Any help for Corrupt HD?
Any help for Corrupt HD? –
So this is the third time this has happened to me and none from Assassins Creed. I know I can pull the HD, format it, reinstall it, reload the firmware, reload my backup and be back running but I am curious if anyone else has found a way to fix the drive leaving the data intact because this process takes hours to complete.
I can't remember what the exact circumstances were for the first time but the second time was just from trying to launch Virtua Fighter 5. I launched it with a disk in the drive from multiman, selected the virtua fighter disk icon from XMB, the screen went black and the ps3 was unresponsive to everything. I had to power down manually and when I restarted it, corrupt files... This time I was playing Transformers: War for Cybertron, I paused the game for a while, came back and again the ps3 was unresponsive. Powered back on and corrupt HD. This is driving me crazy!
I have a Slim with a male-to-female SATA cable running to a externally powered 3.5in 1TB drive (acting as the internal drive) and an external 1.5TB USB drive that holds my backups. I'm using a ps3break and a USB hub to connect it all. I'm running the latest version of multiman and the latest update for the ps3break.
Any help and or criticism to my methods are welcome. Thanks.
Yep, I did try that first both times but like 15 seconds into it, it comes up with the message that the HD will have to be formatted.
Have you had better luck with different managers? I see lots of peolpe using Gaia.
Sorry to hear that it didn't work... if you're getting corrupted HDD warnings frequently then it sounds like there might be something mechanically wrong with it :\
Naw, I don't use anything except MultiMAN =)

It's happened time and time again. Sometimes a rebuild will fix it, but generally speaking, the only 100% way to fix has been to format. You never mentioned if you're using PL3 or Hermes though and if you've switched back and forth between those payloads. That can make a difference too, as PL3 does permissions differently then Hermes does and switching between the 2 payloads can cause other permission problems with your HDD too.
I always keep an original game disk in the drive just to be safe.
I believe I'm using the Hermes payload - at least that is what it looks like the Chinese PS3Break company is providing for the device since they spell it out with the newest beta version - they didn't mention it in the past versions- gogsoftware.com
Maybe another problem is that the games I have on the external drive were "pre-loaded" - deal extreme.com/details.dx/sku.50105
