A friend of mine has had a similar problem. It sounds like the drive reader for the PS3. You can either update the drive if you can or get Sony to take a look and replace it for free under warranty. It sounds like more of the driver since you can play PS2 games so get the driver looked at first. Talk to Sony Support for more info.

Hope This Helps

Blue Ray not working


One of the advantages of owning an HP Pavilion includes playing your favorite DVDs conveniently at home or anywhere with your HP Pavilion laptop or notebook.
Whether you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista, your HP Pavilion may experience problems playing your DVDs.
For example, sometimes you may have a DVD movie skip while playing, which can happen frequently with a lot of DVD handling, such as with rental DVDs.
Perhaps your DVD player does not recognize the DVD and rejects it.
When you troubleshoot your HP Pavilion DVD player, you become more acquainted with your HP Pavilion, plus you can get back to movie-watching sooner.
Clean the DVD if you notice any skipping while playing or if the DVD stops.
You can clean the DVD by wiping it from the center to the edge using a lint-free cloth and filtered water.
Avoid watching DVD movies while you have a virus system scan operating on your computer system.
Reschedule the virus scan to another time or disconnect the scan temporarily and then reconnect the scan when you have finished watching your movie.

Disconnect from the Internet while watching movies.
Other programs on your HP computer can access the Internet and disrupt the movie as you watch.
Turn off your printer, scanners and other external devices connected to your HP Pavilion while you watch movies.
This allows your computer to concentrate its resources on your DVD player.
Install the latest DVD player updates from the HP Support and Drivers website for the best DVD performance.
Test the DVD Drive
Insert the DVD into the HP Pavilion DVD drive. Close any window that opens automatically.
Click "Start" and then "Computer."
Right-click on the DVD player icon and then choose "Explore."
Check to make certain you placed the DVD into a DVD drive.
If the HP Pavilion DVD drive ejects the disc or prompts you to insert a disc, it does not recognize the DVD.
You can also try inserting another DVD disc. If you do not see folders appear, such as VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TX, you may have a defective disc, or the DVD may not be compatible with your DVD drive, such as a Blu-ray disc.
Try a different DVD movie.
Insert a regular CD into the DVD drive to see whether HP can read it, after you have tried playing several DVDs.
If the drive can read the CD, it may not be the DVD drive.
Have the internal ribbon cable replaced if the drive cannot read the CD, or have the DVD drive replaced if a new cable does not help.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows 7
Click "Start," "All Programs," "Recovery Manager," and then "Recovery Manager." Click "Continue" if prompted by Windows 7. This will bring up the HP Recovery Manager window.
Click "Software Program Reinstallation" and then "Next."
This will bring up the HP Software Program Reinstallation window, which allows you to reinstall the programs that originally came with your HP Pavilion.
Click "Next" and then follow the instructions provided.
Restart your computer after the driver installation.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
Reinstall DVD Software Windows Vista
Click "Start," "All Programs," "PC Help and Tools" and then "Recovery Manager." This will bring up an HP window called Recovery Manager to help you recover HP Pavilion drivers and programs.
Click "Next" and then select "Yes" or "No" when prompted to perform a program recovery.
Select "Next" and follow the directions provided to recover and reinstall the DVD player software that came with your HP Pavilion.
HP Pavilion PC Laptop Blue Ray not working
Blu-ray disc technology continues to improve and advance, so simply having a Blu-ray player in your computer doesn't guarantee that all discs will play immediately.
The Hewlett Packard DV7 Entertainment Notebook has a Blu-ray player, but as the technology advances you have to keep the software and firmware on the system up-to-date to ensure compatibility.

Reboot your Pavilion notebook.
A minor miscommunication between the disc drive and Windows Vista or 7 may lead to a disc read error.
Rebooting clears your system's memory and forces Windows to reload all of your device drivers, which may resolve a minor kink.
Play your Blu-ray disc to see if the problem is solved.
Open QuickPlay and update it.
Double-click the "Update" button to open "Updates and Enhancements."
Double-click "Get the latest QuickPlay updates."
Select "Download now!" on the next screen and wait while the file downloads and installs.
Close and reopen QuickPlay and insert the Blu-ray disc again.

