PS3 infinite preparing, what should I do?


I was in safe mode on my PS3 and I chose option 4, which is “Rebuild Database”. My PS3 and and somebody who works for Sony who I spoke to over the phone both said that it should take a few hours to complete. That’s not the case for me because as of the time of writing this it has taken 19 hours. What should I do?

  1. Sounds like a possible bad drive. Turn it off by holding the power button until it shuts down. Then go back into Safe Mode and try again. If it doesn’t work and continues to be stuck, then you just may need a new hard drive. IF that’s the case, any 2.5″ SATA (laptop style) 5400 RPM drive will work.
