Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
More than likely the hard drive has bad sectors, that's why it's looping.
Just swap the drive out with ANY 2.5 inch SATA laptop hard drive. They sell 250gb drives from Best Buy for around $50.
Just swap, turn the console back on, and follow the instructions displayed by the PS3 ;)
