I had an old 80Gb PS3 from 2009 which suddenly had a hard disk error a few weeks back, saying:
Could not start, The appropriate storage system was not found.
I had backed it up a week prior this this error on an external HDD. I have had to exchange the PS3 for a super slim model, since the older one couldn't be fixed.
However when I tried restoring from my backup onto the newer PS3, The restore function took only 3 minutes, but all my game data & saves were not restored. Only my music/images were restored.
Why aren't my game data/saves restoring from my old backup from the other PS3 onto my newer PS3?
