    i found a way for the ps3 to play the ps3 games and blu ray disks. i go into a game demo, get out and then the ps3 game or blu ray movie appears and works. it's weird, but it's the only way the ps3 game can appear, cuz i tried so many things and waited and all that, but this seems to be one of the ways it'll difinately work. so i suggest you try it, if you have a similiar problem.
