    I was playing Madden 09, got tired of playing it so i decided to quit and play my Grand Turismo. I put the G T in the system and it didnt read, i tried it over and over again and it wouldnt read. I then put the Madden back in and it would read, neither would any blue ray or dvd's.

    I had a similar problem with the PS3 not reading any disc, BlueRay, DVD or CD so I called the help line mentioned below and they have been very helpful and will take the Box away and replace the Laser with an upgraded one. I have had the PS3 over a year and it is still being fixed under warranty. Well worth giving them a go if you have a problem,

    All of the sudden (after 2 months) the PS3 won't read any disks. I'll try the lens clening kit as a solution before returning it for service under the warranty.

Any regular CD or DVD lens cleaning disc will work on the PS3. Try that solution. They're only $5 at an electronics store.

I have recently purchased a ps3, about 2/3 weeks ago, with it i brought call of duty 4. I brought the ps3 mainly for online gaming and cod4 works perfectly. I then purchased fifa 08 and tried to play...

The Fifa 08 game has problems if you are not using a "HD" output. So if you don't have a Hi-def TV then don't buy this game (It is why i didn't buy the PS3)! I am not sure about the other game.
