Save/load problem on ps3

My ps3 is working fine until the game goes to load or save, then it just freezes on those screens. this seems to be while the game is trying to interact with the hard drive. i have tried deleting certain things from the hard drive, including 2 cases of currupted data. is there any chance anyone knows whats wrong or what i should do about it? thanks

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.

Sounds like a bad laser, but you should restore the PS3 back to Factory to see what happens.

If you get the same results it's definitely the laser.
