When trying to play a DVD, we insert the disc and it says loading. Then it tells us that it is the wronge type of disc.


your disk and player must be compatable, you cant play dvd's in a blue ray player, you cant use blue rays in a dvd player, you cant use ps4 games in an xbox and you cant put cd's in a record player... hope that helps!

My ps3 will play ps3 games but not dvds. it loads the dvd then turns black. Any suggestions?


The ps3 blu-ray laser is a 3 part system (cd, dvd, and blu-ray) More than likely the dvd portion of the laser is damaged.

I'd recommend using the ps3 to play games / blu-rays until the laser completely fails before replacing.

Here's a website with some tips and advice.

PS3 isn't reading games/blu-ray/ or DVD discs, only audio CD's?


this is a symptom of blue ray lens failure (BDL)

if you are still under warranty, I suggest have the unit or BD (drive) replaced.

American DVDs unable to play for my PS3


At this time the region lock on ps3 only includes DVD and ps1-2 titles. Although some games will have the 80028F10 error. Most ps3 and blue ray will play without problems, my only suggestion being that if you are in the US, make sure you get a US ps3.

hope this helps.
