When Jeff's child dropped the PlayStation 3 from 6-feet in the air, it stopped working Cannot start. The appropriate system storage was not found. Rather than risk permanent data loss by reseating the drive blindly, let's instead scan the drive for errors while at the same time making an image file to recover from in case it fails. Can we get the PlayStation 3 to boot?


  1. I'm pretty sure you can't conventionally copy an image of a drive to another drive, ps3 would ask to reformat it upon plugging it in.
  2. Fucking inbreed
  3. Hey guys. I have 2 Playstations, A "Fat Boy" and a later model with the sliding top. I'm have a problem with my Fat Boy. Can you switch out hard drives to see if it's still is working?
  4. My PS3 suddenly stopped working, it won't boot up or start. When I open it or plug it on, the first message is this,
    " Connect the controller using a USB cable, and then press the PS button."
    So then after I pressed the PS button, this is the next message,
    " The system software cannot be run correctly. Press the PS button to try to restart the system. If the system cannot be restarted, the system partition of the system storage must be reformatted and you shall reinstall the system software. Connect the storage media that contains update data of version 4.82 or later, and then press the START and Select buttons at the same time. For information on how to obtain update, refer to the SIE Web site for your region."
    With above message on screen, I cannot turn off the PS unit at the power button.

    Can you help me with this and tell me what I can do to save this unit. Thank you for your kindness.
