Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Have you performed any updates recently? If so, then if a friend of yours has a known working ps3, or if you want to buy one for a backup, see if you can swap hdds for a test. It won't ruin theirs, it's just a test to see if it might have been an update. If it works fine, and you have two sata connectors on your PC's motherboard, then you can format yours with MSDOS on the command prompt and copying your friends files over to yours. You will have to completely format your drive to remove any and all corrupted files. Here's one I found on Ebay
