I have had a system crash and the PS3 tells me about corrupted files and the need to reformat. I have followed the advice on the posts on this forum and entered safe mode and tried all the steps to no avail. I have now reluctantly commenced reformatting the drive and the system has been at it for about 5hrs.
How long should this take?
Also, what should I do if this fails?
I would appreciate any help that anyone can give me.
Solved! Go to solution
Thanks. I will attempt again today.
Do you mean replace the hard drive or the entire system?
Thanks for your help.
I tried again for about 14hrs yesterday but it just keeps displaying the restoring screen. I think its had it!
Can I remove the HDD and plug it into my Macbook pro and reformat it that way?
it's easiest to buy one in FAT32 format, then you'll just be able to stick it right in the PS3 ;)
Most aren't pre-formatted but that might work.
