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!!!

SOURCE: PS3 corrupted hard disk

Yes. All you need is a Seagate SATA 2.5" hard drive. It doesn't matter how many GB it has. If you have the 20GB or 60GB model of PS3 for goodness sake keep it!! That model is backwards compatible and will play PS1 and PS2 games. The 40GB unit does not have this luxury. I hope this helps you. Good luck and happy gaming!!

SOURCE: "hard drive disk is corrupted, it will be restored" but it doesnt

hte other guy is right but also you can try removeing the HDD and connecting to yor computer via SATA cables inside the computer, there is also another problem with removing the HDD it may ask you to update the HDD software once you put it back in the ps3 and wont alow you do anyhting again if it does ask you for the update go to the ps3 site and download the lastest update (which is all free) and burn it to a disk

Hi There, when you formatted the hard drive, did you remember to partition the space correctly? If not, run through the process again, and remember to partition it again. If it is saying a corrupt hard drive, it means that the hard drive can't be read. Like trying to read a paper that has been burned in a fire. If the hard drive is corrupt after format, you need to buy a new hard disk, and remember to make sure it is the same kind as the old one.
