Ps3 slimline says cannot start the correct hard disk was not found


Dear Friend,

Have you consider to replace your hard drive?. That might be a good possibility why your PS3 can not start the way it should. Try that and see what happens.

Good Luck!

Ps3 Can't start - correct hard disk not found


I do believe that it is a firmware issue and not a hard drive issue. If it where a true hard drive failure, your hard drive would be completely useless. Since this error only happens at start up i believe this is what happens.

1) PS3 starts-up and displays the "wave" and plays the "music"
2) The hard drive spins and the PS3 firmware is looking for the "files" on the hard drive for start-up
3) If the start-up files are not found in a certain amount of time, this message is displayed.

I may be wrong but this is my guess.
