You can use the internet browser on the ps3 and find the pics in like photobucket or tiny pic and just save it from the web to your ps3.

Our playstation 3 does not read any game disc's but we can still access the hard drive?


Since the disc drive and hard drive aren't linked, the disc drive can fail while still allowing you to access all the data on your PS3.

Unfortunately, if the disc reading problems continue, there's very little you can do about it yourself. It's possible the lens reading the discs has becomes smudged. You can try a disc cleaner to see if it helps.

If not, you will likely have to send it in for repairs, which may be expensive. Make sure you backup your saves and other files to a USB drive before sending it. Good luck!

PS3 - Game crash followed by disc read error


The update corrupted your hard drive that's why it's not loading any disc.Yes,Restoring the system will work but it will destroy all your saved game data.Updating the system will not remove the hard disk defect.There is only one solution,Reset it.

Can't play games or movies


you have a disc read error on your ps3. you can either send it to sony and pay 150 if not under warrenty, or you can get a whole new disc drive for about 50-60 bucks on ebay. you can find a video on youtube on how to install it yourself. its pretty simple.

My PS3 won't read the games or DVD's. Is the hard drive frozen or broken? My Son is very diappointed that he will lose all his game history? Can anyone help?


if the ps3 wont read DISC games the BD drive in the ps3 is bad and needs to be replaced. I would suggest you call Sony and have them replace the drive if the ps3 is still under warranty.

since the BD discs are read only and nothing is stored on them like game saves, your son wont lose any saves he has becasue they are stored on the ps3 hard drive.

i would suggest if you do send the console to sony i would back up the contents of the drive just incase they decide to wipe it clean.

you can perform a backup from the setting menus on the ps3.

My ps3 is past the waqrranty and wont read ps3 games and movies


anything on the hard drive can be saved. thats not hard. but i cant give excellent advice without knowing history. before sending it away i would get a dvd laser lens cleaner, put it through and check if that makes a difference. if not then i cant see it as b eing anythig to do with the lens or disc so sending it away may be the next solution
