Blow out PS3 thoughly with air and make sure it can breathe. They do not do well in entertainment centers. They overheat. Which one do you have the smaller one or the bigger HD one. The 40 gig one has a different videocard that likes to overheat and freak out a lot. (If you dont have a card reader but you have a 80 gig HD then thats the "new" small one, and its junk too. Send back to Sony if you need it fixed).

Easy fix :)
Go into Account Management ([Friends] [Account Management]), de-activated and activated again.
If this does not work, then your HDD is corrupt.

My ps3 freezes during saving and loading and it also sometimes wont recognize games or the friday the 13th blue ray movie either.


Hi

This is a common problem on the PS 3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service. However - if you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

The freezing during loading and saving are the early syptoms of this problem. It inevitably progresses until the unit will not load any games or play blueray at all.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks
