How to remove the hard drive on a Playstation 3 Slim

Removing the hard drive on the PS3 Slim is simular to removing the hard drive on an original PS3, however the drive is in a different location.

Note if you are upgrading PS3 hard drive you will need to back up your data first so that you are able to put your files back onto the new hard drive.


1. Make sure you have all your cables unplugged from the PS3.

2. Turn the PS3 upside and locate the hard drive access door (it will be at the front of the system next to the small info sticker).

3. Ether with your finger nail or a small screw driver lift up the cover.

4. Next carefully unscrew the blue screw. Note you will want to make sure you get the right size phillips head to make sure you do not strip out the screw head. On the few systems I have seen a PH1 head you be the right size you need.

5. After you have the screw removed you will want to slide the hard drive cover to the right to expose the hard drive.

6. Next pull down on the lever and pull strait back in the drive caddy to remove it from the PS3.

If you have remove the drive to upgrade the drive you will want to unscrew the drive from the caddy and install your new drive.

If you have removed to corrupted data on the hard drive the link below will walk you through formatting the hard drive on your computer just skip to step 4 as the first steps are for removing the hard drive from the original PS3.

Ps3 slim says hard drive corrupted but wont work?


You will need to update the hard drive. You have to go to playstations website and find the update for your ps3 dashboard you can put it on a memory stick make sure to save it just how sony suggests. Then you put the memory stick in the ps3 and it will update your hard drive and it should work. Fixxed several with the same problems that way. Hope this helps. If you need help finding the update just let me know.

If you are getting the corrupted drive message this means that you have corrupted data on your hard drive. The link below will help you address this. If you still have trouble you may need to replace the hard drive.

Note the link below I made is based off the original PS3 but everything still applies. If you need the actual physical steps I just got access to a Slim and will be updating the steps this weekend. Also with your Slim it should be in warranty so if the hard drive is bad I would contact Sony's techsupport about getting it replaced.

Help brand new ps3 hard drive corrupted. Im not taking the hardrive out, HELL NO!


I would return for replacement if it is new. Or send to sony would be under warranty if under 1 year. If not warrantied try to format the hard drive.Replace hard drie if it is older style PS3 and not the new slim PS3. I think the hard drive is built in and cannot be removed. If is a slim, your best bet is the warranty. Good Luck.

My ps3 tells me the hard disk is corrupted


Sounds like you might need a new hard drive. You could try to disconnect it and reconnecting it, but usually it does not fix the problem. just remember you need a 2.5 sata hard drive (might be a good thing, if you ever wanted more hard drive space).
