My brother updated his 40GB UK PS3 today with 2.40. But the PS3 no longer loads fully. The logo loads and the waves loads, but nothing else. The sixaxis refuses to even register with the PS3.
Guessing he's screwed?
What about if I bought a 2.5" HDD USB enclosure? Could I access the HDD and transfer save games, etc? Then format and pop it back in? What format does the HDD need to be in? What file structure do different users and save games go in, etc?
(And side note, with this HDD Enclosure, could I access files from an old laptop I haven't used in about 20 months? The laptop is f'd and won't turn on. I have my leaver's ball pictures on there and would love to get them back! I don't know what the life span of data on an old hard drive is - laptop's motherboard died, that's why it's dead)
