That has nothing to do with the software, it has only be coincidence that it happened at the same time. This is a lens problem.

Try first unplugging the PS power cord for ten minutes, to reset the console.

This probably wont fix the problem.

Use a cleaner disk like the one here.


If that does not work, then the pickup is damaged, in that case contact Sony:

Have you tried using a disc that's intended to clean the laser heads? I'm thinking the discs you burned may have introduced some debris. An inspection of the disc compartment with a flashlight may yield some help too. Otherwise, there is no reason this would happen due to downloading a product from a licensed store.

You option would be to try these and if that doesn't help at all do a full system reset. Details will be on teh PS3 site.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

PS3 not loading games, CD's or Blueray discs. Have swapped over blue ray drive and still not loading so we know it is not a drive fault. Restored PS3 to factory settings and still not loading discs. Blue...


The problem itself has not been solved but after more investigation I have found out that this is currently un-repairable.
This is because the console itself has a hardware blueray drive failure due to manditory firmware 3.00 released by Sony and there is currently no fix in place.
From what I can see on the net it looks like Sony maybe being sued over this issue. Sony has also stated that they are now looking into this firmware update to see what went wrong, they have not yet made any further comment.

PS3 Error message...


This is the error code for disk errors: "An error occurred during the start operation. (8001002B)". If the disc is clean, maybe the laser is dirty. Use a lens cleaning CD to give the laser a clean (cheap to buy). You can also try deleting the temporary game data (using Game Data Utility) and reinstall the game.

I have a ps3 and it will play any other games but cod 5


This is a tough one to diagnose, I'd recommend trying to clean the blu-ray drive with a cd / dvd cleaner cd.

Try this first, since it's easy to do and we'll go from there.

My PS3 Games wont show up in the games list


Return under warranty.
the blu ray laser will have been slightly overheated and as a result will need to be replaced.
