Could be a dodgy disc. I suggest testing it on another computer.
I had a similar problem with a Dell computer while trying to load XP onto a clean hard drive. It would go so far and simply wouldn't go any further. I think it had something in the bios preventing it accepting anything other than than the official disc.
By experimenting I found if the hard drive already had an operating system on it then XP was accepted without trouble. I have a suspicion if I had removed the bios battery it might have worked with the clean drive.
troubleshooting advice below-try steps in order until the problem is resolved.
Be sure to check your disc to make sure it is flat. You can
check this by putting the disc upside-down on a flat surface. If the
disc is bowed up on any side or in the center, do not use the disc as it
may get stuck in the drive.
Make sure you are inserting the disc far enough for the drive
mechanism to activate. Discs must be inserted at least three-quarters of
the way into the drive, and often nearly all the way in, before the
drive will pull them in.
Make sure the disc is completely inserted in the drive. The
disc-insert cycle runs the motor for about 6 seconds. If, for whatever
reason, a disc is not completely inserted, the drive will reverse and
push the disc back out of the drive.
Since the entry slot can be tight at first, give the drive 1 or 2
seconds to accept the disc and pull it in on its own. If the drive
struggles with injecting discs or injects them part-way then stops,
inserting a disc multiple times should correct the issue.
Restart the macbook.
Do not use discs that have anything attached to them or dangling from them (such as "sweeper" or cleaning discs).
If the drive repeatedly does not insert media fully, or accept
media at all, please contact Apple, contact an Apple-Authorized Service
Provider, or make an appointment with an Apple Retail Store for
additional troubleshooting, evaluation, or service.
i have seen this before... there is a little eye inside the ps3 bluray drive that senses when a disc enters and starts turning wheels with rubber feet on them to pull the disc in. when that eye goes bad for what ever reason the only way to get it to accept discs is to force it in slightly and it will spread the acceptance arms and pull it in. if it will not eject the disc correctly then the drive has been disassembled and needs to be reseated until it function right.
the acceptance eye is fairly cheap to buy online but can be a pain to replace if you dont know what you are doing.
The manual says "C13/Disc Error:
The system cannot read the discinformation correctly.mEject the MD once, then insert it again." It seems this error turns up when the system cannot read the disc properly, one reason for which is a dirty/dusty lens. Try a minidisc lens cleaner if you haven't already.
Try this....after a lot of frustration and research, what i found on the internet
for this problem was usless. I tried holding down the eject button for
15 seconds to reset the disc drive, still it would'nt accept the disc.
As i literally picked up the phone to ring sony, as the ps3 was on
standby i pressed the eject button multiple times and heard 2 beeps
each time, still the system stayed on standby. After that i then tried
just putting the disc in as normal as its on standby and the system
booted automatically and accepted my disc. I hope this helps others, as
mine now works perfectly.
Insert the recovery disc, (if auto run starts up, just close it)
Go to Start>Run and type cmd and hit enter.
In the DOS command window, type sfc /SCANNOW and hit enter.
That will check your Windows files against the Windows files on the
disc. If it finds corrupted or missing ones, it will repair or replace
them. You will not lose any data or files this way. (If it will accept
the disc again)
If you have posted the correct model of writer, then it only supports the writing of DVD+R and DVD+RW discs, but CD-R and CD-RW disc writing are supported, and it should play all forms of DVD, so it won't burn DVD-R and RW discs, but if it wont play all types then try a cd/dvd cleaner, but to be honest when writers start playing up the lens is normally faulting and a replacement drive will be required.
