    Yeah, I have the same problem as you guys. But sometimes it seems like it's working then the disc starts. Then when i start playing it just randomly freezes.

    game starts up fine.. 5 mins of playing then next time it needs to load just goes blank for like 5 mins... then comes up either disc read error or just auto restarts. when it auto restarts the game that was already in the ps3 isnt recognised untill its taken out then put back in

I would be careful about cleaning your lens because Sony has been known to void any warranty you have when cleaning because of not using "sony products". I to have the same problem but mine came up disc read error only after a month and i cant play anything either? even thoguh I dont have a solution I just offer a warning about cleaning it.

Playstation 3

It is the blu ray drive..
Buy a cd lens cleaner and insert it and let it clean the lense..
if its not that then its the diode in the laser and a new one costs 45-50$ ebay. Or if you dont want to tear it apart a whole new drive is 125$
Send it to sony and they charge 150$ plus to fix it..
or sell it on ebay.. 60gb sell at about 200$ broken

Games not loading from disc

Start by cleaning the UMD drive, you can do this with an alcohol-free CD wipe wrapped around a cotton bud (Q-tip) or preferably with an air duster (available from any good hardware or electronics store). Next clean the disk(s), you can do this by turning the centre of the disk with one finger and holding an alcohol-free CD wipe to the disk surface with another, however you can buy UMD cleaning tools from most large game stores that make the job much easier.
