    If anyone can answer this then i'd appreciate it, i couldn't find a direct answer online, and im sure someone here has done this before, but does a hardware reset i.e :

    1. Turn your PS3 off (standby mode)
    2. Flip the switch on the back.
    3. With your finger already on the front power button flip on the switch in the back and hold it down until you hear 2 beeps.

    delete all my data on the HDD on the PS3 ?

    As in will everything i have saved, downloaded etc get deleted ? (also i have a slim so there is no flip switching, so what do i do, take out the power cord ?)

    Im facing the 80029564 error whenever i tried installing anything i download (everything is getting corrupt that is) and i was advised to do this

    Anyway will doing that erase everything on my Hard drive ?

    Thanks.

    just try unplugging it and plugging it back in.
    If it broke then sony will be getting sued every time the power goes out.

    holding power until 2 beeps puts it in recovery menu where you have a few options. At least one will delete your hard drive data.
    The flipping of the power switch isn't necessary, unplugging/replugging in your PS3 may be necessary if you cant get into the recovery menu.

    Edit here's a link to the options and a short description

    there is also a Restore PS3 System option
    as for the error 80029564
    are you on 3.66 (or the Latest ofw for the ps3)
    are you getting the file form the PSN
    is you connection good
    wifi or wired?

    thanks for all the replies [​IMG]

    Yes im on 3.66, getting the file directly from PSN, my connection is quite crap, and the cnxn is wired

    regardless, this is only happening when i try to download the god damn Escalation Map Pack for blackops, a quick google will show that many many people have this

    i tried downloading something else, no problem. I downloaded the first map pack (1.6GB) no problem. I downloaded fat princess, castle crashers, Tetris, no problems , so i can rule out its anything due to the Pee S 3.

    2 emails to tech "support" of Sony (and each demanding a refund) - their reply " We advise using a different modem and possible another ISP"

    seriously what is this shit.

    If my English is correct, that means that ONLY corrupt data will only be deleted (if any) everything else should stay the same no ?
