Have you tried to restore the file system or database?
there is a "secret" menu that you can enter by holding the power button down. cant remember for how long, so i advise you to go to yourtube and find the vid where they show how to. ill cross my fingers that it will help ya with your problem.

and just so you know it... i also got read disk problems after the 3.00 update, and it truely messed it up after the 3.01 update, now it wont read anything unless i eject and insert the game a zillion times...

I normally play my ps3 through HDMI. I am currently in a hotel trying to use it on a tv with only component inputs. How can I change the video setting without seeing the menus?


all you need to do is connect your ps3 to the tv using your hdmi cable and hold the on button on the ps3 for 6 seconds. You will hear the initial beep then a second beep, this will reset the settings on the system and it will change the settings to match the tv being used.

Hard Reset procedure for the PS3 (as instructed by Sony CS).

Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves!

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).

4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