Update MediaStart regularly.
This program tracks updates for your Blu-ray player's firmware, the software coded onto the device to tell it what kinds of discs it can read.
Open MediaStart and select "Update your MediaStart." Updates are only listed when available, so if you don't see an update, check back in a few weeks.
Each update for the Blu-ray player enables you to play more recent discs, since some interactive features may not be compatible with older software.
Restart after each update.

Update your software on a disc-by-disc basis.
According to HP, some Blu-ray discs have special content protection and require new codes for you to play the movie.
These codes or disc-specific updates are stored on the disc.
If you are prompted to download a free update after inserting a disc, follow the prompts to do so. The updates will be different for each disc.

Check to make sure your player will play regular content if you continue to have issues with Blu-ray discs. It may be that the error is related to the drive, not the type of media.
Try a CD-ROM or a standard DVD to see if the disc responds.
If not, contact HP for a replacement or for drive-related troubleshooting.

Sir, i want to sound driver 845gv/gl intel i download many driver but not support, please help me


Hello,

You can play both Playstation and Playstation 2 games on PC using emulator softwares.We don't support piracy here so do this only if you have a original Playstation disc.And you will need to dump your bios from your own PS2,since the emulator needs those files to play the games on your pc.For further details on how to configure the emulators you can checkout the forums and official websites of the emulators themselves.

Here is the link for PS2 emulator http://pcsx2.net/downloads.php download the first one named
pcsx2 0.9.6 installer.And here is its configuration guide http://forums.pcsx2.net/Thread-Official-English-PCSX2-configuration-guide-v0-9-6

That was for Playstation 2,if you want to play only PlayStation 1 games then download epsxe from this page along with the config utility http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/psx/epsxe.html

Thanks for using Fixya!

I cannot get my super multi-blue (LG) to play blue-ray disc


It is possible you need an update, go to the manufacturer's website and see if there are any updates for it. you will most likely need the model and serial number to get the correct update.

My ps3 wont play the disc's i put in the blue light works fine but the games dont show up it just sits there


Try cleaning the discs first. If that does not fix the problem then try a quality bluray cleaner in the system itself. Sometimes the lens gets dirty and a cleaning will clear it right up. Good luck.

I purchased a Pioneer BDC Blu-Ray Burner, It will not play back on my Compaq-model SR55130NX Processor-AMD-64 X 2 Dual Core 3800+2.00 GHZ 894 Ram 32 Bit operating system I've down loaded trial software...


What version of windows are you using? if you are running windows XP you may as well give up because blue ray will not play on windows XP.

Even on vista blue ray will often not work correctly do to buggy HDCP coding and incompatability with various sound and video cards.

for full resolution HD playback the PC must have Vista, a blue ray decoder, a video card AND sound card with full HDCP compliance.

Now you know why most people dont bother with blue ray, especially on the PC, its an excercise in frustration.

Error code 0122 when trying to play blue ray disk on hdtv through hdmi cable


Hy guys

I had this problem earlier on today and after much searching found a solution that worked for me.

This error message relates to piracy issues. If you are running 2 screens at once (laptop monitor and HD TV) I guess it's seen as an easy way to pirate DVD's, Blu-rays etc.

Go into your graphics card settings (i think I did this in the end by adusting screen resolution (was hungover, there's probably a quicker way - this gave me access to my ATI graphics card settings). you should be given an option of taking your HD TV as the primary monitor and disabling the built in monitor.

This should resolve the conflict that caused the 0122 error message - there are no longer 2 monitors, I guess making it harder for the pirates to comoplete their dastardly deeds - aaaarrrr.

I hope this helps some peeps out - thought I'd return the favour for my own various questions.

GM5664 won't play Blue-Ray Discs


There are newer versions out Cyberlink PowerDVD out now. Perhaps getting their new software would fix your problem. However the newer versions of PowerDVD will cost you a few bucks. There may be free software that plays the Blu-Rays. I'd definitely look around before buying the software.
