[other] Create a clone of an encrypted ps3 HDD?

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all! I'm not sure where to put this so I don't mind the mods moving it somewhere more appropriate. Anyway, my 5 year old Playstation 3 died and I don't have a backup of the data(this wouldn't matter anyway because the data is married to the motherboard of the ps3) but I was thinking there must be a way to get the data using linux... Now, I don't want to play around with the actual HDD and corrupt it because I could easily fork over the cash to fix the system temporarily so that it runs long enough to transfer everything to a new ps3. Is it possible, using my Ubuntu system to make a clone (Hardware)
