Hello. This could be due to an internal issue or just a formatting issue with the PS3. You can pull the hard drive out and reformat it on your PC using an external USB case. Or you can just replace it and upgrade to a larger hard drive. Just get the same brand and do not go over 100GB if it's an older unit cause it will create too much heat. Good luck and thanks!!

Hard disk is corrupt will restore


Hi.

That happens because the hardware is defective. The restore will reinstall the system on the defective hard drive. After restoring the system the console will not start because the hard drive where the system has just been restored is broken.

You can attempt to recover the hard drive connecting to a computer, rebuilding partition and doing a complete formatting. Most of the times you need to replace the disk.

Regards.

An update failing at around 40% or so means there is a fault with your hard-drive. Time to get a new one.

When turned on "hard disk corrupted" hit x to


If the hard drive is corrupted it could mean two different things, The operating system on the hard drive has been damaged or the hard drive itself is damaged either way it not good. If you tried to restore 6 times and no luck it is more likely to be the hard drive is damaged, because if it was the operating system it should be recoverable.

PS3 stuck on screen saying hard disk corrupted


Hi

Please refer to this link for ways to troubleshoot the hard drive and sometimes if you are lucky you can recover the problem - however if these solutions fail the unit will have to be sent in for repair I am afraid.
