Playstation 3 says the hard disc file is corrupted


i have been scanning these answers for hours trying to find something that worked. i didnt want to buy another hard drive or enclosure to plug it into my pc so i tried this..... It worked first time, i just turned the system on waited for it to start getting into the loop then pulled the hard drive. it read error on the screen, the ps3 turned off. i turned it off at the power switch, plugged the hard drive back in and turned it back on and it worked first time, went straight to first time setup! im well pleased!

Stopped reading any discs


hi i have the same problem with my ps3 60gb i rang sony and they told me to restore it so i did but it didnt work so then they told me to do a full system restore but just as i was about to confirm it i asked will this delete all of my data and they said yes and they told me how to save all my data (over 30 games of data) onto 8gb memory stick2_bing.gif so i backed up all my data then i did a full system restore i am just waiting 3 hours. they said if it still doesent work they will send me a brand new 60gb ps3 so at the moment i want a brand new ps3 so fingers crossed mine is totally fu%&*d but i hope this helps everybody and p.s. dont try fixing this yourself because you wont ever get a 60gb again and you will have to pay a lot for a new ps3 and i might be getting a 60 gb ps3 for free :)
once i have restored it i will update you by tonight.

When i turn on my ps3 it says the correct hard drive cant be found. also the blue light is not on only the green power light


First of all the blue light will only be on if a disc in the in system. If the disc is in and no blue light I am not sure what the problem is. As far as the hard drive. You can do a system restore. If will format your hard drive and you will lose all saved game data and anything else you had on the drive. If you downloaded items from the playstation store, you can download them again. Just deactivate your system from the store if yoc. You might also try removing the hard drive and then putting it back in. See if it came lose at all.

Ps3 loads game but wont play it ?


The PS3 drive optics may need cleaning. It will be best that this is done by an authorized service engineer.

Ps3 hard disk file system


Contact Sony if it is still under warranty-Otherwise you will need to buy another hard drive. The installation process is really easy.
