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. Hi please I wish to know
    How can I transfer games from one ps3 to another ps3 without losing old games?
  2. Atleast your PS4 didn't freeze and corrupt half of the drive.

    It checked the system storage and got to 61% then it read "Cannot start the PS4."
    "Connect a DUALSHOCK 4 with the USB and press the PS button." And looped.

    Only way to bypass this message, even after partially updating the system is to factory reset.

  19. If my ps3 is completely trashed, no power buttons, eject buttons, ribbon cable, however, I replaced the  psu. But I just want the data from the hard drive, what are my options, considering sony's hard drive encription. I don't care about the system itself, I just need game data for oone specific game, maybe two.
  20. Would it be possible to just buy a new hard drive and use that one. I don’t want my data.
