    and then I put the HDD back in my ps3 and it said this

    either:

    1. The HDD is damage by your hands (static charge on your hands)
    2. The HDD was initialize on your PC.
    3. Poor contact with your HDD and PS3.

    Q: will a new HDD fix the problem?
    A: Probably, since the problem is the HDD itself and the problem start acting weird when the time you play on it.

    I had this error once but I can't remember how I fixed it... Did you format the drive?

    I had this error once. I foolishly thought that I could view filed from the PS3 HDD on my PC, and it didnt work. A reformat to NTFS will fix it right up, but everything will be lost.
