[Answered] ps3 won't start help?
When I turn on it says... cannot start. The correct hard disk was not found.
Please help!!! Thanks.
This happens when new hard drive is installed into PS3 and while it usually works fine, some times after starting the PS3 it's not recognized correctly. This is mainly down to fact that new hard drives are SATA II (300 Mit) while PS3 is still using SATA I (150 Mbit) connection and although it is capable of autonegotiation it sometimes simply fails at start - for this cases it's recommended to force the hard drive to always use SATA I / 150 MB mode.
Depending on the make and model this could be either done by a jumper on the hard drive itself and with some models by setting in the BIOS of the hard drive itself - for that you'd need indeed a PC and corresponding hard drive utlity from the manufacturer.
However - this could be also caused by faulty or corrupted hard drive - then you would need to try (as already suggested above) to use some recovery options or - worst case scenario - reformat hard drive or even replace it for a new one.
