    I just bought another ps3 and I want to transfer/copy/move a playstation network account from the first one to the second one. Anyone know how to do it? One account is mine and the other is my brothers. They are both master accounts.

    How do I go about making a backup and how big would it be, because I do not have an external HDD. The biggest thing I have is a 2GB Flash stick. Could I use the second PS3 as an external HDD somehow?

    hmm.. size will only be the amount of info stored on your ps3. if you have music, movies, or pics, they will be backed up. remove them it they restrict you. a backup is made by going to settings, then to system settings, and finally selecting backup utility. do what it tells you. then install that backup on the other system in backup untility and it should work. if not, whats so bad about making a new account. is there more to accounts than i know? please let me know.

    I have absolutely nothing on that account, so it shouldn't be too big. I guess the important thing is to maintain the rankings for online. I guess a name change is not a big deal. If it doesn't work that's what I'll end up doing. I forgot my PSN password and e-mail password anyways...

    Thanks for all the help you gave me. I greatly appreciate it!!!
