Did you format your new drive by selecting "System Settings" and then the "Format Utility."?


it still says hard drive not found but it won't go into safe mode either????? Can't get any farther than the disk drive error message

Cindy, try this. Make sure the PS3 is off. Press and hold the power button until you hear 2 beeps, then let it go. From the debug menu, select "Restore File System" and follow the prompts, hope this helps. Good Luck
