SOURCE: Hard Disk Corrupted
You can wipe the drive with your PC, but unless you use DOS you can not do anything else with it. The PS3 runs the FAT 32 system and can screw up your NTFS system on your PC if you try and run it with Windows or what not. I learned this from experience!!!! They have the external USB cases with protective sleeve and USB cable for $5 on eBay....brand new!!! Unfortunately the PS3 does not recognize the hard drive when connected using this device. Why, I don't know. It should as Jenkins said, it's like a big thumb drive. Good luck!!

well, i guess the only way so solve this is formatting it, because the firmware can't be accessed while corrupted data is on, and it makes impossible any procedure to try fix it by the system .
