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 .

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

My ps3 keeps on saying your hard drive is corrupted


Likely, your HDD is corrupted. Before you attempt to reformat the HDD, and will thus lose all your information, if you have a spare laptop harddrive laying around, try swapping them -- the PS3 uses regular SATA HDDs. If that works, then the problem is with the original PS3 HDD, and needs to be formatted. If the new drive does not work either, then the problem is with the PS3 itself, and it will need to be serviced.
When the time comes to format the drive, check this article below --

Hard disk is corrupt


Get your manual and then take the HDD out and reformat it on your computer using FAT32. If that will not resolve the problem then buy a new HDD.

The following message is displayed: "System hard disk file system is corrupted." What does this mean.


It means that your hard disk drive needs to be reformatted. You get this error when the system shut off while data is being saved on the hard disk drive.

Not saving games lost files seems to be corrupted


You can try to reformat the entire hard drive, or you can buy a new hard drive.

To reformat the drive, in the PS3 menu:
NOTE: This will erase everything you saved on the hard drive.

1) Go to the Settings menu, then select System Settings.
2) Select Format Utility, then select Format Hard Disk.
3) Select Quick Format

To replace the Hard Drive, buy any 2.5 inch notebook hard drive that has a serial ATA connection. Then remove the old hard drive from the left side of the PS3 and install the new hard drive.

The hard disks file system is corrupted.


If you can still access the PS3 menu, then reformat your hard drive by going to:

Settings > System Settings > Format Utility > Format Hard Disk

If you cannot, then you can try:
1) Remove the Hard drive, connect it to a PC and reformat it.
2) Download the latest PS3 operating system from the Playstation website and store it on a USB drive. Then insert the USB drive into the PS3 and start the PS3, and then install the operating system from the USB.

Saying hard disk corrupt then restores but game freezes


Is this a game on your hard drive or a CD? If it is on your hard drive then it quite possibly had a bad download OR your hard drive is on its last leg.
