That sounds like a software problem. i would just return it and say it was corrupted when you bought it. if you have a warranty they should take it back no questions asked.

PS3 says ''The hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored'' We press OK and the system says its restoring. When restored it comes up with the same message.


You need to restore your hard drive manually by connecting your hard drive to a computer, once installed you must select the hard drive and format it. once done you must format again but as FAT 32 and Done

My PS3 starts up but then says "The hard disk file


Your HARD DRIVE (aka: Hard Disk), located on the left side of the unit, has crashed. You will need to replace the HD.

When you replace your hard drive, you will need to have the latest firmware on a

usb stick. Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Once prompted by your system you will need to insert the usb stick into the

PS3. Good luck..



You will need 2.5" Sata Hard Drive.

The hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored. I clicked ok to restore system,but system cycles and repeats itself


More than likely the hard drive has bad sectors, that's why it's looping.

Just swap the drive out with ANY 2.5 inch SATA laptop hard drive. They sell 250gb drives from Best Buy for around $50.

Just swap, turn the console back on, and follow the instructions displayed by the PS3 ;)

"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.
