    If the software is seriously damaged, you will need to but another copy. the lens will not be able to read pass a major surface scratches.

Two products I recommend for cleaning and repairing CD's and DVD's are Windex and Brasso.
Windex will clean the disc very well. Brasso will polish the disc surface and remove scratches. Use a felt or cotton cloth, an old t-shirt should be fine. Lay the disc flat on a bench on top of an old tea towel. Keep wetting the polishing cloth up with Brasso and give the disc a severe polish. Wash off the Brasso under the tap and dry the disc then clean it with Windex.
Final step - Make a backup of the disc.
I tried toothpaste like some people recommend, it didn't work. I tried Jif and it made things worse. Brasso is the answer. $8 at the local Supermarket and you get enough of the stuff to repair about 50 discs.

If it is not seriously scratched you do have a chance to save it . Go to your local gaming store and ask for a disk fixer or disk repair kit which can cost about $8 for a cheap one or about $30 for a good one. The good thing about these fixers or repair kits is it can also be used on DVDs as well. Hope I helped.

Got the game in dec wont play got a second game and it wont load said disc unrecanisable

You chould check your disc, when you get that error, it means that the disc is unreadable, lol. Which means it cannot be read, so you can\'t play your game.

Check the back of the game disc for scratches or dust/other that shouldn\'t be there.

How much free memory does your Ps3 have? Are the games used or scratched?
You need a certain amount of memory to play ps3 games. Scratched up games can't be read.
Did you put the disc on the right side? Lay the ps3 down and the ps3 game disc picture should be facing up.
