This is a laser problem. Blu-ray drives use a laser with a magnifying lens, and any dust on them at all will cause problems. These lasers are also known to fail and cost around $50 for a new one on ebay. You can also do a fan test to blow out your system. this works much better than using an air compressor. To do this, turn off the power switch on the back of your console, hold your finger on the eject button, then flip the power switch on the back of the system to the "on" position. When the fan comes on release the eject button. The fan should then go into overdrive and run hard for about 20-30 seconds. Keep in mind, if your system is pretty dirty this is going to blow dust all over everything around it,
so do it away from other electronics! Good luck...

XBOX 360 lets you install games to the hard drive to make for easier loading to put less stress on the system by saving the PS3 does the same thing, however they dont let you install every game just exclusive titles, so I would try that before assuming it's your system.

Not unless you have an early model PS3 that was backwards compatible. The newer versions of the Ps3 do not have backwards compatibility. Sorry.

Ratchet and clank will not play on my ps3


Get a music CD and put it in the machine, then press the triangle and select import. You may have to use more than one CD to get it to work. There are some files missing that are needed for Ratchet & Clank which are on music CD's.

It worked for me.

Ratchet and clank future: tools of destruction game doesnt play


I have read through some forums for you, and it appears that there is a bug that reads your disk as full even if it is not. The fix is to add at least 500MB of game data to your harddrive, then it will work. I think the bug was on the american version of the game. It read an almost empty harddrive as full.

I hope this helps
