The only way to recover the data is if you have done a data backup using your PS3 (which is now dead). There is literally no other way to get the data, as it is encrypted and locked to the specific PS3.

If you want to get your data back, you will need to either try gilsky's YLOD fix (google it, there should be videos and a pdf file as well), or get it fixed by someone in your area and back up using the PS3's backup utility. Then you could sell it on ebay and buy a PS3 slim and restore the backup on that one.

When my console YLODed I tried everything. i assumed that if I got a 2.5" SATA enclosure for my PS3 drive that I would be able to pull the data off on to my PC, but it is completely encrypted, meaning you cannot get it back.
