    I have 2 ps3, 1 was a launch phat version from where I played about 20 games, this ps3 was never modded and unfortunately it died recently

    My other ps3 is a slim one and I bought it used and modded.

    A lot of my saves are on the phat ps3 hard drive and I would like to recover them if possible, I have searched the internet without any luck.

    As this ps3 was never modified, I dont have its Key or anything. Is it impossible to recover its data? with a pc, or with my modified ps3

    thank you

    Hmm that won't be so easy...
    i think the easiest thing you can do is to get It repaired, but just curious why did it die?
