I bought a PS3 a while ago and I got the red screen of death, I suppose that's a proper name for it, and I returned it to Gamestop for a new one. My question is how do I load my old account into this new PS3, with my trophies? I know I lost the save data, but did I really lose all that other stuff too? Or is it like the 360, where I can recover my GT? I already looked, and could not find anything. Help me pleaseee :)

Your user account is lost because I beleave that was saved to your original PS3's hardrive.

Wow, now that's new. Anyway for your question just press PS button create a new user and when you're go to the icon to make a new account, and just put your previous info and that should do the trick.

I bought it in Feb or March. It's the 80GB. It could be because I moved to Germany and it wasn't plugged into a transformer, however it was fine for a few months so maybe not.

I was playing Modern Warfare 2 yesterday and the ps3 was fine, today my bro played mw2 and after him I wanted to play. So I plugged in the cords right and turned it on. I then clicked on Modern Warfare 2 to start playing but it was just a black screen nothing happened. I also tried Black Ops and all of the God of Wars still nothing. So my bro had to delete my file and he placed his on a flash drive but there wasn't enough room for my file. Can someone either give me tips on how to get my ps3 to read disks or give me tips on how to get my old file back because I had a lot of things that took me forever to get on games?
