Does it mention the hard drive or did you recently try to perform a firmware update?

    OK no prob. You're hard drive is failing / has bad sectors.

    You just need to replace the drive with any SATA drive that is 500gb and below.

    You can get a drive just about anywhere or use one from a laptop as long as it's sata.

    This is relatively cheap and easy to fix so consider yourself lucky.

    Please change my solution rating to FixYa and let me know if you have any other questions.

Error message: hard drive corruption

is your ps3 still under its warranty, if it wont sort it when you hit ok, then it sounds like a ****for the pro's. Phone them up(you can get there number from their website) explain the problems your having and they will either send you a replacement or offer to fix yours. Unfortunately i think you have lost all your game saves, unless they offer to repair it, then maybe it'll be still there when you get it back. Hope this helps.
