Im unable to install disc in drive
I have seen several suggestions at the playstation*com PS3 forums in the past, such as:

This one with multiple discs jammed it sounds like it may apply to you:
"If anyone is having any problems, this is what worked for me. What is more amazing is that my son somehow managed to force 3 discs into that tiny slot...no idea how he pulled that one off.
after two hours, a pair of tweezers, a fork, and a butterknife, I
decided to try one last thing before giving up. I put the PS3 on its
nose, disc tray down, held the eject button while it was on, and pushed
a disc in and out of the drive. This caused whatever was in there to
finally 'catch' as the drive had been trying to force everything out.
After 2-3 minutes of play, a disc finally poked out. I pulled what i
thought was one and two discs came out. I set it back down flat, tried
to put a cheap DVD in (didn't want to test it with a $60 game) and it
seemed something was still in there. I hit eject and out came the third
disc. I put the DVD in reluctantly and the PS3 took it and loaded it
right up. Unbelievable. After all this abuse, it's apparent these
things are built like tanks."
You gotta love children.
Hope that helps.
Comments: Oh, one more thing I remembered to try before you ship it off to Sony
or open it up. Touch the eject button on the PLAYSTATION 3 system front
for 10 seconds or longer to force the disc to eject. After
removing and before reinserting a disc into the PLAYSTATION 3, turn off
the system, and then turn on the system again to resume use.
