Go to System Settings, then select Restore PS3 System.

This will just completely start you fresh like when you bought it.

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

My PS3 starts up but then says "The hard disk file


Your HARD DRIVE (aka: Hard Disk), located on the left side of the unit, has crashed. You will need to replace the HD.

When you replace your hard drive, you will need to have the latest firmware on a

usb stick. Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Once prompted by your system you will need to insert the usb stick into the

PS3. Good luck..



You will need 2.5" Sata Hard Drive.

PS3 stuck on screen saying hard disk corrupted


Hi

Please refer to this link for ways to troubleshoot the hard drive and sometimes if you are lucky you can recover the problem - however if these solutions fail the unit will have to be sent in for repair I am afraid.
