Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When starting PS3 i get a error (the hard disk database will be rebuilt ) press PS x to start
i press x but loops to the same message error
if i take the Hard drive out and format it with a PC what format do i use ? fat 32 ?
or is there a way of formatting the hard disk with the ps3
It should have formatted with your ps3, even if you formatted the HDD on your laptop it would have asked you the same thing, since the PS3 asks you that so it can install some folders for the pictures, games music etc.
your problem could be caused by faulty HDD installation, a faulty HDD or a broken ps3 that cant read HDDs anymore.
I would make sure the HDD is installed correctly, if that doesnt work I suggest buying a new HDD. If both of those dont work then you have a Ps3 that has a trouble reading HDDs
