Playstation 3 hard drive problem

The error reads "The hard disks' file system is corrupted and will be restored." Then I click "OK" and it begins restoration, but when it's finished it restarts the system and gives me the same message....over and over. What do I do?

Hi mate, your hd is broke, you could phone sony if its under warranty and they should replace it, or you can upgrade your hd to a 250 gb one, its very simple to do and the price of the unit is about 40 pound or about 80 dollars. Seagate is the best make to use, just google it.

The hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored. I clicked ok to restore system,but system cycles and repeats itself


More than likely the hard drive has bad sectors, that's why it's looping.

Just swap the drive out with ANY 2.5 inch SATA laptop hard drive. They sell 250gb drives from Best Buy for around $50.

Just swap, turn the console back on, and follow the instructions displayed by the PS3 ;)

If you are getting the corrupted hard drive message and the Playstation 3's repair does not repair the drive then you may need to format the drive with a computer. The link below will help you do this. Note if you still have trouble with the drive then you may need to replace the drive as it is having hardware problems.

Playstation 3 message "hard disc file system is corrupted..."


Your hard drive may have gone bad. Maybe try using a different hard drive. Once you put it in, the system data should install itself.

"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.

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.
