    Hello there. If you could provide us with more information on the HDD, whether it came in a Laptop or Desktop computer system. Warranty can vary based on location, purchase and the type of system owned. For example in the UK HDD are sold with 1 year warranty from the company who sells the component, however many hard disks have an extended warranty from the manufacturer.

    As such it is generally possible to check the manufacturer's website, or the retailler, to see if the component is covered.

    Hope this helps.

minimum of 3 years warranty is provided by the rest,
if you duno when you bought it, then you can go to the service center and they will check the serial and tell you if its still under warranty

You can also use SeaTools to display each number.

If your drive is not connected to your computer: See the flash-based Serial Number locator tool to find your serial number and model number (and/or occasionally the serial number and the part number) on the drive label.

Hi, how old is your ps3? if its less than a few years I would think about getting on the PS3 website
with your model/serial number if its still under warranty you should get a replacement.
If its old and not under warranty it isn't that hard to replace a ps3 HD
It even tells yuo how to do it in your PS3 manual
Any 2.5" internal sata drive should do, and they are not that expensive
If you have lost your ps3 manual here is another guide on changing hard drive
good luck


My 120G hardrive stopped working, it erased all my data, wont save data, and when i go to the memory unit selection and select the hardrive, it says FORMAT, i select it, then it asks to put in serial...

Like all hardware devices it depends on how old the unit is and whether the problem is covered under warranty. More than likely you have bad sectors on the HDD and it will not format which will require a new HDD. Check and see if it is still under warranty if not you will need to purchase a new one.

Hard disk Warranty

Contact Samsung

Model: Samsung Spinpoint SP0802N

Call 1-800-SAMSUNG (1-800-726-7864)

Bad sectors and fails under minor load

No it's not repairable. Copy any data you want from it to another drive, cd, dvd, etc. Go to and fill out a warranty RMA form. If it's warranty you'll get a new one from Seagate
