Also you can format it right on your console. Under the System tab I believe it is, there is a reset or format option. Try that. It will delete everything. Also if your gonna do that, if you want to upgrade your hard drive, now is that time to do it. My PS3 has a 250GB hard drive in it. Just be sure that you get a 2.5 inch hard drive.

    I have seen this a couple times before and what worked for me in the store is update it from a flash drive/USB drive. You can download the update file from the Playstation website here,http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/Sy... or if you want it sent to you, send me an e-mail at collin_haugen@yahoo.com and I'll send you the file required for the update.

    Same for you, you will have to format or replace your existing hard drive. Try either of the solutions I have posted and post your results on here. If they don't work, I'll try my best to try and fix your problem.

If you have an external case to put an hard drive from a laptop then you can take out the one in your ps3 and link it to a pc and format it. probably it will solve the problem.

Good luck!

My ps3 keeps on saying your hard drive is corrupted


Likely, your HDD is corrupted. Before you attempt to reformat the HDD, and will thus lose all your information, if you have a spare laptop harddrive laying around, try swapping them -- the PS3 uses regular SATA HDDs. If that works, then the problem is with the original PS3 HDD, and needs to be formatted. If the new drive does not work either, then the problem is with the PS3 itself, and it will need to be serviced.
When the time comes to format the drive, check this article below --

Corrupted data


It's possible that you're turning off the ps3 while it's saving, corrupting the save data.
Make sure when you turn off the ps3 it's not in the process of saving.
Try the above and if you still have no luck it's possible there's an issue with your ps3's hard drive, have you had any problems with any other games?

Also, if the problem persists, try deleting the MW2 gamedata, located under gamedata on the ps3's menu.
Best of luck to you.

My ps3 says your harddrive has a corrupt


this is usually caused when you turn off your ps3 while it is saving or loading. your best bet is to shut down your ps3 completely but you should definitely go to play station's website.

Ps3 needs to be reformmated


go into settings, then system settings, then format utility. this reformats you hard drive. you most likley have something corrupted on it. Did you turn it off while the hard drive light was on. I've done this a couple of times.

Hard Drive PS3


Hi there,

The easiest method of working around a Corrupted hard drive is this.

You need to go out and purchase a 3.5" SATA USB Enclosure. they are quite cheap.
you then must remove your Hard drive from the PS3 and insert it into the enclosure.
connect the enclosure to your PC, the HD Will show up in your computer, you must then perform a FULL FORMAT on the harddrive under the FAT32 Format.

Once done, re-insert your hard-drive, and the problems should have gone !

If they do persist or the hard drive is still corrupted, i would suggest contacting sony Customer support !

Hope this helps ?!

My PS3 wont allow me to download anything to the harddrive.


This error has been dubed as the Virus error by PS3 users. The hard drive needs to be completely wiped. You can do this by doing the full system restore. (Yea, the one that takes 10 hours) One or more of your files may be corrupted with a very small but lethal file that affects the PS3 but may not affect your PC. If all else fails, try a different hard drive. I hope this helps you. Good luck and happy gaming!!
