hi i saw your post and was a little confused. why would you want to try to format your ps3 hard drive on your laptop?
i would't think you could do that as there is not only a huge risk of the drives being damaged but there is also the compatibility issue. the majority of laptop components are made spacific to the brand or manufacturer line it belongs to, and i should imagine ps3 drives are too.
if you go the settings tab on the ps3, select "systems settings","restore default settings" and see if that sorts out the problem. if not go to "systems settings" and "format utility" then select "format hard disk".
good luck with it.
