Ok try to follow these steps in order to restore your hard disks structure again.

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn off. When the console turns off, release the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, then beep 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. When you hear these 2 quick beeps release the power button.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a PS3 connector via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then go onto the next step.

Step 5. A menu will then load. Choose option 3 "Restore File System". The PS3 will restart and may report that your hard drive is corrupt, ignore this and click on "OK" to continue. Let the PS3 do its thing and hopefully when it restarts all will be well again.

If this procedure does not work, follow steps 1-4 again but on step 5 choose option 4. If this does not work try again but with option 5.

If none of these procedures work then I am afraid it looks like your hard drive may have become faulty. This will mean you will have to purchase a new one.

I hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Your hard drive may have gone bad. Maybe try using a different hard drive. Once you put it in, the system data should install itself.

Keep getting amessage saying hard disc corrupted.


Sounds like your hard drive is so badly faulty that it cannot be restored, in all likelihood you will need a replacement drive.

When i turn on my ps3 it comes up ''hard disc drive is corrupt''


My PS3 has done this before. If it is like mine then all you have to do is wipe all the memory and restart the system which should be one of the options it can give you if you click past the "Hard drive disc is corrupt screen." This can happen because you might of shut down the system by accident when it was saving a game thus the hard drive becomes corrupted. You won't lose any online info but you will lose memory to saved games and thing else that is saved on the HDD like Demo Games. I hope this helps you. If not then I am very sorry and I am sure it will be fixed if not by my advice.

"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.

If you are getting the corrupted drive message and the built in PS3 options are not fixing the drive then you will have to pull the drive and format it externally with a computer. The link below will help you do this.

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.
