There is already a solution by a User :-

Got home, downloaded flow on the new PS3 and tried to play, just before the game launches, the screen returns to XMB with this error: "There is an error During Startup (80010017)"... But I did Active my new PS3... So I went back into Account Management ([Friends] [Account Management]), de-activated and activated again, PROBLEM RESOVLED. Seems like the machine isn't happy with activation before download, I guess.

If problem still persists, let me know.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Press and hold power the unit will come on beep twice then shut off. Next press and hold the power until the unit beeps again then release it. That should take you to the recovery menu. Then you can format your Playstation. Also you can put a new hard drive in to format in instead.

I get error 80010017 when i load a copied game on my ps3

When you say a copied game, I'm supposing you mean a game you've burnt to a CD. This is illegal, if you do mean that, I do not suggest it at all.
You cannot use burnt games on CD's on the PS3, as they have codes and software both on the system and the real CD's to confirm it's the real deal that you are using.

Comes up with error 80010017

The error codes definition:Can't start Blu-ray Game.

Try doing a system restore and see if that takes care of it. If you do this you will lose all saved game data unless you back up your system.
