You can try first removing the hard drive for a few minutes that put it back in then check if you will still have the same error, you can also try to put a new hard drive and see if that one will work fine..

Hope that helps.........

It seems that you got a harddisk problem on your PS3, try to remove the HDD and put it back again... but if the unit was under warranty its better not to touch anything on the parts..

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!

Screen says "cannot start. the correct hard drive was not found"


Your hard drive has crashed.

Swap it out with a new SATA laptop drive, follow the onscreen instructions from the PS3 and you are good to go.

PS3- cannot start. Correct hard disk not found.


when your ps3 is standing upright the tall way tip it over and look at the bottom there should be a plate that says something about the hard drive. get a flat screwdriver and pry on the right side of the plate. The hard drive is directly behind that plate and is secured by a blue screw. take out the screw and flip out the little u shaped handle and slide it to the right and pull out your hard drive. Try blowing out all the connections and putting it back in hope this helps

Ps3 problems again


Have you tried pulling out the hard drive and then turn it on to see what it does? If it says the same thing the hard drive may have died if not put the drive in making sure its firmly seated and power back up, make sure the power is off before you do anything. Was the system dropped at all?

Hard disk


remove your hard drive, power on teh console, power off the console, install the hard disk again and power again the console.
Hope this will make the system recognize the hard drive again.
