Hello. The PS3 should say that it's corrupted and ask you to press X to reformat it. If it keeps doing that then you need to take it out and use a USB external drive case and reformat it on your PC. Just plug it in and click on Start > Computer > right click on the drive and click format.

Or you can just replace it and upgrade it at the same time.

I wish you the best of luck. Thanks!!

If the drive is not being detected this can be a sign that you have corrupted data on the hard drive or that the drive is bad. The link below will help you address the corrupted data issue. If this does not fix the problem then you will need to replace the hard drive.

System won't start it says you have a currupted hardrive


You'll need to reformat the console's hard disk. This can be done via the Settings > System section of the XMB. Note: All contents of hard disk including saves will be deleted.

Hard disk currupt


Unfortunately it sounds like you do need a new HDD.
If you only played for 4hrs I can only assume that your machine is still under warrenty- in which case SONY should fix the problem for you.
If not, follow this link for a good step-by-step guide to replacing it, seem fairly straight forward -

Make sure you read the NOTICES section at the top of the page so you know what you are getting yourself into.
Also, check this link to actually see someone doing it before you attempt it yourself -
