Nah, it was the same PS3. Just different HDD. So everything should have transferred over.|
There's loads of people with the same problem. Some saying Uncharted 2 data causes the issues, others all sorts of things.
It didn't copy over any of the 'protected' saves, even though it should, and it didn't restore over any of the game installation or downloads, even though when I connected the HDD to my PC I could see that they were there (it had 'backed up' 32gb in lots of 3.99gb files, but it was clearly only trying to restore the first two files, one being 320mb the other being about 240mb).
As I say though, loads of others have had the same issue and never resolved it. Sony's answer appears to be 'yeah, some things cause it to break. Shit happens'.
