    Does it mention a corrupt file? I have never heard of the problem you are having. What is the exact message that the PS3 gives you?

If it keeps saying that the hard drive needs to be reformatted, then you you have a bad hard drive if it will not reformat. It's very easy to replace your hard drive. Thanks!

Playstation needs to be rebuilt


This could be a firmware problem. Initially, what you can try is to unplug the power cable from your PS3, unplug the jacks as well. Leave it off and unplugged for about 10 minutes. Then plug it back in then try to turn it on. If the same problem persists, you can try to reflash the firmware of your unit. You can download it from Sony's website together with the instruction.

My playstation 3 gave me screen gave me a message of " The hard disk database will be rebuilt." Can anyone tell what this means????


Firstly don't worry, your HDD has become corrupted which is quite common if you don't switch your PS3 off properly.


Its difficult to say whether you'll lose any data or not, but if you rebuild the database your HDD should be fixed. If it gives you an option to rebuild the database then choose it.


If it doesn't then access the recovery menu and choose option 3 as described in the thread below.

The hard disk data base will be rebuilt. AN error occured during the rebuild. The disk must eb formated


Sounds like there are bad sectors on the hard drive. Try quick formatting the hard drive and see if it goes all the way thru, if it does then try saving games on it and reloading the saved games, if it does then the hard drive is good. If it doesnt then the hard drive is bad. If you can't get the hard drive to format then that means the hard drive is bad and you would need to replace it.
