[Answered] Is this a PS3 hdd issue?
My first ps3 crapped out ylod and a reflow didn't help. So i got one from a friend and he said it crapped out while updating it said corrupt data during install. now it just boots to a screen and it says it has to reformat the hdd and to insert a usb with firmware on it and press start and select.
i can't find firmware, well i can and that's what sparked this thread. plus the search feature didn't find anything on this but i'm sure it's been answered even though i don't really have a question just yet. Just really askin for help.
so once i get the firmware will this fix it or not. what do i do? i do have another hdd handy, gonna try both.
thanks in advance

Couldn't use 3.1. Had to use 3.5. I slapped a hdd I had laying around in it after trying with the original. Hooray, it worked. Just a bad hdd. Sucks I had to use 3.5. I bet 3.5 was already on it. Oh well. I got a free ps3.
