My PS3 hard drive is corrupted. How do I get the PS3 software in the new hard drive?


What do you mean? if you mean that you have a new hard drive, then just install it where the old one is and continue normal operation. obviously, you will not have any data stored on the old drive. If your new drive is corrupt, you are SOL, as you can't "uncorrupt" corrupted data. Actually, i think you can, but it is a time consuming, cost-prhibitive procedure.

Its telling me the hard disc is corrupt and is reloading it but it doesn't fix it and takes ages but is the same


Your hard drive has a problem and needs to be formatted. this has happened to me twice already but not with the original hard drive that came with the ps3, I changed mine to a 500 gig drive which had the problems.

the bad news is that you have lost everything that you saved onto the drive and need to reformat and reinstall the ps3 operating system.

If you go through the system settings there is an option to format the drive. Do that.
Then you need to get a USB flash drive, and follow the steps below

Download the update and save the file to a compatible storage device such as Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, a USB or PSP.

Before starting, use your PC to create a folder named "PS3" in the storage media or USB. In this folder, create a folder named "UPDATE" (the folder name is case sensitive and must appear in capital letters). Once the UPDATE folder is created, download and store the update for PS3 system software.

Once the update saved, remove the storage media and connect to your PS3 via the slots under the slot cover, or USB, depending on the storage medium used.

Once the storage media connected, go to Settings on the home menu of the PS3, select System Update, then update via Storage Media. Select the storage media connected to the PS3 installs the update data stored there.

Good luck.

The pix and sound don't work


I just discovered an additional fix to this problem last night. I removed the hard drive from the PS3 and placed another harddrive in its place. This gave me a dialog box that stated the Operating System was corrupt and that I needed to install a software update. I downloaded the software update from Sony's website and placed it on a USB drive and place my old hard drive back into the system. After the update the PS3 came back to life. If you don't have an additional HD (hard drive) try just removing the hard drive and booting it up without it. Turn it off and put the HD back in place and the dialog should appear. Unfortunately you will lose all of the data saved on your HD unless you can back it up with a HD enclosure. I hope this helps and good luck.

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.

Saying hard disk corrupt then restores but game freezes


Is this a game on your hard drive or a CD? If it is on your hard drive then it quite possibly had a bad download OR your hard drive is on its last leg.
