since the HDD is essentially "married" to the PS3 it was in (meaning it will only work with that specific console unless the drive were to be formatted on another system), backing it up is out of the question UNLESS you can get your broken PS3 fixed. Laptops might recognize the drive, but it won't be able to access it because the file system is proprietary (meaning its specific to the PS3).

Sorry we won't be able to help ya there Confused

dont be surprised if it doesn't work because the hard drive is married to the other motherboard

Not to mention that OS in installed on the PS3's motherboard and not the HDD.  Thats how you upgrade the HDD in the first place.

Get a USB Flash Drive and copy saves then paste it on there then put it in to the new ps3 and open it from there and copy it back on.
