HARD DISK NOT FOUND

11 Replies 217 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

Re: HARD DISK NOT FOUND

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

I tried re-inserting it again and it still displays the same message.

Re: HARD DISK NOT FOUND

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

It is the original HDD, I haven't touched the PS3 inside.
