SOURCE: new hard drive on ps3
You're almost there Robert.
What the PS3 is asking for is this:
PS3 Firmware 2.60
You've got to download it and then place it into two folders like this on an external hard drive or thumbdrive or cd if that's all you got.
If you look at the instructions you'll see what I'm talking about. Make sure the folder names are all capitalised or else it won't work.
Once you have this in place press START and SELECT on the controllers and it will allow you to format the hard drive.
Let me know if you get stuck or have any more questions.
Best of luck!

SOURCE: My 60 GB PS3 wont run PS2 games
Actually only 60GB PS3s supports PS2 games. But It requires particular firmware. In first instance try updating your system, then dissable the disc autoload function, insert PS2 game, and look at the game section if your soft will recognise it. If yes just try to play

Enter Safe Mode and select "Restore File System". "Restore File System" will attempt to repair damaged files on the hard drive. If this does not work, try the next step.
2. Rebuild Database
Enter Safe Mode and select "Rebuild Data Base". "Rebuild Data Base" will erase messages, playlists, changes made on [Information] screens, trimming information for pictures in [Photo], video thumbnails, video playback history and video resume information. Then attempt to rebuild the PlayStation 3 database. The content that is erased will not be recoverable. If this doesn't work, try the next step.
3. Restore PS3 System
Please note this will erase all content on the hard drive and will not be recoverable.
Enter Safe Mode and select "Restore PS3 System". "Restore PS3 System" will restore the default settings and will format the hard drive. If this doesn't work, try the next step.
4. Re-seat the hard drive
If you have replaced the hard drive in the PlayStation 3, make sure it was installed properly. If the hard drive is not seated correctly, it may cause problems.
5. Try another hard drive (if possible)
There may be an issue with the hard drive that is installed. Try replacing the hard drive with another one.
