This kind of error is caused mainly by problems with energy suply, what corrupts the Hard Disk data (or not).
if you loose all your information, unfortunatelly you will not recover it =/

to avoid this kind of problem, try use a line filter and don't let the PS3 turned on (i mean, in the on/off switch behind the system) when not using it !

My playstation 3 gave me screen gave me a message of " The hard disk database will be rebuilt." Can anyone tell what this means????


Firstly don't worry, your HDD has become corrupted which is quite common if you don't switch your PS3 off properly.


Its difficult to say whether you'll lose any data or not, but if you rebuild the database your HDD should be fixed. If it gives you an option to rebuild the database then choose it.


If it doesn't then access the recovery menu and choose option 3 as described in the thread below.

Updating killzone2, killed my ps3


If you get stuck in a loop like this, most of the time it's because you have bad sectors on the hard drive and / or the drive is failing.

If you have a spare sata drive around I'd swap it with your current PS3 drive and see if that corrects the problem

Since you're using a new drive the PS3 will require an external usb drive hooked up with a copy of firmware 2.60.

Check out my guide below:

I'm still working on my guides so if anything is confusing just let me know and I'll explain further.

Hope this helps.
