Ps3 slim making a click noise from the hard drive, i just bought it a week ago and its the 320gbs. It only happens when playing killzone 2. should i take it back and get a new system?

Take it back and get a new one. If you have stuff you don't want to lose then get a usb flash drive that is at least 32g and back your hrad drive up before you take it back.

This means someone took another hard drive off of the console while it was updateing. The only way to keep it from saying that is to put the original hard drive back on that was on there when it was updateing. Ive experimented when I was selling them. And I pulled one hard drive off while it was updating and everytime I put a diffrent hard drive on it I would get that message. So I went throw like 4 hard drives before I found the actual one that was getting updated. After it updated I could put any hard drive back on it and it would work. Hope this helps..

Hard drive corrupted. Needs to refresh. If does, then I get the same error message again

Keep taking it out and re-inserting back in with it turned on (a bit dangerous, be careful.) Sooner or later you'll get a message asking you if you'd like to format your hard drive to fix the problem... accept and it'll re-format your hard-drive, you log in details would still be there but all other stuff will get erased. It worked for me, hope it works for you. Take care.

Sorry to say you got a bad hard  drive. Call MS or take the system back to walmart for a new 1 because I dont think they will give you a new hard drive. Who knows they might, call and ask!
