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.

Hard disk corruption. says press x to resore but wont load past 18%


Try this:

turn on ps3 press x to restore on 0 % quickly pull out hdd. then wait may take up to an hour a message will come up to formate hdd. put hdd back in and press yes to format this process worked with in seconds for me but can take longer. it does work but you will lose all saved stuff but online stats will still be on the system. good luck hope it works for u to.

or this:
New fix (possibly), and it doesn't take a laptop or a friend's PS3 to do.

Simply remove the hard drive from your PS3, and turn on the console. It should display a screen saying the hard drive will need to be reformatted. Then, plug the hard drive back into your PS3, and allow it to reformat. Your save game data will be erased, but you should be able to use your PS3 again.
_________________________________________________________

whoever has a problem withe their ps3 needing to be reformatted just take out your hdd when the restore comes up, then press x, it will take a will before the ps3 tells u to insert a hdd to be formatted (took me 12 minutes)

good luck

I have a corrupted file on my ps3 and it trys to repair it self after 30 seconds.it goes right back to the same screen. HELP!!!


Your problem may be more widespread than just that one file. The file system on your hard drive may be corrupt. You can try to reformat the entire hard drive in an attempt to remove all the errors in the PS3 data, or you can buy a new hard drive. You may have to replace the hard drive if the hard drive is failing, and therefore not reading or writing data properly.

To reformat the drive, in the PS3 menu:
NOTE: This will erase everything you saved on the hard drive.

1) Go to the Settings menu, then select System Settings.
2) Select Format Utility, then select Format Hard Disk.
3) Select Quick Format

To replace the Hard Drive, buy any 2.5 inch notebook hard drive that has a serial ATA connection. Then remove the old hard drive from the left side of the PS3 and install the new hard drive.

After installing the new Hard Drive you will need to format the drive. When you turn on the PS3, you will see onscreen instructions to help you with this.

The hard disks file system is corrupted.


If you can still access the PS3 menu, then reformat your hard drive by going to:

Settings > System Settings > Format Utility > Format Hard Disk

If you cannot, then you can try:
1) Remove the Hard drive, connect it to a PC and reformat it.
2) Download the latest PS3 operating system from the Playstation website and store it on a USB drive. Then insert the USB drive into the PS3 and start the PS3, and then install the operating system from the USB.

Ps3 continously restoring hard drive


there are bad sectors on the hard drive which is why it keeps restoring cause it can never read all the info properly.

My suggestion would be to get a new 80 gig hard drive, put it in there, reformat it and youll have a great working system.

40G PS3 system corrupted


Hello. If the hard drive will not reformat inside the PS3 when you press X, then you will need to remove it and reformat it on a PC using an external device or replace the hard drive. Thanks.

Ps3 problem


I have looked around for you and the only solution that seems to work for a lot of people is to take the hard drive out, put it into another ps3 (friends etc..) and reformat it, then replace it into your system and it will ask you to reformat it again then all should be well. Other to that you can always buy a new hard drive and replace the old one.

I hope this helps

"the hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored"


           Ok, it appears that your hard drive in your PS3 is corrupt and needs to be reformatted. You can get an external hard drive enclosure and do it yourself. You would have to take the hard drive out of your PS3 and put it in the external hard drive enclosure and plug that into a computer with the supplied USB cable and format it. From what I'm reading out there, the external hard drive enclosure has to be for SATA 2.5" hard drive.             You could probably replace the hard drive with a larger one just as easy if you wanted to. If you don't feel comfortable with any of this, then its probably repair shop time. I hope this helps.moreover,,Use your recovery disc to reinstall your operating system. This should clean up your hard drive and restore any missing or corrupt files.
