"Disc could not be read" error but I don't use UMDs

This has been happening since earlier today, I think. I noticed that when I was playing games the exit game menu appears on its own, and in the menus, the little animated loading circles on the bottom right are just there. When I wait for it for a long time, it shows the "Disc could not be read" error but there are no UMDs in the tray. I never use them anyway. I've updated my firmware from 3.72 M33 to 4.01 M33-2 but to no avail. Please help!

Have you tried going to the recovery menu?

There should be an option for "NO-UMD" in there. If it is not enabled, enable it. Otherwise your screwed.

Bought new call of duty black ops and im getting an error code 80010514. this happens with my fallout new vegas as well but all my older games still load and play. whats wrong with my ps3 its a slimline...

This doesn't help much but I have the exact same problem and I KNOW it is not the disc. We have two PS3's. 1st one is a 120g and the 2nd is a 250g. We bought two disc, one for my husband and one for my son. Our 120g reads and plays both disc perfectly but when we put either one of the disc in our 250g we receive the 80010514 error. Neither disc will play in the 250g and both play perfectly in our 120g. We have tried everything Sony has told us all the way to the complete hard drive restore (the 14 hour one) Nothing will make it play. It recognizes the game and allows us to see backround game picture with option to start , get info, or internet search but when you start you get that error every single time. Like the guy above everyone of our other games and blu-ray disc work perfect. Playstation sent us our box to send in for repairs today so we will see what happens but from the research we have checked our guess is 1 of 2 things. Either there is some type of bug with the 250g not being able to run this specific game OR this could mean the blu-ray reader is about to go out but has not yet. I say this because I read something about Black Ops running faster and harder in the drive than other games because of some type of smooth texture graphics type thing. Not sure exactly what all that means but something about running the disc harder than other games. Kinda makes me think blu-ray is on the verge of going but who knows. So far I have only found others with the 250g having this problem. Luckily it's still under warranty so it's in Sony's hands now. Just hope they hurry and have some answers.

Wii "Error has occured, eject game disc." for one CLEAN game

Nintendo is AWESOME about warranties. If you keep pushing the subject they will replace your unit free of charge. The drive mechanism is going out. It just so happens you haven't noticed it on any other game, it will happen with other games however.

The Wii will not read the disc

"Unable to read disc" error happened today for the first time on my Wii. I positioned it horizontally and tapped on the top while it was reading a disc and it started the game. This temporary solution might bring you immediate, but probably not long lasting satisfaction.

Wii console

If you have game cube games you may want to try them as well. If it plays the game cube games but not the wii games it sounds like the sensor inside is bad and you will need to contact nintendo so they can fix the sensor.
