    People here are very helpful. After this kind of afirmation, I would not help you anymore. How do you know someone is professional or not? If you wanna a professional, just pay someone.

    You shouldn't need to installise the dics on windows if prompted to. Just connect it to you PC, either use a USB to SATA adapter or whack it in your PC and connect using one of the internal HDD sata cable, then ignore the prompt you will get, most likely it will say there is something wrong with the disc you connected> just ignore it.

    Then use something like "Crystal Disc Info" to check the health of the HDD. Crystal disc is one of the best free tools to do this with.

    Okay... I can't start up Recovery mode on my CFW ps3. It's always a black screen. I connected my HFW through HDMI to make sure its not the cable. I held down the power button the first time until it completely turns off. Then, I held down the power button after it shut down and wait for the 3rd beep (4th because the third is 2 beeps in 1) and release. It's not showing the recovery menu as it did before any of this happened. So, I have to follow the "take out your HDD" option, right? Or what can I do here instead if possible?

    might be the hdd, but the emer_init.self (the recovery menu) is not on the hdd. it's in the core OS.

    Can I just take out the HDD, and turn it into a Fat32 external drive for my HFW console? Is it really worth trying to fix a 120 GB ps3 HDD for CFW or turn it into a HFW external drive? Im very indecisive.

    You took it wrong and I also said it wrong, I mean't that I wanted to hear the opinions of others as well and take a decision! Calm down, lol, I know how good people are.

    I haven't, Im afraid I'll break something so I haven't opened my ps3 at all ever. Can I just watch a tutorial on YouTube on how to disassemble a Slim Ps3, and take out the HDD? But what then? Does it come with an input for a micro USB, or something like that? because I've seen normal HDDs and they have some special cable entry on top which is very wide and unique, I don't have a desktop PC, I have a All-In-One PC. Should I get a special adapter for the HDD?

    you don't need to open the ps3 to get to the hdd. there's a small screw behind this sliding door on the bottom of the system. take that out, move the front panel over, and there's your hdd.

    You only need to remove your hdd and put it on a pc, and pay attention to don't format and don't itinitialize it on windows. Use "Crystal Disk Info". It's not difficult if you pay attention.

    Adapters usually don't allow to read SMART parameters. So you will have to open your all in one and check if it has any sata ports and power connectors to connect this hdd.

    It's the only way to check if your hdd is ok. All symptoms you described are related to it.

    just try taking the hdd out and turning on the system. it will show an error. that way you'll know there's still life with the system.

    Personally, my cheapish USB3.0 to IDE/SATA adapter does allow for SMART info but as has been said, not all of them do.. You could, if you have a USB flash drive free, create UBCD or DLCBoot drive, launch some tools after swapping the HDD into your AIO (if it's easily accessible and you won't kill some kind of warranty!) or..maybe have an old laptop to hand you could pop it into and boot the aforementioned USB or even burn a CD with UBCD/DLC? Or have a friend that can pop it into his/her machine? It does kinda sound like your HDD, i'm beginning to suspect my own is...less than healthy, shall we say xD

    As for Crystal Disk Info.. It's alright for free but on DLCBoot the program "Victoria" is available and for older HDDs in particular it's more informative and can give you a much clearer answer with health bars and whatnot..

    If you need a hand just let me/us know.. Only being 120GB, might be time to bite the bullet and get hold of a bigger drive for it anyways? If it's not dead, of course..

    Thank you! I'm hoping I dont have to invest money to repair this, it's no biggie because I have a HFW ps3 but it does hurt to see this CFW ps3 along my PERSONAL GAME PROGRESS go ( ;-; )because of not having the stuff to fix it. I'm going to get a gaming PC anyway when I get a job and the money soon, but I haven't started. I'm only 19, and in my city it's very hard to get a job, and I'm moving out for that, and other than stupid personal reasons.
