SOURCE: ps3 hard drive corrupted??

Had the same problem. I removed my HDD and reformatted it with my PC
using a SATA 2.5 USB hard disk caddy (you can get one at Best Buy). Had to do it 's twice but it worked so far.

Just keep clicking "OK". I think it's restoring each of your save files one by one. I've had the same problem recently, but after a while it will just start up again with all your wonderful data restored to its former glory.

This problem always happen when you switch off your console while it is saving data or reading data from the HDD, so your HDD file system damaged, in order to solve this problem you need an external SATA 2.5 hard disk case, extract your PS3 hard drive and insert it in the SATA 2.5 case, plug your hard disk to a computer, you will find that the whale hard disk is unallocated, so format it with FAT32 or NTFS using your computer, after that return your hard disk to your PS3 console, now, your PS3 console will recognize it, and it will ask you to format it, say YES!!... congratulation your PS3 console is working now

BUT REMEMBER THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA IN THE HARD DISK INCLUDING YOUR SAVES, IMAGES, MOVIES AND ALL YOUR STUFF


If the above solution does not work you would have to buy a new HDD for your PS3

SOURCE: On our PS3 corrupt data message

Replace the hard drive as the data may be in a bad sector. I would suggest you use the sony method of carrying this out and not doing it yourself as it can viod the warranty or if you want to just purchase another hard drive.

the data is in a bad area of the disk and thus cannot be recovered. Now you can try something cleaver by take out the hard drive and run spinright on it you can get spin right at www.grc.com now i know for a fact spin right does repair corupted data by moving it out of the bad sector.

Or

Replace the disc itself these people at www.videogamerepair.com witch I found in our directory does save this kinda stuff.

So your pretty much have two choices here.

Thanks and I do hope this was Very Helpful to you!

Hello,

Put your PS3 in Standby Mode. The first thing your going to want to know is your model number. It can be found on the back panel of the PS3 on the serial number label, and it will begin with CECH. Example - Serial: XXXXXXXXXXXX-CECHXXX -

For models: CECHA01, BO1, E01, E01MG, G01, H01, H01MG, K01, LO1, AND P01, it will have a power switch on the back. Flip it off then back on and you will have a solid red indicator light on the front.

For models: CECH-2001A and 2001B, press the power button on the front until the indicator light turns red. If all else fails unplug the power cord and plug it back

Time to enter Safe Mode. Press and hold your finger over the power button on the front until you hear three beeps and the indicator light goes back to red. Then release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds the third and final beep will sound then the indicator light will return to red.)

Press and hold your finger over the power button again until you hear a quick double beep. The release the button. (The second you touch it you will hear a beep, that's the first beep. Five seconds later a second beep, another five seconds you will hear the double beep.)

You will then see this screen. "Connect the controller with the USB cable, then press the PS button".

Connect the USB cable to the USB port on the front of your PS3 and the top of your game controller, (between the left and right bumpers). Then Press the PS button in the center of the controller.

You will then see this screen. -REMINDER: -BY DOING THE FOLLOWING ALL OF YOUR DATA ON YOUR PS3 WILL BE LOST, YOUR ONLINE STATS ARE ON THE NETWORK SO YOU WILL GET THAT STUFF BACK, INCLUDING GAMES AND ADDONS YOU BOUGHT FROM THE PSN.-

Select option number 5. (Restore PS3 System). Then select yes to perform step. You will then see this screen. "The hard disk's file system is corrupt and will be restored.

The PS3 will then restart. You will see many different languages, all that is is saying is, "Connect the controller with the USB cable, then press the PS button". Press the PS button and set your settings when it finishes it will start up and its fixed!

I wish you good luck.

  • Turn off the PS3 console, if it isn't already.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Connect your controller to the console with the USB cable when prompted to do so.Turn on the controller. You will now have access to the PS3 recovery menu.Select option three which states "Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files." This option will identify and correct and corrupt files. Your PS3 should now be fixed. If this option doesn't fix your problems, you'll want to do a complete system restore and follow the next step.Turn off the PS3 console by holding down the power button.Press and hold the power button on the console as it powers on, and then powers off again.Press and hold the power button a second time until you hear two consecutive beeps. If your console powers down before you hear the second beep, try holding down the power button again. It should work during the second cycle.Select option 5 which states "Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch." Be aware that performing a complete system restore will cause all data on the hard drive to be lost. This option restores the PS3 back to its original factory condition.

    Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


    hey ash,

    ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

    as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

    when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

    I have the same problem as mark&michelle..PS3 says cannot start.Correct hard disk not found.Changed hard drive,same thing..No external sata.No warranty.Need help.Please.Thanks


    Ok try these steps, hopefully it will sort it but if it doesn't reply here and I will assist you some more.
    Step 1. Turn the PS3 into standby mode (red light on)
    Step 2. Press and hold the power button, it will beep as soon as you press it, beep again 5 seconds later then beep once more and turn off. Release the power button.
    Step 3. Again press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then 5 seconds later, then it will do 2 quick beeps together. Let go of the power button when you hear these 2 quick beeps.
    Step 4. The PS3 will ask you to connect a controller using a USB cable and press the PS button. Do this and a menu will appear.
    Step 5. Select option 3 of the menu, "Restore File System"
    Step 6. The PS3 will say "Preparing..Please Wait" and then restart. Let it do its thing, you may see a message about corrupt data on the hard drive, just agree and continue with what it was doing. You may lose save game data, it really is hit and miss with this method.

    Hopefully when the hard drive file system has been restored you should have a fully working PS3 again but if you don't, post here and I will try and assist you some more.

    Thank you for using FixYa

    here's some ideas:
    ________________________

    I fixed my ps3!! All you need is a friend with a ps3!! Swap the hdd's and boot up your friends ps3, format the hdd, put it back in your ps3 and you may need to format it again.
    _______________________________________________________


    I tried to fix my friend's PS3 HDD that way in mine...it still gave an error every time he booted up his PS3. At that point I stuck the PS3 HDD in my laptop, booted from a Windows CD and fully formatted it that way...stuck it back in his machine...used it to format....finally got his stuff going. Took a little extra time but no problems since.

    Corrupted data


    It's possible that you're turning off the ps3 while it's saving, corrupting the save data.
    Make sure when you turn off the ps3 it's not in the process of saving.
    Try the above and if you still have no luck it's possible there's an issue with your ps3's hard drive, have you had any problems with any other games?

    Also, if the problem persists, try deleting the MW2 gamedata, located under gamedata on the ps3's menu.
    Best of luck to you.
