If that's the case there is a good possibility that your PS3's hard drive is developing bad sectors. You can take it out and test it on a PC given that you have a good hard drive test utility such as Tufftest and that you have a SATA capable system not to mention feeling comfortable performing the tasks. Also you can try to replace the hard drive with a new one, it uses standard 2.5 inch SATA laptop hard drive.

Here's a quick guide to replace an existing hard drive.

When I turn my PS3 on, it says hard disk file system is corrupted and will be restored, I press OK, it gets all the way to 100%, then it restarts and tells me the same thing. What do I do?


Your HARD DRIVE (aka: Hard Disk), located on the left side of the unit, has crashed. You will need to replace the HD.

When you replace your hard drive, you will need to have the latest firmware on a

usb stick. Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Once prompted by your system you will need to insert the usb stick into the

PS3. Good luck..



You will need 2.5" Sata Hard Drive.

Corrupt hardhrive msg comes up and can not do anything


Follow these steps to try and bring your hard drive back to life :-

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn off. When the console turns off please let go of the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, then beep 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. When you hear these 2 quick beeps let go of the power button.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a PS3 connector via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then go onto the next step.

Step 5. A menu will then load. Choose option 3 "Restore File System". The PS3 will restart and may report that your hard drive is corrupt, ignore this and click on "OK" to continue. Let the PS3 do its thing and hopefully when it restarts all will be well again.

If this procedure does not work, follow steps 1-4 again but on step 5 choose option 4. If this does not work try again but with option 5.

If none of these procedures work then I am afraid it looks like your hard drive may have become faulty. This will mean you will have to purchase a new one.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

My ps3 tells me the hard disk is corrupted


Sounds like you might need a new hard drive. You could try to disconnect it and reconnecting it, but usually it does not fix the problem. just remember you need a 2.5 sata hard drive (might be a good thing, if you ever wanted more hard drive space).

Hard Drive Corrupted?


pkennedy624

If you are getting the corrupted drive message and the built in PS3 options are fixing the drive then you will have to pull the drive and format it externally with a computer. The link below will help you do this.
