error code 8002F271

18 Replies 23,384 Views Created 18-09-2012

Had to replace my HDD 250gb for my slimline PS3. Did a software update via my pc and a memory stick as the new HDD was blank.

 

All went ok till I put the memory stick into my PS3.I followed the instructions but when it started to download the data the error code 8002F271 was reported and it stopped.

 

I was using the new 4.25 software update.

 

What have I done wrong or have I missed something out??

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Hi Stifferz,

 

Most likely there is an issue with the data on the USB Stick.

 

The update either did not download properly, or the file system is not correct- System Software Updates.

 

When downloading the update form the website, try a wired connection from the modem to the PC. This will ensure the router does not affect the download of the update, and block information packets going through.

It could be the USB stick but error 8002F271 means actually there is a problem with your harddrive.

 

For example it is damaged or it got a bios lock or the harddrive is locked for a certain system by the vendor. is it a notebook harddrive?

Hi,

 

Thanks for that.

 

Not sure what the new HDD came off. I bought it from a family member who 'knows' someone that sells PS3 spares.

 

If it is what you say, what do I need to do to get it to work???

Thanks for your help, its really appreciated.

I have checked the new HDD and its an identical Hitachi 250gb to the 1 I am trying to replace.

That being the case, I would have thought it would have the same specs as the old one.

If the problem is to do with the download do you have any suggestions???

I have tried numerous times to do this and it usually crashes between 3 and 5% but on one occasion I got to 45%.

 

Any helpful information would be appreciated.

Hola a todos, soy técnico de electrónica y he realizado varias pruebas.

 

- Este error sale porque el disco duro está en mal estado.

- No se trata de que la actualización esté descargada mal ni nada por el estilo porque si así fuera no empezaría el formateo.

 

 

 

Muchas gracias a todos.

From the look of things, the answer to that is "Nope :( "

Have you tried the Safe Mode menu and worked your way through the options on it?

This error means that the HDD has a administrative lock on it. Pop the hard drive into a pc and run a setup on it. Remove the password locking the device because if you dont it will stay with the hard drive and the ps3 can't get past the block.

This is what I did after reading most of the crappy advise people are giving on here. Worked for me and no issues thus far.

Thanks a lot, it worked!!

Indeed, I had setup a password in the Boot Setup of my laptop which I completely forgot when I tried to install this same SSD drive into the PS3.

I used SystemRescueCD to remove the NTFS and format it into FAT32.

I still had to place it back into my laptop to Disable the password security on the SSD before attempting the PS3 System Restore, even after having succeded formatting it from NTFS to FAT32.
