Re: won't play PS3 games

I have a 60GB unit and it wont read any BD discs or games. I left my system on for about 1/2 hour and then it started to read the games. Ive done this twice now and it seems to work.

My ps3 wont play the game automatically when a disc is inserted. it goes to a multimedia menu when it comes on

Typically ps3s do not launch straight into the game. You do have to go through the menu and select the games portion, and then the game disc. This should launch your game. I have to do it every time I want to play a game.

Can't play games or movies

you have a disc read error on your ps3. you can either send it to sony and pay 150 if not under warrenty, or you can get a whole new disc drive for about 50-60 bucks on ebay. you can find a video on youtube on how to install it yourself. its pretty simple.

PS3 Home Menu

you can change the system settings to boot to disc when turned on. also if you don't see an icon for your game after you've inserted it, your laser may need to be cleaned or replaced.
