System can load games, with the exception of one

Try to install the game onto the HDD drive.

To do this simply insert the game onto the drive and go to the menu where it shows the game disc.

Press Y on the image of the game and select "Install to Hard Drive".

After the game finishes install select "Play From Hard Drive"

If the game fails to install try cleaning the disc with warm water NOT hot or cold water but WARM. After that dry the disc with a soft towel or some sort of SOFT cloth by wiping away from the center of the disc.

It could be the laser needs cleaning, or the game disc itself make sure there are no scratches on the game disc underneath. if other games play and just that game wont then its possible it could be scratched and need of a clean.
