Recovery Menu - Gone! Can I get it back without a full HDD reformat? –
I posted this a while back in another thread but got no responses so I've started this new thread.
I had a problem not recovering HDD space after deleting large games so I went into recovery mode and selected 'rebuild files' from the menu.
A message came up saying there were corrupt files and did I want to fix. I selected yes. Loading bar filled up and went back to XMB but the 'less than 500mb of space' message that had me doing this in the first place popped up again.
Now, I tried to get back to recovery mode to try 'rebuild database' but instead of the Recovery Menu, all I end up with is a black screen!!
I've done it countless times repeating the same process I got to the recovery menu previously.
That is: PS3 switched off, press and hold power button until PS3 first powers on then off. Let go of button and then press and hold until you hear two beeps in quick succession at which point you let go of the button and screen asks you to connect controller with usb cable.
Anyone know of a possible solution to getting the recovery menu back?
I want to upgrade the fw but can't get into recovery mode to do so. I guess I'll have to reformat the HDD but want to be sure before I do that there isn't a simpler solution.
