If its so simple it should be able to delete it. Or if it cant do that it should be able to remove it from the list so at least you cant see it.

I agree, its not just corrpt data. On my external hard drive I keep all my videos, I transfer them over from my PC. Well, everytime I connect the hard drive to my PC, it puts a Recycling Bin file on it.

So when I'm browsing the videos on the PS3, I see all my movie titles and in the middle I see RECYCLING BIN.

When I try to delete it, the PS3 says it can't delete it because its not a video file.... Well DUH, why do you think I want to delete it?!?

.. and FUTHERMORE, do you realize you're reading my signature?!?

I previously had a few "Corrupted File" icons on my PS3 for many months. I got an error message every time I attempted to delete these files, but I finally found the solution. There is no need to back-up any files, but you can if it'll help you feel better. I've shared this trick with many people, and there were no problems. Don't hold me responsible if you lose anything, though. Just follow these steps...

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
7. Select "Restore File System" from the Recovery menu.
8. Agree to restoring the file system.

You'll see a progress bar detailing the restoration, and once it is finished your system will restart. Your "Corrupted File" icons will still be there, but you will now be able to delete them.

Hope this helps!

Only corrupt file i have had was the Game Data for Wheelman, when i first installed it my power went out.

Whenever i tried to delete it,it would just sit there for a few minutes and do nothing.  I finally got tired of looking at it and went to delete it and just let it sit,It took almost 15 mins for it to finally finish deleting. But damnit it was finally gone.

Just make a folder called VIDEO(in caps) on your hardrive. When you plug it into the PS3 and go to video, it will show only the files in the video directory.
