Well, by the response I'm getting i guess ill have to order one.
will this one be fine??
Thank for the help guys.............:(
You could try calling Sony. I dont know anything about that so i cant really help you.
I doubt sony could do anything except replace the harddrive. I would just like to point out that the harddrive you listed there would work but it has a speed of 5400 rpm. i dont know if this is standard for sata drives or is good enough to game on but usually on the harddrives ive seen (mostly) IDE usually spins at 7200 rpm and for hardcore gamers out there the 10 000 rpm varieties exist

okay i just checked and most of the ps3 compatible harddrives on newegg are 5400 rpm. the 7200 variety is the fastest available...
possible solution to your problem that just popped into my head: try booting without the ps3 harddrive. if it boots. insert the harddrive after boot and format it or w.e.
You took it off right? The harddrive?
Try inserting another one...if you have it...
if you take out the hdd,it says hdd not found.
the reviews on the 5400 vs 7200 said there was absolutely no difference in load times.it was all in the cache and size that made the diffrence.
If I had another one,I would not need to buy one :)
If i take this hdd to a pc shop and have them format it,would that possibly solve the problem?
or will it not format a windows formatted drive?
Well,i took the hdd in today and had it formatted.
it had a bad sector.
All fixed now and works fine.....getting a 100 gb anyway as i dont trust it now.
Sony really should fix this and let you into the format utility when you get this error.
Ive done some reading and if you get a corrupt error.your pretty much screwed unless you can get it formatted.
