Ok, this solution will erase your save games and any other data you have on the hard disk but not your trophies.
Make sure the PS3 is on standby (red light on)
Press and hold the power button.It will beep as soon as you touch it, then beep again 5 seconds later, then beep once more and go back to standby (red light on again).
Press and hold the power button again. It will beep as soon as you press it, beep again 5 seconds later then beep twice quickly. Let go of the power button
The PS3 will then ask you to plug in a controller with a USB cable and press the PS button. After you do this a recovery menu will load.
Choose "Restore file system"
Follow the on screen prompts and hopefully this will sort out your problem

My system won't read no ps3 game but it will read ps2 games and movies


Problem : Your PS3 blueray is corrupted.

Solution : Need to reformat you PS3 hard disk drive and need recovery system disc.

Procedures:

1: take out any disc if any from your 80gb ps3 and properly turn it off.

2: turn power switch off from the back and turn it back on.

3: go to the restore screen. now this is important, press and keep pressing power button on ps3 to turn it on but hold it and wait for 3 beeps till it turns off. now your ps3 will not know u WANA go to the restore screen the first time you try this so do the same step again and it will beep once then it will beep twice repeatedly and your on the reset screen

4: now take your usb cable and do as the screen says, plug ur controller in and press the ps button on the controller and it will then give you 6 options to choose from, YOU WANA GO TO 3 "RESTORE FILE SYSTEM" but hold on there, dont click yes yet.

5: open the hdd(hard drive) thingy on from your ps3 and take off the blue screw that holds it but dont take the hdd out yet.

6: THIS ONE IS IMPORTANT!......you will select yes when it asks if you really want to proceed to restoring file system and after ur tv flickers and pops up the screen saying the files are corrupted and will be fixed and restored pay attention cuz you need to take your hdd out as soon as it begins to do the restore, YOU WANA TAKE OUT UR hdd WHEN THE PROCESS BAR IS ON 0% NOT 1% NOR 2% BUT 0% ZEEEEROOOOOOOO PERCENT(now leave your hdd on a safe place rit now where nothing will happen to it) if YOURE not quick enough your WOUNT catch the bar at 0% it but thats cool cuz you can try again just repeat the first steps.

7: ok now you need patience here, your ps3 will need to stay on for a long time showing the process bar on zero percent and eventually it will pop up another message saying that there was a problem restoring the system files and that you will need to format the hdd but trust me it will take a looooooong time till u get this message, i left it on over nite so idk how long exactly it took but hey idk, maybe it only takes second for u who knows????.....??? ?? ? WHILE YOU WAIT TO GET THIS MESSAGE YOU NEED TO FULLY FORMAT YOUR hdd USING UR LAPTOP OR SOMEONES LAPTOP, IT IS IMPORTANT cuz OTHER WHISE YOU WOUNT BE ABLE TO FULLY FORMAT YOUR PS3 hdd, WELL THE POINT IS, YOU NEED TO DO A FULL AND COMPLETE FORMAT TO IT, USING A COMPUTER, LAPTOP OR NON LAPTOP AS LONG AS YOU CAN ACHIEVE THIS YOURE GOOD TO GO, NOW THIS IS HOW I DID THIS....and dont think, oh well i could just do that using my ps3, trust me, i did that a million times and none of those times worked, i just wasted my time like an idiot =[

8: TURN OFF LAPTOP, now take the hdd out from ur laptop and connect your ps3's hdd on it......(you may need to take the outter metal cover form the hhd to be able to plug it in to the laptop), this is where you need your laptops recovery disc that came with it when u purchased it and if you dont have one then get one or else YOURE **bleep**ed =] .........ok now turn the laptop on and as soon as its turning on, go to the boot menu on your laptop on the first screen it gives you, in my case i had to press the F12 key, could be different for you....now when the other screen wit the boot from options pops up, put ur recovery disc in and when ur done choose to boot computer from disc drive meaning from your recovery disc.

9: ok well now you need to choose to "FULLY FORMAT" your hdd just go for the option or options that seem to take the longest time, if u get an option to fully format and delete all sectors and partitions from the hdd then go for that.....thats the message i got i think or something like that. the process will take up to 5 HOURS remember i said you needed patience, make sure your laptop is plugged in to its charger, you dont want it to turn off while it is doing the format. now go watch tv or something cuz this is gona take a long time, formatting 80gb takes a pretty long while, and if you do this before you go to bed then even better you just get up and start a new day knowing ur ps3 will survive this and u will go back to being happy wit it like before =] yay.

10: ok well now that the format is done and ur laptop says is ok to turn computer off, turn it off, it might do it by itself idk, it DIDNT for me i had to click restart now, ok by this time your ps3 should have given you the message saying that there was a problem doing the file restore and that will need to be formatted, now take off your ps3's hdd from your laptop and plug it back in where it belongs, on your ps3 and once it is in place YOURE good and ready to go, take your ps3 controller and click on YES, format hdd, and then it will format your hdd without problem.
SUCCESS!.......yay try putting in your favorite ps3 game blu ray movie or watever you want to test it with and it should work like it worked for me. remember formatting the hdd wit the ps3 itself WOUNT help you at all, this is the best way to fix your problem...good luck and i hope this also helps other people with this problem...latz and feel free to ask any questions, anyone can.

My PS3's hard disk file system is corrupted


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 :(
