    I just got this thing and was talking with a friend about it. If I send it to Sony, is there some way to make a backup file of it? I don't want all my saves and information there deleted.. And also, if there's some other way other than Sony, and without getting everything deleted, what is it?

    I'm feeling for ya, man. If you lived in Poland, we have stores that deal specifically with that kind of thing, I don't know if Mexico's like that in any way. You could ask around stores that sell PS3's, maybe they know someone who services PS3's. Still, Sony's the door I'd knock on. Warranty and whatnot.

    Seeing that the saves are stored on the internal HDD, you could backup that, but obviously you'd need to take the console apart.

    I doubt Mexico has any good stores for this, I got Sony only.. Not much mexicans have this problem, I think. Thanks man, I'll go knock Sony's door in a bit, and get some advice.. Thanks again.

    To remove the hard drive you just need to remove a plastic piece on the left side. Then use a phillips screwdriver and it will slide right out

    Depending on the country you live in/store from which you bought the console that does or doesn't void the warranty. Hell, I had a warranty sticker between the main unit and the modem of my Dreamcast, succesfully impeding my progress when de-attaching it from the system even though it's not even screwed to the system and clearly IS de-attachable. (Did it anyways, trololo!)

    So yeah, I'd say it constitutes "taking the console apart", but still, I do recommend it myself. Just wanted to tell you a pointless anecdote.

    Lol, I bought the console back in the US, when it had been recently released. Now 2 more doubts: If I remove the hard drive I can back up my info??

    And by the way, is there a way to get the disc that stayed inside while the console is at YloD?

    1. Yes, by means of "keeping the hard drive" lol.
    2. If it doesn't react to pressing Eject, then to my knowledge, no, not without physically opening the drive. Sony will remove it for ya though.

    when the ylod is repaired nothing should be touched on the console or hard drive, its a repair to the motherboard, unless they decide to change the board/drive/unit
