Little big planet update [caution with this game].
I just got little big planet for my ps3,put it in,had updates for the game,downloaded and installed game update,and now it wont play anykind of disc.It doesnt even reconize a disc or show a disc symbol.Anyone out there no what to do,or have any answers.
Re: little big planet update [caution with this game].
The same thing happened to me. Played LBP for about 20 mins, the game froze and now it will not load any discs properly. It will show the game but then shows an error. I tried spraying air into it which loaded LBP for another 20 mins but then did the same thing. Of course my warranty ran out about two weeks ago. This is ********. I am not paying $150 for something SONY should pay for. I take great care of all of my equipment and own all of the new game systems and a ton of pro audio gear. None of my other equipment has ever done this only 8 months after owning it. Hell my PS2 lasted all the way up till a month ago and I just need to fix something minor on it. Is this just a coincidence that is happening after loading LBP?

You can update your ps3 without going online on the ps3. Go to http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/index.htm on your computer and download the newest update. Download it to a flash drive. Insert this into the USB port of your ps3. save it to your hard drive, and then update your system from the XBM. Also, newer games (little big planet 2) have the firmware on them so if you buy/rent them, you can install from the disc.

I had the same problem: Blue-Ray games/movies, normal dvds would not play after some time I did the 3.01 upgrade. To work around the problem I went into System Settings and did a system restore - quick format and viola everything was fine. Unfortunately I was not able to run the backup utility to save my game data - (kids not too happy about losing countless hours on Little Big Planet). So hopefully this helps someone - Funny thing is after the restore the version of software was still 3.01 (I thought it would do factory reset). So something got hosed somewhere in the settings or just general HD corruption.
