Unfortunately it sounds like you do need a new HDD.
If you only played for 4hrs I can only assume that your machine is still under warrenty- in which case SONY should fix the problem for you.
If not, follow this link for a good step-by-step guide to replacing it, seem fairly straight forward -

Make sure you read the NOTICES section at the top of the page so you know what you are getting yourself into.
Also, check this link to actually see someone doing it before you attempt it yourself -

How do I fix currupt data


I believe you mean "corrupt data". When we have message corrupt data means that something wrongs with hard disk. You can try correct problem running full disk check.

Check your hard disk for errors
You can help solve some computer problems and improve the performance of your computer by verifying that your hard disk has no errors .
Open Computer by clicking the button " Start " and then click Computer.
Right-click the hard drive you want to check, and then click Properties.
Click the Tools tab , and then , under Error-checking , click Check . Administrator permission required If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation , type the password or provide confirmation .
To automatically fix problems with files and folders that the scan detects , select Automatically fix file system errors . Otherwise , the disk check will report problems but not solve .
To run a full disk check , select Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors . This scan attempts to find and repair physical errors on the same hard disk and may need more time to complete .
To check for errors in both files and for physical errors , select both check boxes AutoCorrect file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors .
Click the Start button .
Depending on the size of your hard disk , this process may take several minutes . For best results, do not use your computer for other tasks while it lasts error checking .
note
If you select the Automatically fix file system errors for a disk that currently in use (for example , the partition that contains Windows), you will be prompted to reschedule the disk check for the next time you restart your computer your .

After formatting my currupted external 640GB HDD (Transcend Storejet 25M),I can only save 10 or so GB of data/video before it gets unresponsive.At this stage,the computer itself (Vista) does not response....


The data on the external disk was corrupted because the hard disk from it was dying. Take it out of the case , put it directly in a desktop and test it with HDTune (the free version of course) -it will tell you the damage status and if it's recoverable.
If not then it's dead - junk it.

Acer Netbook OS


if you are getting this message about corrupted partitions, you need to check and possibly replace the hard drive. There is a program to check the hard drive called Hard Disk Sentinel. It is designed for SSD hard drives like the Acer Aspire One has. Yours has a 160GB hard drive in it now.

Hard disk problem(locked by a password)


Hi Someone has set the hard disk password in the BIOS. This stops the hard disk from being accessed until the password is sent to it. The hard disk itself is now locked - you cannot put it in another system - it will just not work until it receives the correct password. I am sorry but unless you know the password there is no way to access the data on the hard disk. You would have to send it to a data recovery firm or possibly return it to the disk manufacturer but contact them first as they will probably destroy all the data on the hard disk. Sorry - but you will have to buy  new hard disk and reset the CMOS before you fit the new one and remove all BIOS passwords.

My ps3 tells me the hard disk is corrupted


Sounds like you might need a new hard drive. You could try to disconnect it and reconnecting it, but usually it does not fix the problem. just remember you need a 2.5 sata hard drive (might be a good thing, if you ever wanted more hard drive space).

Ps3 hard drive


New hard drive on the system what size hd do you have? I can get you a good deal on a sony hard drive, If you dont know how to pull the hard drive out check the manual it should show you. (go to an electronic store and tell them you want to upgrade your ps3 hd and they can guide you to 20gb hds to 250gb just for the ps3)
Let me know your progress, Should not be to much 60gb is about 50$ better then 150 via sony!
If you dont want to bother with it let me know I do purchase these systems and can get you a new/used one cheap!
