yeah i have been trying all this on a completely formatted hard drive. did all the safe mode things. same issue again. losing my mind here so last try at something. found a samsung drive to put into the ps3 and have taken out the original. i figure if this one works then the ps3 is ok, and my drive is stuffed - so not an issue for me. otherwise it could well be the blu ray like you said and that makes me a sad panda

for anyone who is wondering ps3's use Toshiba drives. put in a samsung my dad had lying around. played two full games (of 10 minute halves) of FIFA and not one skip or jolt or freeze at all. so i suspect it is a faulty hard drive after, which is relieving.
thanks for all the help strangeplaice, appreciate it

im having the same exact problem, but when you say this do you mean that you installed a new blu ray drive? and that fixed the issue?

He installed a new hard disk drive to resolve the issue.
If you believe you have the same issue, you could check to see if you have a Toshiba drive by opening the drive cover and removing the drive (While the PS3 is off.)
The drive cover on old PS3 models is on the bottom/left, and the SuperSlim is on the right hand side.
