When i try to download it says connect storage media at save destination


It sounds to me like you either have a full Hard drive, or need to format your hard drive, Did you install a new hard drive recently?

The hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored. It restores but when the playstation restarts it says it again and restores again. Then it all happens again.


Hi alexcarver20!

Try reformatting your hardrive again to a FAT32 format. To do so, when your ps3 console is turned off remove the hard-drive and connect it to a PC. Then use this software: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm to format it to a FAT32 format and after that connect it back into the PS3.

Warning: This will result in the loss of all data on your hard-drive but it's the only chance of using that hard-drive again.

Hope this helped!

HI, PLAYSTATION 3 SAYS HARD DRIVE CORRUPTED DOES


dtub

If you are getting the corrupted hard drive message and the Playstation 3's repair does not repair the drive then you may need to format the drive with a computer. The link below will help you do this. Note if you still have trouble with the drive then you may need to replace the drive as it is having hardware problems.

The consol turns on but will not go to the menu,


It sounds like a hard drive issue. If your system can't read your hard drive it will stay on the blue Playstation screen. After a few minutes it will say it cant load from the hard drive on the screen. Try putting your hard drive in a different machine and see if it boots up.
