All you need is a friend with a ps3!! Swap the hdd's and boot up your friends ps3, format the hdd, put it back in your ps3 and you may need to format it again.

SOURCE: error message: hard drive corruption

You should try formating your hard disk. And if you still get the same message and you dont have warranty you should change the hard drive. But maybe is because you didnt update the firmware but maybe is not that.

good luck!

SOURCE: Ps3 continously restoring hard drive

there are bad sectors on the hard drive which is why it keeps restoring cause it can never read all the info properly.

My suggestion would be to get a new 80 gig hard drive, put it in there, reformat it and youll have a great working system.

SOURCE: corrupt ps3 hard drive recover data

NO, there is NOTHING you can do. The drive is encrypted by the PS3.

The ONLY thing you can do is replace the hard drive with a new drive and keep the old drive somewhere safe until the PS3 is hacked.

That's it!

SOURCE: On our PS3 corrupt data message

Replace the hard drive as the data may be in a bad sector. I would suggest you use the sony method of carrying this out and not doing it yourself as it can viod the warranty or if you want to just purchase another hard drive.

the data is in a bad area of the disk and thus cannot be recovered. Now you can try something cleaver by take out the hard drive and run spinright on it you can get spin right at www.grc.com now i know for a fact spin right does repair corupted data by moving it out of the bad sector.

Or

Replace the disc itself these people at www.videogamerepair.com witch I found in our directory does save this kinda stuff.

So your pretty much have two choices here.

Thanks and I do hope this was Very Helpful to you!

Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console My PS3 hard disk is corrupted, It say to restore i put restore and nothing had been restored Bid


Corrupted hard disk? Lets see....

You could attempt to boot up the PS3 in safe mode and restore the file system (should delete any corrupted data). Describing how to start up your PS3 in safe mode would just be confusing, so instead here's a link to the official page on the PS3 Safe Mode feature.

Follow the instructions, and then I'd say try options 3 (Restore File System). If that doesn't work, try 4 or 5 (Rebuild Database or Restore PS3 System).

If that fails, you could just replace the hard drive. The PS3 uses standard 2.5inch SATA laptop/notebook hard drives (5400 or 7200 RPM). They can be found online at any computer parts website; for example, Tigerdirect.

If somehow the new hard drive doesn't fix it, or you don't feel like buying a new hard drive, you could send the PS3 back to Sony. If you're under warranty it's free; otherwise it's expensive (150$ I believe).

If you request the repair service, they send you a box, you put the PS3 in it and ship it back to them. A month or 2 later they send you a fixed/different PS3. Simple, but takes forever to get a working PS3 back which is why I suggest you try a new hard drive first.

Anyways, hope you get it working soon!

"the hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored"


           Ok, it appears that your hard drive in your PS3 is corrupt and needs to be reformatted. You can get an external hard drive enclosure and do it yourself. You would have to take the hard drive out of your PS3 and put it in the external hard drive enclosure and plug that into a computer with the supplied USB cable and format it. From what I'm reading out there, the external hard drive enclosure has to be for SATA 2.5" hard drive.             You could probably replace the hard drive with a larger one just as easy if you wanted to. If you don't feel comfortable with any of this, then its probably repair shop time. I hope this helps.moreover,,Use your recovery disc to reinstall your operating system. This should clean up your hard drive and restore any missing or corrupt files.
