Yes, you can retrieve anything saved to the cloud once you transfer everything to the new PS3.

Simpler and cheaper way would be to use a flash drive you can buy at any electronics store for maybe $5 or less.

Lil_Guard_Dog is right you just have to re-enter your psn and password anytime you change PS3's.  Either PS+ or a flash drive will work

If it ain't broke, I haven't fixed it yet.

once you put the flash drive in the usb it will pop up as an option....it wont show it when you back it up unless you have the flash drive plugged in

Doublecheck these steps. Just in case.

Gamesave Restore Instructions

    Here is the correct process with USB Drive already inserted in PS3:

    1) Receive anything that you have been gifted

    2) Immediately hit Save button on left side of My Page screen

    3) Quit Gran Turismo 5 by pressing PS3 button and selecting Quit Game

    4) Then it says “Do you want to quit the game?” , select “Yes”

    5) Toggle up to Saved Data Utility

    6) Press X and then move to your Gran Turismo 5 Game Save until it is selected

    7) Press Triangle and select Copy (pressing X button)

    8) (By default, it will always select Online Storage for you), Toggle down to USB Drive and press X

    9) It says" There is saved data with the same name at the save destination. Do you want to overwrite it?" Select Yes and press X. (Shows PS3 > Save Destination: USB Device)

    10) It will save your Game Save to the USB Drive, you now have a backup with your new car / Ticket/ and or any items that you just received.

    If you wish to send something to someone else, first make sure your Gamesave is backed up using the method above

    1) Enter Gran Turismo 5, select GT Mode, and proceed to "My Page"

    2) Select the car or Ticket ( You cannot be in the car if you wish to send it)

    3) Press Triangle and select Give to Friend

    4) Select Friend from list and Press OK with X

    5) Car or Ticket now is gone, Press PS button and select Quit Game, press X

    6) Do you want to Quit Game?,  Select ”Yes” press X

    7) Toggle up to Saved Data Utility and press X

    8) **Be extremely careful here**, this time toggle up to your USB drive and press X

    9) Select your Gran Turismo 5 gamesave and press Triangle

    10) Select Copy and press X

    11) Says: There is saved data with the same name at the save destination. Do you want to 

overwrite it? Select “Yes” and press X ( Shows: USB Device > Save Destination: PS3)

   

    12) Says: If you overwrite it, the saved data stored on “PS3” will be lost. Are you sure you want to overwrite the saved data? Select “Yes” and press X

    13) Success!!! You have restored your gamesave and your car/ Ticket/ or items that you just sent are restored.

    I understand fully that many of you are very knowledgeable about Gran Turismo 5. I wrote these instructions step by step, so I can give them to anyone who may wish to send cars/ Tickets/ Paints/ Gear and still keep their copy. I know that you likely do not need such detailed instructions, but all info is valuable as a reference in my opinion. Regards, SWERV

Maybe you have already done all these steps. If so, I have no other solutions for you. Regards, SWERV

The plus account will do what you want, but!

If your old ps3 wont stay on long enough to do the transfer your still out of luck.

The plus account is great for this very type of thing, Ive twice NOT lost all my saves because of it.

I see two possible problems here:

1. - There is something wrong with your flashdrive. Not formatted correctly, incorrect folder structure, etc. or just plain defective. But this doesn't seem to be your problem, since you don't have an issue with other save files.

or

2. - Your "old fat bricked ps3" bricked back before PD unlocked the gamesaves via a game update (can't remember ver # that unlocked the save files)

Have you kept GT5 updated to the latest version?
