My ps3's data got corrupted and it said i could restore it.i did, but now my online friends list is gone and so is my other data!please help me!


Unfortunately, if you did a full system restore without backing up your data, it's gone. Sorry, man. However, if you sign into your PSN account, you'll still have your trophies. I know it's not much. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

You need to RESTORE FILE SYSTEM on your ps3.
Here is how you can do it.

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%.

Good evening when I start my ps3 with no disc in it it freezes on the begining screen cannot move to ps3 system update or anything to figure out what the issue is I have an original ps3 120gb it stated I...


Sorry, i dont have a solution for the freezing, but, as for freeing up some space; If you have alot off music of videos on there delete them and run them off of a portable USB device (USB key works, but so does and iPod). Do the same with music. Another solution is to delete some of your saved game files. Under the games section on the XMB, there is something called game data or similar to that. Delete some of the files from games you don't play anymore. Also delete game demos you have finished with. These will be located in the very bottom folder under Games. Freeing up some hardrive space may also help with your freezing problem.

Hope this helps,
- Matt

Note - To delete, press triangle and select delete.

Ps3 not reading any disc


what you have to do is turn it on and go on to settings. then format the system and wait for it to reset then start it up again and try it. (back up your info first!)
if that doesnt work ring sony and state the problem they should send you a new or refurbished ps3. but you'll need it in warrenty.

Data support


IF the sandisk is not formatted as Fat32 then the new PS3s will not recognize it. To format to fat32 follow these steps:
1. Transfer all the data onto a PC or another thumb drive.

2. go to START, CONTROL PANEL, ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS, COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, and select DISK MANAGER on the left hand side options. Select the external drive and read the "File System" type. If it says "NTFS", right click the disk and select "Delete Partition".

3. Reformat the drive as FAT32

4. Once you are SURE the partition is FAT32, open "My Computer" and double-click on your empty external hard drive. Now, you will want to create a folder system identical to that on the Playstation 3. Right click to create a new folder and name the first folder "Photo". Do this for "Music", "Video" and "Game". When you are finished, you should have 4 folders total in the hard drive. Each folder should (at this point) be empty.

5. Now transfer your saved information into the correct folders, safely remove the drive, and you are ready to go.
