My PS3 has done this before. If it is like mine then all you have to do is wipe all the memory and restart the system which should be one of the options it can give you if you click past the "Hard drive disc is corrupt screen." This can happen because you might of shut down the system by accident when it was saving a game thus the hard drive becomes corrupted. You won't lose any online info but you will lose memory to saved games and thing else that is saved on the HDD like Demo Games. I hope this helps you. If not then I am very sorry and I am sure it will be fixed if not by my advice.

It worked first time, i just turned the system on waited for it to start getting into the loop then pulled the hard drive. it read error on the screen, the ps3 turned off. i turned it off at the power switch, plugged the hard drive back in and turned it back on and it worked first time, went straight to first time setup! im well pleased!

Hard disks file is corrupted


Has it asked you to reformat the hard disc? If you have tried that and it still doesn't work then you may need a new hard drive. Don't worry, for $20-$50 (US) you should be able to fix it. Without knowing what happened before that it's hard to say. But my best guess is that the hard drive is internally damaged in some way. Just take off the small panel on the left side, remove the screw, use the little handle and gently pull to the right then out. It should be a Seagate SATA hard drive 20, 40, 60, or 80GB. Just buy a new one from your local store or online. Make sure that you mark the bad one before you get the new one near it so you don't get tem mixed up. Then remove the 4 little screws on the mountinng cage, switch hard drives, install back into PS3 and it will give you the format screen again. Click yes and it will format, turn off, back on, and you should be all set!!

Hard disc corrupt

If the PS3's built in repair will not fix the issue then you will need to pull the hard drive and format it on a computer. The link below will take you through the process. Note if you still have trouble then there is something wrong with the hard drive and you will need to replace it.

Playstation 3 message "hard disc file system is corrupted..."


Your hard drive may have gone bad. Maybe try using a different hard drive. Once you put it in, the system data should install itself.

On our PS3 corrupt data message


Replace the hard drive as the data may be in a bad sector. I would suggest you use the sony method of carrying this out and not doing it yourself as it can viod the warranty or if you want to just purchase another hard drive.

the data is in a bad area of the disk and thus cannot be recovered. Now you can try something cleaver by take out the hard drive and run spinright on it you can get spin right at www.grc.com now i know for a fact spin right does repair corupted data by moving it out of the bad sector.

Or

Replace the disc itself these people at www.videogamerepair.com witch I found in our directory does save this kinda stuff.

So your pretty much have two choices here.

Thanks and I do hope this was Very Helpful to you!

If the hard drive will not reformat itself, then it needs to be replaced.

Corrupted disc

If you are getting the corrupted drive message and the built in PS3 options are fixing the drive then you will have to pull the drive and format it externally with a computer. The link below will help you do this.

Hard disc file corrupted-how do you repair?


you need a new hard drive. this will void your warranty but you can replace your original hard drive with another one of the same type (IDE / SATA) and all you should have to do is pop in the drive and it will ask to reformat the drive, say yes and let it go. then you can start playing your games again. if that dosn't work then your firmware is corrupt/damaged and you will need a new ps3. just take the hard disk out and use it in your computer or sell it on ebay. other than that, keep the busted ps3 for spare parts in case the 'new' one needs a new bluray drive in the somewhat near future.
