You need to get a new disc drive.
dvds still work because it uses a different part of the drive for dvds

Our ps3 quit recognizing dvd's It sill plays games and bluerays


Try setting your resolution to 480i/p and see if you can play one then.
I've also heard of turning off dvd upscaling, although your ps3 should be able to upscale your dvds.

MY PS3 will play movies but will not play games?


the blu ray player uses a magnified lens ( likely used in ps3 games too) which is not used when playing ps2 or regular dvds...why they work, any spec or suface wear to the lens will cause the system not to read the discs) , a cleaning disc wont work as the ps3 wont recognize what it is and not play it... only solution i found was to send in for service , which costs @ 150 bucks! I hope this helps

It doesn't recognise the cds inserted


Does it recognize regular dvds?
Does it recognize games?

If it does not recognize games, but will play dvds then the blu-ray laser is bad. It will have to be replaced.

If it wont play either, then the drive is bad and must be replaced. YOu can get noth parts on ebay, but they are a bit pricey.

The PS3 will not recognize games or movies. You load it and it will not show in up in the menu of options. It powers and shows the normal menu but does not recognize games or dvds regular or blue ray.

My ps3 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.
