The harddrive in your ps3 has died. You need to purchase a new one, the ps3 takes a simple Laptop 2.5inch harddrive. These can be purchased for around $35 for an 80gb harddrive.

I tried to jailbreak my ps3 while it was on firmware 3.56. I get to 99% and it says"data is corrupted

Hi there,

If the Data is corrupted, then push and hold the PS3 power button down until you hear it beep twice. This will boot it up into Restore Mode.

From Restore Mode, you will want to Restore PS3 System. Unfortunately, this will reformat the system causing you to lose any of your saved data. However, it will restore the system back to a working condition again.

My suggestion is that next time you attempt to jailbreak your PS3, back up the hard drive first. This way if something goes wrong you won't lose your saves or achievements. :)

Every time i turn my system on it says the Ps3 will restore your corrupted hard drive, i finish restoring it then it restarts and i keep having to restoring it again and again. Is there anyway I can...

How are you restoring it? You need a memory stick and you need to find the update on playstations website and follow instructions on how to save it to the memory stick. Then you insert it in the ps3 and it should start restoreing from the memory stick. Atleast this is how you do it when your putting a new hard drive in your ps3 or a used laptop hard drive. It wont restore if it doesnt know what programs to put on it.

Hi,my ps3 is saying, the hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored. the it says press ok. after i press ok, then it says restoring the system, after that it restarts it goes back to the...

here's some ideas:

I fixed my ps3!! All you need is a friend with a ps3!! Swap the hdd's and boot up your friends ps3, format the hdd, put it back in your ps3 and you may need to format it again.

I tried to fix my friend's PS3 HDD that way in still gave an error every time he booted up his PS3. At that point I stuck the PS3 HDD in my laptop, booted from a Windows CD and fully formatted it that way...stuck it back in his machine...used it to format....finally got his stuff going. Took a little extra time but no problems since.

Wont play ps3 games

try restoring your ps3. My ps3 wouldn't read disc, but since I restored it it's now reading discs. Go to system settings on you're home screen. Then go to restore ps3 system & then go to full restore. It will take 3 & 1/2 hours but it could fix you're problem.

My playstation will not read dvd's and just recently stopped reading games. I'm just wondering how to reset the entire system

  1. From the XMB™ home menu, go to icn_settings.gif(Settings) > icn_syssettings.gif(System Settings) > [Restore Default Settings].

  2. Once you select [Restore Default Settings], you will see a list of settings that will be restored. Scroll through them and press the icn_btnx_color.gifbutton to restore the settings.

  3. After the operation is complete, you will see the initial setup screen that appeared the first time you turned on the PLAYSTATION 3.
    You will need to go through the initial setup process before you can use the PLAYSTATION 3.
The Restore Default Settings feature will erase any previously saved settings and restore all of the following settings to the default:
  • BD/DVD Settings
  • Music Settings
  • Chat Settings
  • System Settings
  • Date and Time Settings
  • Accessory Settings
  • Display Settings
  • Sound Settings
  • Security Settings
  • Network Settings
  • Internet Browser Settings
Read this next paragraph carefully!!!!!!
Also, do not confuse "Restore Default Settings" with the "Restore PS3 System" option (the next option down on the menu). The "Restore PS3 System" will not only restore the default settings, but it will also delete all hard disk content. (You will lose all saved content from your PS3 system's hard drive if you use "Restore PS3 System.)

My ps3 won't restore

Ok so with mine I turn it on and it says something along the lines of the file system is corrupted. Restore now and it restores and restarts but it asks me to do it again and again etc. so mine is screwed I am going to have to send it in how you figure out if you need to send yours in is hold down the ps3 power button (MUST BE OFF FIRST) it will turn on just keep holding it until it turns off then do it again but this time while you’re holding it you’ll hear a beep and then 2 beeps after you hear the 2 beeps let go you’ll go into this thing called safe mode ok from here you’re going to press restore file system I think its option 3 it will say "preparing" ok now if it ends up taking more than an hour and it still says preparing unplug your ps3 and go back into safe mode and your
unfortunately going to have to press restore this will remove everything you have on the ps3(Saves, movies, music, etc.) now after you pick that option wait about 4 hours if it still says preparing then I hope you have the warranty cause you’re going to need a entirely new ps3 I have heard of there being a way to restore it with a cd but you will need to do some searching and talk to an expert in that stuff I wish you good luck
