Corrupted file system
My Life With PlayStation thing came up saying it had an update, so I let it download, install, reboot. After rebooting the PS3 gave me this error message saying the file system was corrupted. It tries to do a "restore" but just reboots back to the same error screen in a loop. Any ideas?
Have you tried using the Recovery Menu?
I had never heard of it but I tried now. No luck, it just shows the "file system corrupted" screen. Thanks anyway.
Ohh dear that's a shame, maybe something with the HDD itself?
Have you tried removing it before?
OK those instructions were confusing and I was doing it wrong but I followed these instruc tions which looks like the same thing:
Sadly I went thru all of the steps so far except for Restore PS2 System and none worked. That last one is the one that reformats the drive and deletes everything.
