Dear Friend,

Have you consider to replace your hard drive?. That might be a good possibility why your PS3 can not start the way it should. Try that and see what happens.

Good Luck!

Putting old hard drive in new ps3 to get game saves error


You cannot switch a hard drive from an old ps3 and put it into the new one. The new ps3 will know that a new hard drive was inserted and offer to format it.

To get the games off the old hard drive, put it back into the old ps3. Insert a USB flash drive into a USB port on the PS3 and you should be able to copy saved games from the hard drive onto the USB flash drive. You can then plug the USB flash drive into your new ps3 and copy off the saved game info,

Wen i switch on it sas grub hard disk error... its


"Grub Hard Disk Error" A minor technical note, if you don't mind. The error message is "Grub Hard Disk Error", about which the Grub manual has this to say: "The stage2 or stage1.5 is being read from a hard disk, and the attempt to determine the size and geometry of the hard disk failed." To resolve this problem, the manual then suggests that: "The general way that the Stage 1.5 handles errors is to print an error number in the form Error num and then halt. Pressing <CTRL>-<ALT>-<DEL> will reboot." ... which isn't really a suggestion at all. What's really going on is that your BIOS is buggy, and it's lying to GRUB about the geometry of your hard disk. You need to update your motherboard's BIOS with the latest version from the manufacturer. You can can do this by getting the latest version of the BIOS and your manufacturer's reflashing utility from their website, copying it onto a bootable floppy, and running it according to the manufacturer's instructions. You can download a FreeDOS boot disk image for this, if you don't have a DOS boot floppy available.

Platstation 3 hard disk error


It should have formatted with your ps3, even if you formatted the HDD on your laptop it would have asked you the same thing, since the PS3 asks you that so it can install some folders for the pictures, games music etc.

your problem could be caused by faulty HDD installation, a faulty HDD or a broken ps3 that cant read HDDs anymore.

I would make sure the HDD is installed correctly, if that doesnt work I suggest buying a new HDD. If both of those dont work then you have a Ps3 that has a trouble reading HDDs

Ps3 Can't start - correct hard disk not found


I do believe that it is a firmware issue and not a hard drive issue. If it where a true hard drive failure, your hard drive would be completely useless. Since this error only happens at start up i believe this is what happens.

1) PS3 starts-up and displays the "wave" and plays the "music"
2) The hard drive spins and the PS3 firmware is looking for the "files" on the hard drive for start-up
3) If the start-up files are not found in a certain amount of time, this message is displayed.

I may be wrong but this is my guess.
