It is an external drive or the internal replacement drive?
The external must be formatted FAT32 (probably the internal too).

PS3 not recognizing my portable Hard drive


Make sure that the file system on the harddisk in FAT32, other file systems are not suported by the PS3.
If the file system is not FAT32, the ps3 won't even try to read the disk.

You should reformat your harddisk into fat32, use google to findt a tool that can do the formatting for you becouse windows xp and up are only supporting
formating in fat32 up to 40GB.

Succes.

Save/load problem on ps3


You can try to reformat the entire hard drive, or you can buy a new hard drive.

To reformat the drive, in the PS3 menu:

NOTE: This will erase everything you saved on the hard drive.

1) Go to the Settings menu, then select System Settings.
2) Select Format Utility, then select Format Hard Disk.
3) Select Quick Format

To replace the Hard Drive, buy any 2.5 inch notebook hard drive that has a serial ATA connection. Then remove the old hard drive from the left side of the PS3 and install the new hard drive.

File corrupted


Just replace the hard drive. If it is under a year old then call Sony customer support and they may pay for a new hard drive. I hope this helps.

PS3 corrupted hard disk


Yes. All you need is a Seagate SATA 2.5" hard drive. It doesn't matter how many GB it has. If you have the 20GB or 60GB model of PS3 for goodness sake keep it!! That model is backwards compatible and will play PS1 and PS2 games. The 40GB unit does not have this luxury. I hope this helps you. Good luck and happy gaming!!

Ps3 power supply


I can sell you a power supply if interested but if you get a red light the power supply is most likely still good. You may need a new motherboard.
