Same problem for me, an update should be released soon to fix the problem. the game seems to randomly work at times however, so you can get lucky by keep trying. also there is a temporary fix. after going and getting stuck on the downloading game settings, unplug then replug your modem. after this the game should work for a few games, but you'll have to do this everytime you wanna play.

hopefully that helps, and hopefully a patch will be released

Ps3 wont read games or dvds what should i do?


I HOPE EVERYONE READS THIS AS IT'S LIKELY A (FREE) SOLUTION TO YOUR WOES.

My ps3 recently conked out on me and the local game store (and the internet) told me it was a broken laser.

I told them that I couldn't play video games, not even ps2 games. They still said it was a broken laser.

When I found out it would be 140 bucks to have it replaced and installed I decided to just download some demos.

HERE'S WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING.

I went on the playstation network (psn) and downloaded a game demo, installed it, and played it. When I quit out of the demo, the laser was reading and I could play games!

When I turned off the system and tried again the next day, again it didn't work.

I followed the same process. Went into a downloaded game, this time quit right after the demo loaded, and sure enough, the laser was working again!

Every time I quit a game I have to follow this process, but every time it works, too.

So again:

1. download and install a psn game or game demo
2. put the disc of the game you want to play
3. load the psn game or demo as if you were going to play it
4. quit the demo as soon as you get to the start menu of it
5. go and play the game you wanted to, sucka, cause it works now!!!

I hope this works for you, and if it does, spread the word!

I can't download upadate 7.01 for call of duty just keeps giving me error message. I am connected to the internet.


If you are stuck on the Downloading game settings screen after clicking Find Game, this may be the fix for you. I did this on my PS3 and it worked.

1) Go into network settings and then make sure everything is custom, no automatic.

2) Find the IP address for the PS3. This is the problem!

3) Set the IP address to 192.168.1.100. If COD4 does not work, change the 100 in the IP to a higher number (101,102,103 etc.) (The closer to 100, the better.) Then try again.

This simple thing worked for me, and should work for you.
Reason: Most online games use the IP address from the PS3, but COD4 doesn't. The designers of the game made it so that COD4 scans for its own IP address. It scans from 192.168.1.100 up and that's why if you CAN get COD4 to work with the Downloading Game Settings box, it takes an hour. By changing it to ....100 you are forcing COD4 to choose that IP address which is the fastest one.

PS3 game wont work


playing a game lots for extented periods of time is knowen to damage te disk. this is not verry common but it can happen, especily if you have been leving the game on the lobby screen while u go out for dinner. leaving the disk somewhere warm can also do this. unfortunately the only way to solve this is to buy a new disk.

Call of Duty 4 for xbox 360


i phoned microsoft about the problem, cuz i've been getting the same thing on other games too and at one point not even connecting on the dash, but when i test the connectivity everything is fine. the person who i spoke to at microsoft said "its a problem with x-box live, and they are working 24/7 to try to resolve this. it is a problem which started x-mas 07" looks like were all going to have to grin and bare it for a while because by the sounds of it they aint got a clue whats up with it.
