Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Whenever i put a disk in the messege hard disk to be rebuilt comes up and the it doesnt work
Sounds like you need to format your hard drive, if your system will not let you do this you may need to remove the drive and either use another PS3 or connect it to your PC, the PS3 uses a SATA drive like the drives found in laptops, it is formatted to FAT32, if you need to back up data you can either use an external memory device connected to your PS3 and use the backup option in menu or if that is not possible due to tech problems with the console connect drive to your pc and copy all data to a folder, please remember that the drive is FAT32 if you format on your pc, the best way to connect the drive to your pc is with an external HDD case, borrowing one rather than buying would be a good option, anyhoo so either way you have formatted your drive you replace it and now the system should say it is formatting again this is fine just let it do its thing, if you want a stable way to update visit the official site and download the latest updates for the PS3 and place onto an external memory device and connect to the console and update from there. I hope i have atleast shed some light on the problem if nothin else good luck and be lucky :)
