    multiMAN creator deank has released an application, that will enable you to play your PS3 Backups via DVD or Blu Ray, this is done by installing a PKG onto your PS3, inserting the backup and selecting the game icon, here is a quote from the thread:

    Not sure how much I'll use this, as BD-disks and burner are expensive, but interesting.

    Deank mentioned that he burnt this game with DVD-RW and it works fine. :)

    Yes, but only for games that are under 4GB (or 8GB if you use a dual-layer).
    Most would require a BD-disk.

    This doesn't affect PSN access in any way seeing as nobody on custom firmware can even gain access to the service, this just means you can use disc-based backups instead of a HDD :)

    Probably ripping games is going to become more usual now.

    For computers you can use Filezilla. Works great for me.
    On the ps3 you can use OpenPS3FTP or the one that is built into multiman.

    How exactly do you instal the pkg firmware? Just insert whatever usb drive has it, inside my ps3?
