stupid data transfer

3 replies 162 views Edited Apr 16, 2013

so i bought a 500gb to upgrade my ps3 son with a 160gb inside.

yesterday around 4pm i started to do the transfer utility to an other ps3

and guess what this morning at 7AM it was still at 98% so i continue my chores.

until right now i see the ps3 where i was receiving the "backup" power button was flashin red!

YEAH IT **bleep**ED UP!

HOW IT IS POSSIBLE TO TAKE MORE THAN 18 HOURS WITHOUT COPYING 160Gb.

I COPY 160GB IN 30 MIN IN MY COMPUTER!

I HATE YOU SONY AND YOU AINT GIVED MY FREAKING 10$ ALREADY!

YOU MAKE ME LOOSE MY **bleep** TIME!

I WORTH 40$ an HOURS are you GONNA COMPENSATE ME!

Ouch.  Sounds like you're mad, understandably.

 

Since it is most likely SONY is not reading these forums, I doubt your request for compensation will be heard.

 

If possible, you might want to try a full backup to a USB drive.  That's how I backed up and restored my data when upgrading my hard drive.  No idea why the PS3 to PS3 transfer didn't work, though.  I've never tried it, so maybe someone else will have a suggestion.

omg a reply thanks bro, yeah thats exactly what im doing since the last hour. i formated a 160gb to fat32 and pluged it in the ps3 usb port to do the backup option in system settings.

but guess how many time it show 4 hours and 51 mins 0% completed XDD

its the slowest transfer ever.

 

btw the PS3 i was doing the backup just RED LIGHT OF DEATH. totally wasted. and im not even surprised at all!

if you think about it, 18 hours to copy ~160gb can you imagine how much it make spin the hard drive whitout giving it a break for 18 hours straight?!?

 

hopefully i know how to repair ylod and rlod, i'll repair it in no time. but this **bleep** is NO-FRIENDLY AT ALL!

you need to be a technician to do a freaking backup.

 

anyway enough time wasted, back to work... and thanks for reading

Not sure why the backup is so slow - my 160Gb was definitely not full, but it did take a couple of hours to do the full backup anyway.    Didn't bother me as I only intended to do it once.  Hope it works out for you and sorry about the RLOD - really bad luck.
