allright my ps3 fat is cechk01, i also have sent back the samsung once and got a replacement and still does the same thing. also there is no format on it when i get the hdd, the techs said i have to format. my pc does read it though any which way it goes. the only thing my pc wont read the original 80gb hdd from the ps3 its there but it does not read. with the samsung installed i tried in safe mode to restart and tried to do the firmware thing from a ext hdd and nothin i think it said unavailable data or somthin. also when i do put my original hdd back in presto its like it was never takin out. i will be happy to provide anything else u need for info. thanks again potatobreath...

I'm thinking it is but I'm not the most tech savvy. Logical_Dolphin is better. Maybe you can shoot him a PM.

Yes ask Logical_Dolphin. He's more qualified. What Safe Mode options did you try?
