I just updated my 60GB hard drive to a 1TB hard drive, using the XMB and cloud saves to transfer everything.
I know there are random games out there that are "protected saves," and won't transfer over like others. Unforutnately, Heavy Rain is one of them. I beat the game once and was in the process of replaying chapters to find other endings and also bought the Taxidermist DLC hoping to play it with my new HDD.
Searching online, there seems to be a lot of contrasting info on whether or not there's a way to overcome the protected save - some have said yes it can be transferred but has to be on the same PS3 it was originally on (which is my case, but the regular transfer didn't work), some say it has to be an ethernet cable transfer to another PS3 system, and then the save is linked to that system.
Please, is there any way to actually transfer the save? I don't want to start from the beginning again!
