    This seems a common problem. When I first got the settings in, Rock Band played fine... except the microphone wasn't recognized. We navigated the system and it froze. Restarted and restored: And now it won't recognize either Rock Band or Skate, both brand new. So how do we get PS3 to start up when a disc is inserted?

Ps3 plays dvd but games don't load. Games do not even register as in the cd drive.


Please check if the games you want to play are on PLAYSTATION3 format. If not then they will not be played. Otherwise when you insert the disc the games start automatically

How do I insert memory card into nintendo 64? bought used unit for grandson and was thinking of getting a memory card becuase it seems it supposed to have one I bought a used donkey kongN64 and now it says...


The memory card plugs into the back of the controller.. i believe. No you do not need a memory card to play games, but you want one if you want to save your progress in games. Without a memory card to save progress, you will have to start a game over everytime you want to play it.

I am sorry I don't know what the expansoin pack is.... maybe a memory card, or rumble pack.

Wont play when i insert disks only the games on there


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu.

I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

Sony playstation 3 wont read or load game disc


Hi
You are covered by a 12 month warranty from Sony it sounds like the laser is not reading the discs but check to see if the auto start feature is turned on in the settings menu as then the game will automatically start when the disc is inserted
I hope this helps Nick
