You might check out the Informative article at Ezinearticles.com to fix the freezing problem as the article gives the information about a DIY guide, (though i don't remember the name of the site) but you can check the article from http://ezinearticles.com/?Xbox-360-Freezing-Fix&id=1527369

Im Trying To Reformat My Hard Drive And It Freezes Up At 4 Percent Which It Will Not Go Further


From your description hard drive disc is heavly worn, one option you can try is a low level format, this may work and if it does it will buy you more time. If this fails it will finish your hard drive.

How to fix a bad hard drive.


If you have a hard drive that crashed and can't live with the thought of starting over .. there is one last thing you can do to get your info from the disk!!

FREEZE IT... YES.. i said to put your comp. hard drive in the freezer...

First you need a ESD bag (antistatic bag) You are going to need a new hard drive anyways. When you get your new hard drive. it will come with a ESD bag over it..

Put the old hard drive in the bag...
Put the new drive in your comp.
Put the hard drive in the freezer over night..
24hours in the freezer = about 30mins run time... might get more time out of it if you freeze it longer but ... you will just have to test it

put the hard drive in and test it... if it works ( like it should ) you can use the old hard drive as a backup and keep freezing it to get the info off.

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.

Toshiba hard drive wont boot.


This could be the hard drive failure everyone doesn't want to see. If there are files on this drive that you have to have, I would quit trying to do anything with it till you can attempt to recover them. When a drive starts to fail there are some things you can do to get the files off before it melts down but the more you mess with it the less the chance that you can do that. You need someone with a 2.5 to 3.5 hard drive adapter that can boot up with this drive as a slave and get your files off of it that you need to save. Then you can put it back in the system and see if you can get it to work again. If the computer has trouble reading from the 2.5 in drive, shut it down and put it in the freezer for an hour and freeze the drive. this makes all the parts contract and become tighter and possibly help you read the drive again. If it reads then quits again then re-freeze it. Mean time you can go buy a new hard drive or get RMA numbers to send that one back on warranty. Hope this helps.

Ive done most all i can do...


if you bought this new ti shouldn't really be doing this, I would take it back, but however, if it isn't playing anything at all and it isn't new try restoring it to factory default.

To bring the PS3 to factory settings, you need to use the reset to facorty deafults in the system settings menu, not the restore system under backupdefaults.

you will lose all data because it will fomat the hard drive. I think this might be your best option.

Good luck I hope this works

Installation


The hard drive will automatically install you do not need to install a driver. I'm guessing this is a hard drive in addition to the hard drive that vista is running on? If so you probably need to format the hard drive to gain access to it. Click the windows button, and in the search field type compmgmt.msc and hit enter. Click continue when the UAC pops up. Now inside the Computer Management Console find and click on Storage and then Disk Management. On the bottom portion look for your new hard drive. Most likely it will have a black colored stripe and say UNALLOCATED. This will explain how to do the rest Yes that article is for XP but the one in Vista is pretty much the same.
