PS3 not recognizing my portable Hard drive


Make sure that the file system on the harddisk in FAT32, other file systems are not suported by the PS3.
If the file system is not FAT32, the ps3 won't even try to read the disk.

You should reformat your harddisk into fat32, use google to findt a tool that can do the formatting for you becouse windows xp and up are only supporting
formating in fat32 up to 40GB.

Succes.

My ps3 wont turn on


Alright you need to put your ps3 in what is called "safe mode". First make sure there is no disc in the ps3, then turn off the ps3 in the back(main power switch), turn that switch back on, then hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 3 beeps, then let go, the light will be red, hold the power button again and you will hear 2 beep then a quick double beep, let go of power button and the light should stay green. A menu will appear, try all option working your way up from option 1 until it works. If you go through all 6 option and you are still having issues call 1-800-345-7669 to have your ps3 serviced

PS3 40GB stopped reading discs after 15 months!


I think this might be hardrive failure, if so, you need to send it to sony to get it fixed

PS3 Issue


the best bet for you is to ask Sony for service,it looks like the console is having major hardware issues..the only other option is to do a reset but you will lose all data..(u can back up though)
