    Hello
    I want to make backups of some of my PS3 games.
    I have software to clone the games, but it can't read the disc.
    Is there Software to read PS3 disc's on a PC?
    What are they called?

    thanks

    The PC DVD drive isn't able to read the Blu-ray discs.

    You have a BD drive? Honestly you'd probably be better off FTPing the disk from the PS3 to your computer.

    you can get 3k3y ripper and connect a ps3 drive to the 3k3y ripper.

    3k3y ripper is your friend. though you'd need to sacrifice a ps3 drive to use it.

    A blu-ray wouldn't still be able to read PS3 discs right?

    It can read them but not play them. Just like how a dvd drive can read an xbox/xbox 360 disc but not play it.

    well i guess it would, ps1 games were cds, we can rip on computers, ps2 was dvd, we can rip on computers, ps3 is bluray, i assume we can rip on computers.
    wii and gc had a weird type of dvd and only some special dvd drives could read them.

    Doesn't 360 ripping still require specific supported drives?

    OP, I stand by my original suggestion of FTP the disc which will completely alleviate the issues of drive compatibility and encryption.

    no problem just be careful to give advice unless you are certain :)
    saying 'i think...' is better :)

    They are getting scratched so better backup

    Yes, they are old but they are top class games.

    ...old? What are you... oh goodness. It came out 10 years ago.
    I don't even want to check how old my childhood games are now...

    The Lite-On DH-401S can read PS3 discs. AFAIK it's the only drive that is able to do that.

    I would guess they are almost as old as you are.
