To bring the PS3 to factory settings, you need to use the reset to facorty deafults (this will format the hd) in the system settings menu, not the restore system under backup

My old ps3 got ylod. i got a new slim works perfectly fine. i figured i should put my 60 gb in it to format it so it doesnt go to waste but the formatting stops at 99%. when i put my slim hard drive back...


Formatting writes data to the disk, should a sector of the disk be damaged the hard drive may not report it to he PS3 firmware. If you can install the hard drive in a computer hard drive repair utilities, like spinrite, can often fix such problems. http://www.grc.com/spinrite.htm
Connecting it to a computer and doing a low level format there is likely to have better error correction than the built in PS3 formatting.

Tip

Very important thing to know about PS3


every time you face a software problem with your PS3, always FORMAT your PS3 you will only lose your saved game but NOT the achievements, its so easy to perform, format it and use FULL format(Custom) NOT easy format after that you will face almost no problems at all, keep in mind that all the PS3 update will NOT be removed you will find that you still have the latest updates but you will have to re-update you games if they have any updates for them like COD MW2, also you have to know that PS3 Operating System is not located on the Hard Disk so if you have a damaged Hard Disk and you cant access you PS3 because of that you can easily remove the Hard Disk from the back of your PS3 and buy brand new laptop Hard Disk with any size you want so if you have 40GB you can easily change it to 120GB with no troubles and with no concerns wither your PS3 is ganna start all over again or not :) i hope that i was helpful to you guys have fun with your AWESOME PS3 and long live PS3 :)))) cheers for that

I have a corrupted file on my ps3 and it trys to repair it self after 30 seconds.it goes right back to the same screen. HELP!!!


Your problem may be more widespread than just that one file. The file system on your hard drive may be corrupt. You can try to reformat the entire hard drive in an attempt to remove all the errors in the PS3 data, or you can buy a new hard drive. You may have to replace the hard drive if the hard drive is failing, and therefore not reading or writing data properly.

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.

After installing the new Hard Drive you will need to format the drive. When you turn on the PS3, you will see onscreen instructions to help you with this.

Hard drive


You need to use a Windows install disk, or the computer recovery disk.

At startup of new windows installation, chose new installation and then chose the option Format hard drive.

Note: the windows install disk must be bootable, Upgrade install disk (non bootable) does not have the format option.

Platstation 3 hard disk error


It should have formatted with your ps3, even if you formatted the HDD on your laptop it would have asked you the same thing, since the PS3 asks you that so it can install some folders for the pictures, games music etc.

your problem could be caused by faulty HDD installation, a faulty HDD or a broken ps3 that cant read HDDs anymore.

I would make sure the HDD is installed correctly, if that doesnt work I suggest buying a new HDD. If both of those dont work then you have a Ps3 that has a trouble reading HDDs

Hardware Corruption


donno if your still interested to know this but you dont need to buy a new hard disk incase formating or restoring did not work out. you can always remove your hard drive. follow the removal tips in the help and support ps3 handbook. thereafter you should connect it to a computer through usb drive. you can do this by dismantling any old hard disk casing and replacing the hard disk with the ps3 hard disk. once done connect it to a computer, format it and then put it back into the ps3 system and upon putting it on. you'll just follow the easy format instructions and your back in business
