okay, so my PS3 no longer reads disks....**** well I call sony and they say that I can send it in for a new ps3. The operator also told me to back up my ps3 data using a usb cord so I would have all of my save files and such. My question is, can I back up that data on a MAC HD using the USB cord or does it have to be specifically on a PC?

Strange.. What firmware were you running? My PS3 on 2.36 stopped reading discs today so I rang up and there was a huge queue. Anyway, the files will be right for the PS3 no matter what you store them on. As you know, you can store a file (that the computer won't be able to use) on a hard drive. As long as you copy it back into the right part, you should be fine.

thanks for your help. I just updated to 2.36 and now it won't read my games. I keep calling and asking different people and they just say "did you update your ps3??" so I do not know what the problem is.

Well, mine was reading discs fine, then it kinda started freezing in game. An hour or two later it froze again, I rebooted the console and BAM. No discs were coming up. I'm not sure if it relates to 2.36 but when my refurb comes, I'm not upgrading until 2.4 comes out.

Same. My MGS4 began to freeze and I was like WTF?! It's a new disk! Then my games just did not show up on the XMB

Its weird, I'm not sure that a firmware can cause that though. Surely a firmware problem wouldn't need a hardware repair.
