Disk Reads Error problem and/or disk freezing

When I play MLB 2007: The Show, the game acts weird when a batter is walked. The pitcher appears on screen and the screen pans around him, until the game freezes. The disk works perfectly in other playstations. Now the playstation says disk reads error on DVDs. Can anyone help?

Re: Disk Reads Error problem and/or disk freezing

Hello, first step should be to clean the optical pick up unit. There is a special CD for cleaning of the optical unit (wet method). If this does not provide a solution please come back and advice. Best regards, Arpi

My ps2 reads disks but it doesnt read good. cutscenes are always freezing and the game acts weird and freezes after 30 mins or more.i opened the top put a disk in and pressed the 2 buttons while it was on...

well mabey it may need dusted or mabey the copper strip is ripped or damaged or it could be the laser stuffed or it could be your disk isnt the correct format or the disks damage. If the back of the disk is purple it may mean it aint the right format. Just a few possibilities mate ;)

My console is really messed up it either doesn't read the game,or it reads the game and it has and error loading. But every once in a while the game works but it freezes while im playing.

Sounds like either a scratched disk or a broken lens. If the disk is scratched you need to purchase a new copy. If its not, then call Sony and you can send it in for a repair

Wii Disk Read Error

Call nintendo, if there is something in the USB port in the back of the system then take it out, it could cause freezing with out disc. If all of your disc are not playing ( Unable to read disc please refer to the wii operation manual ) its a problem with the disc drive in the system, set up a repair.

Game Freezes

It seems that your system is having trouble writing data to the HDD. Have you tried switching hard drives with your brother? It can be a corrupt sector or the entire disk. Try to format the disk and try again or switch your hard drive with your brother's or if you have the cash, buy a new hard drive for your ps3. Regards. Hope it helps.

PS: If you try using your brother's hard drive in your PS3 you will have to format it so I suggest you do a backup.
