I personally had the exact same problem with my PS3. I had a game freeze and I had to do a hard reset by holding in the power button for several seconds. It was during CoD MW2 although I doubt that has anything to do with it. After I started it back up it refused to read any disc.

Here are some possible solutions in the order you should try them.
Try a full system restore if you don't mind losing the data.
Send it to Sony, its most likely an internal hardware issue with the blu-ray. (Mine was)
Buy a new PS3 as my friend did.

Hope you figure this out.

when you next turn on your system you will have to quickly hold your finger down on the on/off buttons simutaniously for around 4-5 secs till you hear some beeping noises, hopefully this will start again with no problems.

There is really big chance for an Xbox 360 to completely ruin a game disc if it was moved while the disc is spinning inside, even the slightest bump or vibration could higly cause for a disc to be scratched. This also happens with other optical drives which has spinning motion, say DVD/CD players and other game consoles.

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.

Disc error


well, this might help.

turn the console off (standy by, leave the switch on the back on). make sure the controller is plugged in. hold the power button. you'll hear a beep and then should hear two quick beeps (not three, if you hear three, try again). this works for me about 75% of the time.

now you should see a screen with 6 options. pick restore files. click yes and let it do its magic. this may work, it may not.

Screen froze,now wont read any discs


if your system is only 5 weeks old PS3 factory warranty covers all defects in materials and workmanship for 1 year from purchase date. there are some inclusions and exclusions which can be accessed at http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/PS3/Warranties
but if you have any implied warranties from the store you purchased it at you should hit them up first to see what they'll do for you

Unknown disc error


You need to clean the reading head. When doing this you need to be very careful about static electricity. And never run the unit with anything more than the lid off.
First there are 3 screws on each side that take a side cover off.
Second there are 2 more screws that hold the lid on. Once the screws are removed lift the back of the lid first and tilt forward to clear the front switches.
Third; Remove the top of the DVD unit, to do this there are two screws and two tabs that hold the top on the DVD unit.
Fourth; To clean I used a vacum, but you can use canned air. But be very careful. These are very delicate parts.
Do not let the vacum touch any of the electronic parts. Do not do this with the unit plugged in. Before you test the Player put the top of the DVD unit back on. You can leave the main lid off at this point.

Good luck,
