My playstation slim wont load anything


Clearly there is a problem with the Blu-ray disk laser or decoder circuity in your PS3's Blu-ray drive. The drive uses a completely separate head to read CDs and CD-ROMs, so those only confirm that the drive isn't completely dead. Whether the failure was caused by upgrading to System 3.X, or not, is a matter of conjecture at this point. Lots of people upgraded and did not have this problem, but a small percentage did. Either way, given that your PS3 is so new, I would advise making a system backup to a USB drive, and then either returning it to the place of purchase (if there is still time), or sending it to Sony for replacement. No one seems to have been able to resolve this problem, with or without Sony's help. Any replacement PS3 that Sony sends you will be running System 3.15, and be able to read Blu-ray disks.

Drive not spinning properly When I insert a CD, the drive can't spinning properly. So, the data can't read.


If your CD is no longer working properly, then it only mean that it has to be replaced. It is already defective.
It is cheaper to get a replacement, than get it repaired.

Is there a way i can play warlords battlecry without disk?


yes their is a way but without the original disk you may not have any luck.

but their are things called cd emulators.
If basicaly tricks your computer into thinking you have a cd/dvd drive on your comptuer you really don't.

you then can find or make .images or .roms of your cd using programs like nero burning rom. you can load and save the disk on your computer that way. Then you use one of your cd-emulators and load that rom into it. Doing that your comptuer things your disk that you have bought is in your computer.
But thier is no legal way to trick your computer into thinking you have a disk for something aleady installed on your computer.

please take the time to rate me

Disk drive wont read Ubuntu disk


Make sure you are booting from CD-ROM and not the hard drive, If that doesn't help get out your windows CD...run it until right after it formats your hard drive then stop your computer and boot with the Ubuntu disc...
You will love Ubuntu...it clean not bloated, straight forward, plenty of free help and software, everything you want is available -free and works better.
...good luck (there is a learning curve, but not bad) please leave rating

Sayes disk err can read disk


HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more.

Jammed cd drive


  • Touch the eject button on the PLAYSTATION 3 system front for 10 seconds or longer to force the disc to eject. After removing and before reinserting a disc into the PLAYSTATION 3, turn off the system, and then turn on the system again to resume use.
  • If the disc cannot be inserted, you may need to send your system in for service, please click on the link below.

    Disk read errors


    Try to use cd rom lens head cleaner, the one with the small brush at the middle of the disk, never use cleaner using liquid solution. the best cleaning method is to open the cd and clean manually the laser lens using a cotton buds, the lens are so delicate so don't apply too much force. you can easily locate the lens in the cd case, it is a round bluish lens. cd rom cleaner works best when your unit is clean!! Huhh? Run it once a day, regularly, its like sweeping the floor of your house before you work for that day. Cd rom cleaning depends on playing back the No 1 and jumps to no 3 tracks, cleaning takes place on track 2 of the disc, you cannot clean if you cannot play the unit.. get that?
