External HD isnt recognized by ps3


Hmm, go to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Disk Management. Then look or scroll down right hand panel to find your disk. If it is there you could RIGHT click on it and assign a new drive letter such as Q or R.
If it's not there your external disk could be faulty, the power supply transformer or power cable could be faulty or it could be the USB cable.
If all looks OK you probably need to contact a disk recovery specialist such as DATA365.

Comment: NTFS is a much more stable file system and is much easier to recover after errors. FAT32 is not commonly used now.

PS3 does not read the discs....


Here's two previous posts with similar problems..

This problem does not mean a disk drive2_bing.gif has broke 90% of the time, the most common issue is the ps32_bing.gif files being corrupt. To solve this problem firstly back up the data on your ps3. Go to system settings> backup and follow the appropriate settings,i advise using a usb stick or hard drive to back up your data.
Secondly under system settings go to restore ps3 and follow instructions. This will erase all the data on your ps3 and restore it to its factory default, this will restore all the original ps3 files, it will basically install the ps3 OS again.
After re- installing the ps3 install the latest updates and try your disk again.
If your ps3 now recognizes a disk go back to system setting> backup, select restore previous back up and all your saved data will be imported from the hard disk. Sony2_bing.gif does state that not all saved data can be imported e.g.copy righted content, however i faced no problems and was able to access all saved data including saved games2_bing.gif when restoring.
If this solution does not work contact song for further assistance, if this solution does not work it is likely to be hardware support, usually the lens that reads the disk, sony will instruct you on who to contact to repair the fault machine. When out of warranty their is usually a cost unless it is recognized manufacturing fault.
___________________________________________________

I have the now famouss problem myself and reading about it made me realise that there are a lot of people living this hell. I want to make an official list of player having this problem to see the magnitude of it.

The problem beiing: You played mw2 (or another game) with the latess update installed on your ps3 and at some point it froze. tried pressing the PS button but nothing happened. You had to hold the power button to reset it or resolve to switch the back switch off/on. Only to get this same problem over and over again. you can t play blu ray2_bing.gif on your ps3 and/or get the error 80010514. from time to time it will play those blu ray only to start the whole problem again.

your blu ray lens is not dead.. the problem seems to come from another part. It could be a corrupted SOFTWARE/FIRMWARE caused by Sony's 'Online' Updates.

Ps3 and 1tb hard disk


This one may only have one possible solution.

You probably have heard that the PS3 will support up to a terabyte hard drive. That is true for most of them.

However, depending on the version of PS3, you may have to see if it is possible to flash the BIOS of the PS3. I talked to a Sony representative about the hard drive and it will support a 1 terabyte hard drive.

Contact sony to see if it is possible to flash the PS3 BIOS so it will recognize the drive.

PS3 doesn't recognize Games or Blue-Ray Movies


Laser needs to be replaced. 95% of the time.

You can try: updating firmware
restoring system, and cleaning the laser lens with a q-tip

It almost never works, but you can try.

While playing COD4 the game froze on me and then the screen went black. won't recognize any games but will still play movies and access the browser. when i finally got it to read a disk it gave me an error...


I'd try, firmware update and a system restore, but if that doesn't work it's probably:

A Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

PS3 won't recognize disks after update


You can back up ANYTHING you wish to keep via the backup utility what I'm about to tell you to do will essentially erase your harddrive. After backing up any data you wish to keep, restore your PS3 system and to a FULL ( not quick ) format of your harddrive ( this will probably take a couple of hours ). After that, if it still doesn't work call SONY.

Hope that helps..........

Freezing


for freezing problems... try to move your system away from areas that are often hot, blocking the vents, or blocking air movement. the main culprit for freezing issues is over heating. if your system becomes too hot it will flash green and red where your power button is. so if your having trouble with that problem follow those steps.
