Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My playstation 3 whenever turned on reads "corrupt data hard-drive file, please press x to restore" there is no option menu or cross bar, so i have to press x. Once it restores it turns back on again with the same message. I'm stuck, it's thee 60 gig model which is now discontinued, eb games and sony are putting me on a waiting list to get a new one but it's gonna take weeks. I'm pretty sure it's a problem with the HDD and i've heard that it is reprogrammable or fixable.
Your help is really appreciated
There are three possible solutions. You can take back the playstation. Try removing the hard-drive from the side, undo the cap unscrew the middle screw from the hard-drive, move the drive to the left and pull it out. When out try cleaning it off and leaving it out for about 10 minutes then reinserting it. Make sure the playstation is unplugged for all these steps. Or you can re programer reformat the HDD. Generally the reason for this problem occurring is when you turn off the system while it's saving. You reformat you need an external hard-drive and some free time. Send me a message for further info on reformatting.
