Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???

I've had my ps3 since x-mas and now it's saying hard disk files system is corrupted, will be destroyed. I can't even play my games now. What does this mean? How can I fix it? PS3. Inserted newly-bought PS2 game-done before w/other PS2 games OK, so have others, and Sony says OK. (Later ran disc in my PS2 & worked fine.) Screen read: "Unrecognized format" or "unrecognized disk." Clicked on disc icon that always appears, and screen said: "HARD DISC'S FILE SYSTEM IS CORRUPTED. CLICK HERE TO FORMAT." Clicked, and bar filled 100%, but got same message: "HARD DISK's FILE SYSTEM IS CORRUPTED." ?: Is game data corrupted?-need for college: Major:"3D Computer Animation" Ash

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.

  • Check that the media is inserted correctly.
  • If the storage media is formatted (initialized) on a PC, the PLAYSTATION®3 may not recognize it. After copying the required data to a PC, try reformatting the media on the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • There may be a problem with the media in use. Try using another media that is compatible with the PLAYSTATION®3.
  • Some media may have region or territorial restrictions and may not work with your system. See media packaging for details.
  • Use of certain storage media are available only on the PLAYSTATION®3 60GB model.

Yep chances are the game that you loaded is corrupted try reformating it and reloading the game, if that doesnt help if your product is still within warranty call for support because disc might be corrupted/damage already.

    If you are actually backing up data's prior to installing the game you can restore it. but if not you need to reformat disc and chances are you are going to lost data's.

    If you want to take the risk if a friend has a ps3 you can borrow her hard drive and use it for restoring

    To remove the hard disc take out the plastic cover on the side of the
    playstation 3 with your fingernail, then unscrew the BLUE screw at the
    bottom. Extend the metal handle and pull it to the right, then out, and
    do the same with your friends and you put your hard disc into his
    Playstation and reformat it but its risky though, best thing is to call support for a replacement if within warranty still

    Thanks for using Fixya!!
