3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

370 Replies 12,929 Views Created 28-01-2011

I've got the exact same problem!

 

I updated the software this morning to 3.56 and my system works fine.  

My new hard drive came by UPS this afternoon and I installed it properly.

 

Seagate Momentus 500GB 5400 RPM. 

I checked its compatible with the PS3.

 

I created the USB with the proper folders PS3/UPDATE/ and put the update file I just downloaded from sony's website into it.  I press START and SELECT and it comes back with an error code.

It says "the data is corrupt"  (8002F225).    

I tried 4 different USB drives and have tried re downloading the update and it all leads back to the same place?

 

I just put my original HD back in and the system works fine.  The problem is with the update file posted on the Sony website.

I read somewhere that this same thing happened with the 3.41 update a while back.

 

Any Solutions yet??

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

I am trying to upgrade my HDD today again after updating the software to 3.56.  I am following the instructions as they were posted online on how to change out the drive, format and reinstall the drive.  After turning the system and following a few instructions it tells me to press START and Select at the same time to search for the 3.56 software update; a few minutes later I get the same error message and code ("the data is corrupt"  (8002F225).

 

After trying several USB drives, burning the file to CD-R, I tried searching for the error code on the us.playstation.com site only to find that they claim that code doesn't exist.  After that I did a google search for the code and found this posting.

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

There appears to be a problem with the firmware download. Wait until it's been fixed and retry.

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

This is terrible. I'm having this problem too, exept I formatted my original 120gb ps3 drive so I could use it as an external for this upgrade!!!
What if it's months before it's resolved?!!!

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

SO MANY  newly registered members suddenly wanting to change HDD's  after the 3.56  update...

Wonder why   -    Probably just coincidence i suppose.

Re: 3.56 Hard Drive Upgrade Problem

It is total coincidence that I tried upgrading today!

How have I breached terms and conditions though? I've done everything legit - you are allowed to change the hard drive.
