Go to standby mode, then press the power button in for 3-5 seconds, until you hear a second beep. a menu with 6 or so options should appear.

 Choose the option which reads "Repair File System".

I had this problem about a year ago. It was my PS3 harddrive had mega failed :smileysad: . So got a 350gig from ebuyer and been great since.

But if you have lost your HDD, means all ya saves are gone :smileysad:

oh my bad.

from standby mode, hold in the button until it turns off back to standby (redlight), then hold down power again until you hear a double beep. then the menu should come up
