so i ****** up my harddrive yesterday but got it fixed now i only have 268gb out of 320gb tryed a full format on the ps3 took like 15hours still not got the right gb even tryed a couple of quick formats to ? any ideas on how to sort this out ?
btw when you format is the rebug CFW suppose to stay on or is it to revert back to OFW ? rebug has stayed on for me ?
Rebug will stay on the ps3 as the firmware is on the nand not the hd, well the main part is on the nand, only if the ps3 has 16mb nand does some of the fimware go on the hd, format the hd on a computer and scan it for bad blocks/sectors.
laptop cant find the HD m8 pluged it in using a usb converter thing lol
finds and installs the drive but when i go to my computer there is no drive **** up just the usuall C: and D:
does the ps3 HD get formatted to FAT32 ?
not in tht house just now should be in the next 2 hours any help would do ?
and a duno if its on this site or not but i seen there was a program out by one of the DEVS that formats fat32 ?
not using my facebook account any more registerd as a user
You have two options now, use a gparted live cd or install Easeus partion manager, both should find the drive and let you delete all partitions or format it, then you should be able to do a disk check, oh and no the ps3 filesystem is not fat32, its got its own native filesystem.
Easeus Partition manager is available from http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm
And gparted from http://gparted.sourceforge.net/
cheers m8 will try that just now ! let you no how i get on
right so i tryed
EASEUS Partition Master 8.0.1 Home Edition fines the HD but when i go to the partion bit it cant find any and theres no bit to format and gparted is for linux ? iam on windows vista
Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management
It'll let you do it from there. Keep in mind you will not get a full 320GB because of how bytes and bits are calculated. My 160GB ps3 hard drive has 149GB usable.
right so i put it into my other laptop ran a format that all finished put the HD back into the ps3 it formatted then put OFW in and it still says 263gb but when i had it in the laptop it was ******* up 298 .... so f**k knows whats happnin with it lol ?
this is a ps3 site not a fekin **** site you mug
well my uncle just asked me ... does the rebug fw take space of the HD ?
