Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
There might be a problem with the hard drive itself. Formating the drive shouldn't take that long unless you did the full format option.
As far as viruses go forget about it. There is NO WAY your PS3 can get a virus. It's a linux based machine with crazy encryption. ONLY Sony would be able to do something like that and that's not something they would ever do.
Your question about the 47 vs 55 is a good one. I'm not 100 sure but it's probably due to bad sectors on the hard drive, hence the long format time. Easiest thing for you to do is to swap the drives and see what happens.
