any games.The drive seems like it wants to start, but you cant hear the
drive spinning the disk.Its like its not doing anything at all.

It is because It is because fat partitions dont suupport manupulation of files bigger than 4 gb. Convert it to ntfs and it will work. And you might wonder that it worked for 15 min. ISo when you play a game lots of cache is generated and size of game is nearly doubled so this causes problem on a fat partition. And on

How long do you wait before you turn off your PS3 because in most games if you hit the PS button while the game is loading something or saving to your hard drive it may seem like it froze, but give it a minute and it should go back to normal

Rebuilding database


Seems that a glitch or error occured, I suggest Calling sony first as I am not there to actually diagnose it I dont want you to kill your system.. See what they can do for you 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
If not shut it off wait a few minutes and try to re-boot, if there are any other menues that pop up let me know. If you could tell me exactly what happens from turn on to the problem that would help.

The Red light is due to the HDD (hard drive).
There is one of 2 problems:
1. The connection is loose or
2. The HDD is just bad.
This was an issue that has been discussed over in the Playstation forums and it seems that re-seating
(removing & reinstalling) the HDD has solved the problem for many but some people have just
received bad hard drives period.
If you reinstall the HDD & it still beeps 3 times & gives you the red light, then you will have to replace
your HDD.
If I remember correctly, PS3s use Hitachi Laptop Drives. IMO, Hitachi is not well known for good
drives. I replaced mine with a 160GB Western Digital drive I got for free a few months ago. I haven't
had any problems since.
Hitachi makes a good drive, but the ones that fail seem to fail really bad. Western Digital seems to
make the best drives and they offer a very good warranty service as well.


I do buy broken ps3's so if you dont want to bother let me know!

sounds like a failed Blue ray drive or firmware failure. Update the firmware and if it dosent work, you will probably need to send it for repairs
