Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
MY PS3 BEGAN PROMPTING "HARD DISK CORRUPTED" AFTER THE UPDATE FROM BROTHERS IN ARMS HELLS HIGHWAY. IT WILL BEGIN TO RESTART BUT AFTER REBOOTING IT STARTS ALL ONER AGAIN. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
It's simple. I fixed it by taking the hd out and (optional) air spraying it. I then slid it in and turned my PS3 back on. After that it came up with the disk error, so I pulled the hd back out and started the recovery thing like normal. Here is the real fixer: a screen should pop up asking you if you want to format the hd, say yes both times. When it begins to do it, slide the hd back in and let it format. Then simply restart or let it restart and your set. It should boot up as normal. or
reformatted it and then when he got home and put it back into his it asked him to reformat again and this did the trick. It's been working ever since. He called Sony and they wanted him to send back his hard drive and they would either fix or send him a "new" refurbished one for $150. I don't think so!!

Tips for a great answer:
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.
