HARD DISK NOT FOUND

11 Replies 236 Views Created 06-10-2011

Hi,
My PlayStation doesn't seem to work it says: 'Cannot Start. The correct hard disk was not found'.
Any advice on this?

Thank You,
Ines Pereira

Is the HDD in your ps3 correctly? may be worth taking it out and re-inserting it.

And this is its original HDD? Or did you replace it and then this happened?
