Just bought a playstation 2 hitman cotracts game from america,but when i insert the disc it says insert a playstation or playstation format disc.are the games from america different to australia.if not how...

No, the American Ps2 game will not load on Australian one because in Australia the TV system mode is PAL and the in America its NTSC standard.You can't load any game until your Ps2 is modded.You can buy a modulator than can convert PAL to NTSC and vice versa.

My playstation loads dvds and playstation 2 games but when i put a playsation 3 game in the game disc icon doesnt show so i cant click it to start my game

Try different ps3 games and if your system doesn't load any of them then that means the laser is bad and would need to be replaced. You can also just replace the dvd drive as well and you buy either the laser or the whole drive off of Ebay.

Will not load games

I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not load 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.
