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??
Solved! Go to Solution.

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.
