Do you have an Hard Disk inside your PS3? if you do then try
reformatting your hardrive again to a FAT32 format. To do so, when your
ps3 console is turned off remove the hard-drive and connect it to a PC.
Then use this software: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm to format it to a FAT32 format and after that connect it back into the PS3.
Warning: This will result in the loss of all data on your hard-drive but it's the only chance of using that hard-drive again.
Was your game working at a previous time? Have you already installed the game on your hard drive? If you have played with this disk prior, I would try and get a friends copy and see if it works...It sounds like you disk is corrupted not your hard drive, even if you have the game downloaded to your hard drive it still requires a disk to play that is why I say that.
If the hard drive is hanging on the format the drive table may have just gottten corrupted. This can happen with a computer but the operating system can fix this usually. The link below will take you through connecting the hard drive to your computer and using it to format the drive. If the computer hangs on the format and/or you still have trouble with the drive then there is something wrong with the drive and you will have to replace it.
Well, at this point, interrupting the format process, normally a really dangerous thing to do, may be your only option, given the need to power down the unit, for any further maintenance.
This is the kind of thing for which the reset button was made, but if reset, given the operation of formatting a startup disk, your system may not restart.
If you have the original installation disks, be prepared to reinstall after another attempt at formatting that which is probably a corrupt disk by now.
If you choose to attempt another format, please be careful to write down the progress points [10% 20% 30%, etc.] for the use of the service personnel so that some estimation of the location on the disk of any damage can be estimated.
I would say try throwing another 2.5" Hard Drive into the system and see if that solves the problem. It seems like there is something wrong with the hard drive itself. If you don't have an extra one around, you can buy one off of Newegg.com for pretty cheap. Just make sure it's a 2.5" SATA 1.5 or 3.0 hard drive with 5400rpm and you should be just fine.
It should have formatted with your ps3, even if you formatted the HDD on your laptop it would have asked you the same thing, since the PS3 asks you that so it can install some folders for the pictures, games music etc.
your problem could be caused by faulty HDD installation, a faulty HDD or a broken ps3 that cant read HDDs anymore.
I would make sure the HDD is installed correctly, if that doesnt work I suggest buying a new HDD. If both of those dont work then you have a Ps3 that has a trouble reading HDDs
You need a new hard drive or reformat the one you have with a laptop or PC. Controll Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management (on left)
Hook up the hard drive with an external USB case ($5 on eBay). Right click on left side and initialize. When that is finished, right click in the middle of that hard disk (where it says --GB unallocated) and click on format. You need to for mat with NTFS first then follow the steps again to format it in FAT. When thats done, re-install the hard drive into the case and reattach to the Xbox and it should be good to go!! Good luck and happy gaming!!!
