Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I just got a new seagate 500gb hardrive and I changed it with the one in the ps3 wich is 80gb and every time I try to format it from the ps3 it says " An error occurred during the format operation. (8002F271) " I dont know if any one has had this same problem? Hello all, I have upgraded my laptop SATA drive from 250GB to 500GB and thought I will swap the old 250GB drive to the PS3. I encountered the same error 8002F271 whilst formating - it refused to format. I haven't tried what suggested by kiel123 as I dont have an enclousre to connect up the SATA drive as an external drive. I am wondering if there is anyway I can format the whole drive as FAT32 whilst it is the primary drive on the laptop. Also Eric10710, is your problem fixed by formating to FAT32?

First you will need to connect the hard drive to your computer or a friends, either using a hard drive enclosure or cable
Then you need to format the drive into fat32 format (full format recommended , not quick format)
Then put it back into your ps3 and have a usb flash drive with the latest ps3 software loaded
then you will be able to format the drive and load the ps3 os
