Its telling me the hard disc is corrupt and is reloading it but it doesn't fix it and takes ages but is the same

Your hard drive has a problem and needs to be formatted. this has happened to me twice already but not with the original hard drive that came with the ps3, I changed mine to a 500 gig drive which had the problems.

the bad news is that you have lost everything that you saved onto the drive and need to reformat and reinstall the ps3 operating system.

If you go through the system settings there is an option to format the drive. Do that.
Then you need to get a USB flash drive, and follow the steps below

Download the update and save the file to a compatible storage device such as Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, a USB or PSP.

Before starting, use your PC to create a folder named "PS3" in the storage media or USB. In this folder, create a folder named "UPDATE" (the folder name is case sensitive and must appear in capital letters). Once the UPDATE folder is created, download and store the update for PS3 system software.

Once the update saved, remove the storage media and connect to your PS3 via the slots under the slot cover, or USB, depending on the storage medium used.

Once the storage media connected, go to Settings on the home menu of the PS3, select System Update, then update via Storage Media. Select the storage media connected to the PS3 installs the update data stored there.

Good luck.

Advantages and disadvantages of monsoons


It's got a Blu-Ray drive, which thanks to console firmware updates will be the most updated and best Blu-Ray player on the market.

The fact it uses Blu-Ray, bigger space for more content, better graphics and better audio.

Playstation Network. Being able to download demos, wallpapers, trailers and things like that without having to subscribe or pay for it. Unlike Xbox Live, all PS3's can do the same stuff online and you don't need to pay just for extra features.

It doesn't use a point system. Paying for things by points (with XBL and the Wii Shop) can easily be be overpaying for something. It's easier to buy something for £5 rather than paying for something for like 800 points and realising you paid £7.50 for something (just an example, I have no idea if 800 points means 7.50 for any points system).

Added media support (for america at the moment) so it means you can download movie and television shows (like the PS3 version of Itunes)

It's got built in wifi.

It's got the ability to run the Linux OS so it can double as a PC, but thanks to the console being able to run different sorts of media it's also a complete media player.

It's being turned into the PlayTV device, with the ability to play games while the console records television, or watch one television show while another records. (UK and Australia only at the moment)

PSP connectivity. Allows the PSP to interact with some games, but also allows remote access to your PS3 from anywhere and also thanks to the PlayTV device you'd be able to watch live and recorded TV (by remotely accessing your PSP).

Folding@home allows the PS3 to help work on learning how diseases work so cures can be found, so any PS3 can be turned into a part of a bigger chain that creates essentially a super computer.


It's expensive.

Sony's inconsistency with keeping a single model on the market, but constanly working around finding ways to make the console cheaper to make but without actually dropping the price (so they limit the loss they get from each sold).

No backwards compatibility. Sony seem more interested in keeping the PS2 on the market in what seems to be an excuse not to give PS3's PS2 playback.

No PSN Prepaid cards. They are extremely hard to get so if you don't have a credit card you can't buy anything.

If you have a usb memory stick, or a cd/dvd burner, you can download the update and transfer it to your ps3 that way. If you need the steps just send me a comment and I will guide you through the process. I aim to be very helpful, just let me know what you need.

Prob. with psp

It happens to mainly PSP-1001 Series. This error has nothing to do with your battery, ms duo, etc. You can try updating your firmware but the best thing to do is call Sony and they will swap it under warranty.

Psp connection...

I dont have ps3, but are you trying to connect thru wifi? if you have a usb cable, i always found it best to download the update off the psp website and transfer it to your psp, then run the update off it. that would be my suggestion, i think you can also connect your psp to your ps3 (lucky bugger) thru usb aswell, so thats what i suggest you do.

Pare psp to ps3

make sure your router doesnt have an access list! if it does then you need to put the psp's mac address in the router access list. you will find the MAC Address under system settings and system information in the psp.

Cant upgrade psp

Here's what you can do:

1. Connect your PSP to your PC.
2. Check if the proper folders are on it's Memory Stick. There is
a folder called PSP which had the following folders


3. The folder you need is GAME. Go in there and create a subfolder called UPDATE.

4. Go to

5. Look for your local site.

6. Look in the PSP section for firmware updates. Here's the link for the most recent firmware update for the USA.
[PSP Firmware 3.80]

* If you need other regional firmware you'll need to look for it yourself or tell me where you from.

7. Download the file in the above link to a convenient place such as your desktop. Then copy it to the recently created UPDATE folder.

8. Safely disconnect your PSP.

9. Start up your PSP and go to the Game section of it, select Memory Stick. You should now see the file.

10. Open the file by pressing X. The update procedure starts. Be sure to follow the on screen instructions.

If you want to read these steps over again, click this link:
[Updating PSP via PC]

Warning: do not use firmware other then placed on Sony PlayStation's official site. For it might damage your system and it will never boot again. Also make sure the battery is fully charged (a charge of 50% will not do, the update utilty won't allow the update). Since it can take an few minutes you best connect it to it's power supply.

NEVER interupt an update by shutting your unit down, removing battery, removing stick, removing power. The damage done is not covered by Sony's warranty.

About the issue for the connection with your PS3 unit. It's true, you need one of the most recent firmwares.

I hope this helped you out, please rate my solution.
