups to your PC, decrypt them using some tool such as AnyDvd HD, DVDFab, etc, and transfer the decrypted iso back to the PS3.

If you have a blu-ray reader on your computer, you may want to do the full process there instead.
So again it just makes an image of the disc so they'll still need decrypting (Same for DVD movies with CSS protection)

And about PSX support
The first time a psx backup is going to be played, you will be prompted to install psx support. This process overwrites a system text file only used in jailbreak mode, and it only needs to be done once.
So it looks like it actually uses the in-built emulator and instead modifies one of the related files to allow launching it in JB mode (also supports both bin/cue and iso formats)

There's some more stuff in the guide that kind of adds to the validity of their claims but if you're interested you should have a look at the actual user guide. I just want to know what file it modifies to allow psx backups

I don't barryk, I have it in my ps2 but it would be a little inconvenient to reupload the images to my internal sata NTFS on pc and then rerip them to an internal w/e file format the ps3 uses for internal drives... I was thinking something more along the lines of an ide hdd enclosure and the usb 2.0 ports on the ps3... Or maybe network the ps2 to ps3 and load and play games that way.

sounds like a good product, glad i stuck to 3.41 now.. if this will also play ps2 backups then ill buy one,not that ps2 games are much chop these days, outdated, just look at front line remastered... but i have about 100+ ps2 discs sitting there doing nothing.
