Is there a way to make the PS3 think that a laptop is an HDD?

I need to back up my save files because the PS3 is showing signs of YLODing again. I won't be reballing again, because although the last reball made my PS3 last for like 2 years, I'm just going to get a slim.(goodbye, BC... T.T)

Only thing is, I don't have an HDD, and none of my friends do, so I've been stuck not being able to play my PS3 for the longest time.

...If you're just backing up saves, drop the less than $10 price for a USB drive and use that instead. It's probably less expensive than the male to male USB cable that you will need to connect the PS3 to the laptop via USB.

Try getting the slim PS3 now, before the old PS3 YLoD's.

Then simply initiate a complete file transfer, and you'll get everything moved, including saves that are copy protected and so cannot be moved to a thumb drive.
