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
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)
If you are getting the corrupted drive message on your Playstation 3 this means you have corrupted data on your hard drive. The link below will help you fix the problem with the corrupted data. Note if you still have trouble then you will need to replace the hard drive as there is something wrong with it.
There is an alternate way to restore your HDD. Turn off your system and when u see the red light, hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 4 beeps (1 alone, 1 alone, 2 together). It usually works on second try. it should show a screen and say hook up controller with a usb cord. Then it should show i think 6 options. Choose the restore option. it should work.
Hope it works and wish you all the best! P.S.- I just got the 80010514 error on my ps3 and my ps3 games dont work anymore :(
Ok do not worry this may mean two things crached hard drive or a corrupted hard drive all you have to do is turn it on but let the red ligth be on turn it on do not remove your finger from the button until it go's off again turn it on again keep your finger until it makes a sound but still do not remover your finger untill it makes two sounds after eachouther take your finger of fast nou a screen will apear say restore sestem untill your ps3 works again it take 1-4 trys and if nothing happens you must format it.HOPE I WAS USEFULL PLZZ RATE ME AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELS EMAIL ME TO firstname.lastname@example.org I DO PS1,2,3,DVD PLAYERS AND PC sorry for my spelling i am only 13 and i amafrikaans BUT PLZZZ RATE ME
i wonder if u have changed the ps3 hard disk or it's the original toshiba hard disk that comes in the ps3 ?? so if it's a new one u may haven't connected it right n if it's the original one u can check on it by removing the plastic part at the bottom of the ps3 n try to check on it
