I started my ps3 today but it didn't come past that blue scree nstarting sequence it always has. I had this a couple times before and every time I just restarted my PS3 and it worked fine again. but when I did that this time it just happened again and when I did it again, it said my hard disk's file system is corrupted and it needs to be restored. So I did that but when it was done, it restarted and said the same thing again, and that just repeats every time. I had this before and then I needed to reformat my ps3, and I lost all my saves, now Im finally back to where I was in RDR and now it happens again. Is there anything I can do except reformatting again?(BTW, I replaced my hdd with an 500gb HDD I bought in a store, don't know if that matters) thanks.

Could this be the HDD issues that the latest firmware introduced? Im not sure, try manually downloading the latest update from interent and installing it from pendrive.

from what I heard, that firmware issue doesn't even let you replace the HDD, while I've played with the new HDD for a while, and I think I already had the HDD installed when the firmware patch came up.

It might be your hard drive and a error made during the initial disk formatting. Id save all your data on a usb stick and reformat. Ofcouse you said you didnt wanna do that.
