Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I was going to play cod waw online and it said that i needed to download 3.0 firmware. I downloaded it from storage media and when the installation was done, it said that an error has occurred and i had to rebuild the hard drive and when I did, the entire ps3 was formatted. Is there a way to recover data because I didn't back it up. I also want to know if I was just un-lucky or if it was a common problem.
I've Noticed Elseware Someone Said It Was Impossible To Recover Lost Data On The Formatted HDD, Relating To The 3.0 firmware formatting the HDD, This Is Not True, As The PS3 Uses A Standard 2.5" SATA Drive, And There Are Companies That Sell/ & Have SOftware to read the PS3's .PSF & .PSU Formats, And restore The Lost Data, What Happens Is When The PS3 "Auto-Formats" The HDD It Does A Quick Format Leaving What Was Once There Still Accessible With The Right Software. I Know This 'Cause I Had To Do It With Mine When Firmware 2.80 Formatted Mine, And I Lost All My Music, & Friend Messages, Etc.

I am sorry to hear regarding your problem. Once, formatted, you cannot recover data. I have seen this problem with many people, still it is not Very Common.
Hope i helped you.
