Ps3 wont play nba 2k10 all of a sudden why but

Turn on your ps3. In the main menu of the ps3 go to "Game Data Utilities". Delete the Nba 2k10 file. It should start playing again and you saved files should still be there.

My ps3 wont run ps2 games

The reason why ur ps3 40gb wont run ps2 games is because its only a 40gb. If u had a 80gb ps3 then u could play ps2 games.

Ps3 games wont work on my ps3.. but plays ps2 games and dvds play...

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.
