PS3 Data Transfer Utility help?
Can I use it with systems on different firmware? My fat is on 3.41 (for obvious reasons) and the slim is 3.61.
After searching I saw that I can. It won't forcibly update the firmware on my old console, will it?

No and don't try, it will not work! you relay don't need to link your hacked ps3 to your 3.61 ps3. Not good. "Rootkits" Also turn all your pnp off on all network units and that means computers as well if you have a hacked ps3 on the same networks, and turn off deans ftp from auto starting if you use MultiMan.
Sony or its fan-boys can brick you or exploit you, then fuc7 you some more, if they wish. unlikely I know but passable.
If you have a ps3 with ver 3.56 on then treat it as a threat to your privet life just like you should do with mfw or cfw and homebrew, untrusted.
Unless it comes from here at PS3News or Deank's work, and the Rebug team.

I have a dial-up connection at home. I suppose I just won't worry about transferring the data.

what's your phone line got to do with it? I think you maybe confused.

I was pointing out that I don't connect to the internet with either PS3, and I only use an ethernet cable with the fat to transfer games or backup saves.
Could I use the backup utility to transfer the data? The save data I want on the slim isn't copy protected but, I can't use it because it belongs to another user.

This was my 1st tut I posted some time back on here. So this may or may not give you some idea. and hopefully aid you in your quest.
This is all the help I am going to give now on this because there is more then ample information to help work it out on this forum.

It would be a LOT easier to just grab some USB storage and transfer the things you want to it and then onto your other PS3. Use the Game Save utility to backup game saves.

Are you able to use the Game Save utility to backup game saves and use on another PS3? I thought there was too many limitations doing it that way, if it works at all.
With the Data Transfer Utility its faster, has no limitations in files size and will copy homebrew and its folders , trophies and game saves and users, . Unlike Game Save utility.

Some save are locked, and cannot be moved. But I have used it to backup games, change a HD, and then copy the games back to it without any issues as long as I create the same profile name on the PS3. I don't see why it wouldn't work to transfer them if the profile names are the same. Worst case you may have to use that Saved Game Editor software to change the profile ID in the save.
Also, can't you make a complete backup to USB storage as well instead of over the network?

I have not had any saves trophies that have not worked doing it the way I do so far, I never need to create any same users on the stock ps3 , as they are there after the transfer.
I agree I don't see why it will not work if the user names are the same, but it does make sense in one way if it doesn't, because of how Sony don't like game save sharing, and this would be the easiest way for us to Sharing is just use the same user name on all Ps3's.
With the way I do it there is no need to edit any profile ID because as far as the Ps3 is concerned its a legal save.
You can make a full backup on usb as long as it dose not have files over 4 gigs, like my files and game backups and video films. some are over 25 gigs in size so this is the fastest way of doing it with speeds almost reaching 60 odd megs a second using a crossover cable.
If you do it right you will have a hacked ps3 and a stock ps3, both identical in file structure and files.
