I was trying to download a app. on my ps3 but it say connect media storage or something like that


Basically that means it wants some sort of Hard Disk drive, or USB Thumbdrive to install the program files to, as these items are also known as media storage devices.

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

When i try to download it says connect storage media at save destination


It sounds to me like you either have a full Hard drive, or need to format your hard drive, Did you install a new hard drive recently?

When i download a movie it says "connect storage media at sace destination"


It basically means two things:

1. You cannot save that file onto the PS3 hard drive through the PS3 Operating System (therefore, asks you for a different storage media to save it on).

2. You cannot run that software through the PS3 Operating System.

So what needs to be done is to get a storage device like an external hard drive or a flash drive to save the movie on.

I turned on my ps3 and on the screen it says: The hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored. So after I click ok it reboots and starts up all over again. I tried it several times and it...


This problem always happen when you switch off your console while it is saving data or reading data from the HDD, so your HDD file system damaged, in order to solve this problem you need an external SATA 2.5 hard disk case, extract your PS3 hard drive and insert it in the SATA 2.5 case, plug your hard disk to a computer, you will find that the whale hard disk is unallocated, so format it with FAT32 or NTFS using your computer, after that return your hard disk to your PS3 console, now, your PS3 console will recognize it, and it will ask you to format it, say YES!!... congratulation your PS3 console is working now

BUT REMEMBER THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA IN THE HARD DISK INCLUDING YOUR SAVES, IMAGES, MOVIES AND ALL YOUR STUFF


If the above solution does not work you would have to buy a new HDD for your PS3

When we start the system we get message "This hard disk file system is corrupted and will be restored". If we hit O.K. it start to restore but nothing happens after that.

New hard drive on ps3


You're almost there Robert.

What the PS3 is asking for is this:

PS3 Firmware 2.60

You've got to download it and then place it into two folders like this on an external hard drive or thumbdrive or cd if that's all you got.

PS3--UPDATE

If you look at the instructions you'll see what I'm talking about. Make sure the folder names are all capitalised or else it won't work.

Once you have this in place press START and SELECT on the controllers and it will allow you to format the hard drive.

Let me know if you get stuck or have any more questions.

Best of luck!

Upgrade of the hard drive


You cant really get a PS3 Hard Drive because Sony made their own Hard Drives so i think your gonna have to Contact them asking for a PS3 Hard Drive and i think you should really delete some Games like Demos you downloaded cause those Demos take up atleast 500 mbs each or more.
