    Data Transfer Utility

    You can now transfer (copy or move) data that is saved in the system storage of one PS3™ system to the system storage of another PS3™ system using an Ethernet cable.

    Preparing the systems to transfer data

    Before starting the data transfer operation, you must perform the following steps.

    1.Update the system software of both PS3™ systems to the latest version.

    2.Prepare the PS3™ system that will send the data (the “source system”).

    If multiple users exist on the source PS3™ system, you must perform the following operations for all of the users before starting the data transfer operation.

    Create a Sony Entertainment Network account if a user does not have an account.

    - Select (PlayStation®Network) > (Sign Up), and then follow the on-screen instructions to create an account.

    Deactivate the PS3™ system if the data to be transferred contains content that was purchased from PlayStation®Store.

    - Select (PlayStation®Network) > (Account Management) > (System Activation).

    Back up, or "sync", trophy information on the PS3™ system with the PlayStation®Network server if you want to transfer trophy information.

    - Sign in to PlayStation®Network, and then select (PlayStation®Network) > (Trophy Collection).

    Sign in to (PlayStation®Home) before transferring the data if you have obtained reward items for use in (PlayStation®Home) on the source system.

    Back up your profile information and stages you created in LittleBigPlanet™ to your saved game. You can then use the data that was backed up when playing LittleBigPlanet™ on the destination PS3™ system.
