Sounds like the optical drive/CD reader has failed on the system especially if it turns out the same result regardless of the disk you've inserted. It looks like you'll have to buy a replacement optical drive or buy a completely new system. If you're only trying the one disk, it may just need cleaning or replacing.

After inserting the correct cd , computer is asking for the cd crom ??


This is happening when it needs the crack to be inserted ..somehow it does not recognize the disk ..In original these games were made to be played directly from the disk ..Inserting the disk will not fix it cause the files it is looking for aren't there.What you need is the crack for the game ..it is just an executable file ..that need to be copied in the director of the game ..and will replace the original start file ..
if you find it ..download and copy to C drive /program files..in the folder of the game ..it will ask if you want to replace the file..and you have to confirm the action .

Hi - When I insert a gaming or music disk into my PS3 it makes a noise as if it wants to eject the disk again. This either happens or otherwise it wont recognize that a disk has been inserted. This...


Hello, It's possibly lens calibration problem, sometimes that happens when there's a lot of sudden movements during transportation, sometimes the use of scratched disks tend to trigger the Error correction algorithm of the PS3 reader, putting the reading lens into a lot of stress that heats up the EC chip and games are not read properly, causing the game to fail loading and making unusual sounds.
I recommend not to use scratched disks, try to use only PS3 game disks only to extend your console's life, and take good care of all your disks, keep them clean.
The thing is as technology improves Disks format changes to put more information into a single disk, and precision looking for data is more critical as data sectors are closer to each other, so scratched or dirty media tends to return errors.
Hope I helped, and try to seek some professional help on calibrating/substituting your old reader.

make sure the cd is being inserted the proper way, the console will spit it out if its inserted wrong.

if that does not work, the cd catcher inside the console could be miss catching or broken. if the problem happens with other games, take it to your local game store as see if they can fix it, or if they can send it for a small fee to the manufacture to fix.

Won't reconize disk in player


Well here is your resolution for your problem.

As you saying that when you insert any CD or DVD in Player its shows NO DISK.

Well Sometime what happen is if a CD contains are not compatible with Player than it wont work with it.

Or if you had burn that CD or DVD from your personal computer or laptop but it is not burn in proper format than also it wont work in PLAYER.

Well even if CD or DVD is having any scratches on it or it is Used uncounted enumerable times than also sometimes this things happen and it wont work in PLAYER.

Well before Inserting any CD or DVD in Player Just check the above mentioned points.

If everything is ok with the CD or DVD but than also its shows the same problem than get the CD or DVD cleaner liquid spray or even you can use Spirit to clean the CD or DVD and than Insert it.

After doing all this but if its shows no result in it than go to the company dealer and ask him to change the head of the player and you wont face this problem afterward for sure.

if you still have nay quarries regarding the same or any other you may reply me.

This could be down to ur laser in ur cd-drive.. Could be many of things like Disc data corrupted etc etc. Sometimes if this happens i use a cd cleaner disc tht cleans the laser. These are very cheap.. But down to last resourt... Buy another version of the game. But if tht dosnt work then its your cd drive.

The disk wont load


What happens if you put the disk in and run the greeting card program? Does it ask you to insert the CD?

If you have AutoRun turned off for the CD drive, nothing will happen when you put it in. And most software install disks are not bootable, usually only OS and Anti-Virus/Anti-Malware disks.

Also, if you have two CD/DVD drives, try the other one.

My laptop will not read disks. I am trying to play a game and the error message comes up "please insert a disk"


well two things here

1) The drive needs cleaning, use a CD Drive cleaner It is a CD with a little brush grafted into the CD. Run this to clean the scanner eye
2) the disk is faulty, check for finger marks on surface.

Essentials for disks

Scanner cleaner
Disk cleaner fluid
Scratch repair kit

It may be that the laser is aligning itself after trying to run the disc, you may need to run a cd cleaning and aligning disc in the playstation, although, it maybe that the laser is on it's way out.
