• my playstation 3 is 9 months old, I turned it on yesterday and got the following message:
    "An error occured during the rebuild operation. The harddrive must be formatted .All data on the harddrive will be deleted during formatting. Do you want to format?"

    What does all this mean, I did nothing different to all the other times I have played. Any ideas please?
  • That is odd- sounds like something has gone amiss with the system. Fortunately, you are still under the warranty period (one year from purchase) so if you still have the receipt you can get things fixed by Sony at no charge to you- they'll even send the box to ship it to them. Give them a call at the tech support number. In the UK it's 08705 99 88 77 (how did I know you are in the UK? I have my ways ;) ).
