I have seen this before, if your able to call sony and get a support ticket under warranty id do so if not first try this 1. turn off system completely (this means the switch on the back)
2. hold touch sensitive reset button down till you hear 3 beeps, than let go.
3. hold down touch sensitive reset button until you hear 2 beeps and a double beep.
4. follow on screen directions, choose what option you want (i pick 3, it
seems to work the best)
5. follow on screen directions

here is video showing how to fix it watch the video and attempt the steps.
But if this doesnt work it means most likely that the hard drive has failed. If it were corrupted it would ask you to hit x to restore the device. But this is a sure sign of a failed/failing harddrive on the ps3. Let me know if this works or not and i will help assist you from there. If this assisted you please let me know and feel free to rate the solution. Thanks and have a great day and good luck.

My PS3 says the Harddisk is corruptted. How do I


you can try reformatting it?
you can send it back to the supplier or if out of warranty buy a new hard drive. You will need a 2.5" sata drive and it slots in from the left hand side really easy. buy what ever hard drive size you like, the system will format it and set it up for use

PS3 not recognizing my portable Hard drive


Make sure that the file system on the harddisk in FAT32, other file systems are not suported by the PS3.
If the file system is not FAT32, the ps3 won't even try to read the disk.

You should reformat your harddisk into fat32, use google to findt a tool that can do the formatting for you becouse windows xp and up are only supporting
formating in fat32 up to 40GB.

Succes.

How do i fix the cannot find the correct hard disk problem in my PS3


Test you console with another harddisk to see if it detects the harddisk.

Also try a low level format on the harddisk with a pc so to ensure that there
is nothing left on the harddisk, when reinserted in the ps3, the ps3 needs
to fomat the harddisk, quick fomat will be enoug.
If the original harddisk is still not detected, then your harddisk is defective
and needs to be replaced, if the console also doen't detect the new harddisk then your ps3 needs to return to Sony because the sata controller on the motherboard of your ps3 is defective.

I cant save sim city 2000 on my ps3


Make room free on your ps3's harddisk, this is where al data on your ps3 is stored.
Some games install alot game data, resulting in a harddisk thats is full.
Remove game data from games that you're not planning to play any more soon.

My playstation3 says harddisk not found on the console


You will have to either install a new HDD or call sony ( look under the contact us info on the ps3 website) and have it repaired. You will have to get them to send you a box and then send it to them. Hopefully you are under warranty, otherwise it will cost approx $180
