Try to RESTORE FILE SYSTEM on your ps3.
Follow this guide,

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when it turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

My iomega 1tb hard drive reads on a laptop but i cant get it to load or even come up on my playstatin 3 what can i do


If the HD is using NTFS that is why, because PS3 and Xbox360 only read FAT32/16. So make FAT32 partitions for use on your ps3

How do I get it to work on my Ps3


Hi Damian, if you can't read any file from it it's because it's probably format as NTFS. You have to format it as FAT32 otherwise PS3 won't read anything from it.
Also, you have to create two partitions on it because PS3 won't read anything bigger than 512 GB. When you got it to fat32 go to MOVIE, PHOTO or MUSIC and hit the triangle button in order to display your files.

My PS3 won't read the games or DVD's. Is the hard drive frozen or broken? My Son is very diappointed that he will lose all his game history? Can anyone help?


if the ps3 wont read DISC games the BD drive in the ps3 is bad and needs to be replaced. I would suggest you call Sony and have them replace the drive if the ps3 is still under warranty.

since the BD discs are read only and nothing is stored on them like game saves, your son wont lose any saves he has becasue they are stored on the ps3 hard drive.

i would suggest if you do send the console to sony i would back up the contents of the drive just incase they decide to wipe it clean.

you can perform a backup from the setting menus on the ps3.

PS3 won't read any games but reads DVD movies, What's the problem


back up the hard drive then reset the ps3 back to the factory settings. then down load ver 2.60. If it still does not work you have a laser issue or board issue with the blu-ray drive.
