Sorry to inform you that you can't copy your data at all unless you get that PS3 fixed first. It is unfortunate, but there isn't any way around that. I suggest you look into Gophermods or Endless Electronics to get your PS3 repaired...

If it is working right now, I suggest you immediately attempt to backup your HDD, because it may permanently break at any time.

If you go with Endless Electronics, it will cost you a minimum of $110 to get a reball repair on your system. This type of repair will make it unlikely that the YLOD will happen to your system again...

Trying to back up your data now will not fry your PS3, the worst that could happen is that it won't be able to complete.

I also think Endless Electronics attemps to backup your data when they start the repair process, you should contact them to find out for sure....

I successfully repaired my ylod with the oven method. I also made my own thermal compound with teflon paste, copper shavings,and graphite. Better than what you can buy.
