When I insert a DVD to play it is choppy, it freezes then unfreezes every half second or so. The audio isn't affected at all, just the video. Games or Blu rays will not even play, they say invalid disc...


40GB and 60GB 1st Gen PS3 consoles are notorious for faults with the Blu-ray lens. With your warranty more than likely expired you will not get a replacement. With no support offered for older versions either I suggest buying a newer 'slimline' version. Bigger hard drive, support offered and more reliable.

How to fix PlayStation 3 corrupted hard drive If your PS3 will not fully load...


How to fix PlayStation 3 corrupted hard drive

If your PS3 will not fully load and you are getting a message that the hard drive is corrupted. Go through the options in recovery mode. The link below will help cover those options.

If you have gone through the recovery mode options then you may just need to do a full format of the hard drive or there is something wrong with the drive.

Note with a normal hard drive from time to time a sector will fail on a drive. Normally Windows will fix the this with on of the backup sectors on the drive but in the case of your console systems this may not repair the drive.

1. Next what you will need to do is remove your hard drive from your PS3. To do this you will need a small flat head screw driver to pop the hard drive cover off. You will see a tap on the right side to put the screw driver in.

2. Next you will want to remove the lock screw that holds the drive in place. Normally it is green.

3. Next lift up the lever and pull the drive back to the right into the open space. This will disengage the drive from the PS3.

If you are needing the steps to remove the hard drive from the PS3 Slim go to this link. How to remove the hard drive on a Playstation 3 Slim.

Note after you get the hard drive removed from the PS3 you do not have to remove the drive from the caddy that the drive is in.

4. Now you will need to connect the drive to your computers SATA hard drive port and powersupply. Note if your computer does not have a SATA connector and/or you have a manufactured computer like a Dell or HP you may not be able to connect your hard drive directly to the computer. They make USB external kits that will let you connect the drive externally via USB.

5. Next you will want to boot your and open My Computer. After my computer is open you will want right click and select format for the drive that is from the PS3. The format options should open up. You need to make sure that the "Quick Format" option is not check. Note be sure that before you click Start on the format that you are selecting the drive for the PS3.
Note if the Full Format hangs then this is a sign that there is actually a problem with the hard drive its self.

Also note if you have the drive connected to the internal connectors it will show up like a standard drive but if you have it connected externally it will show as a removable drive. If you do not see a extra drive letter you may need to assign one to the drive the links below will help you set a drive letter.

How to change your drive letter in Windows Vista and Windows 7

How to change your drive letter in Windows XP


6. After you format the drive you will want to put it back into the PS3. When you put it back in you will be prompted to format the PS3. The PS3 format will setup the drive for use with the PS3.
Note you may need to reload the firmware on the PS3. If you need to do this you can get the firmware and instructions to install it from this link.

http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/pc_update/index.htm
At this point you should be able to use your PS3 as normal. If you still have trouble then you most likely have a problem with the hard drive its self.

The hard disk may be faulty. Try reseating the hard disk if the PS3 still cannot find the hard disk then it is faulty and a new hard disk is needed and the PS3 software needs to be installed on the new hard disk.

Cannot start the correct hard disk was not found


You need to reset the settings on the PS3 Service Setup screen.

I cant remember how to access that section tho... I read it in the free PS3 Repair Guide but I just cant recall.

Once in there you change 1 setting to reset defaults and this will attempt to rewrite settings to the drive, which will allow the PS3 to boot (or start) it.

Then restart the console and it is Fixed (or not)!

If that doesn't fix it, you will need to replace your hard drive. That process is really easy... all you really need to know is where the screws go.

I would recommend downloading the free ps3 repair guide and reading through it. It's over 300 pages though, so not easy to remember where sections are. You can find it here.

Godfather 2 does not play on my ps3 - freezes at title screen


Try to RESTORE FILE SYSTEM on your ps3.
Follow this guide,

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when it turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.
