700°
36w ago - Following up on his previous revision and the utility from nullptr comes PS3 HDD Reader for Windows from 3141card which can now read and copy from both fat and slim PS3 HDD variations.

Download: ps3_hdd_reader_windows.rar

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.

Notes:

1) The App will NOT destroy your PS3′s HDD.
2) Now you can COPY from PS3 Fats too.
3) Avast warning...
