My ps3 wont load any of my games but still plays my dvds


First off, have you tried playing Blu-Ray movies/games instead of DVD's?
If you have and only the DVD's work then it sounds like the "blu ray" part of the drive has died.

In the PS3 blu ray drive there is a lens for blu ray movies/games and a seperate one for dvd/cd's. Sounds like the blu ray lens one broke.
The cost for repair of this $150 dollars if not under warranty.
Now before calling sony try this.
  1. Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.

  2. First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format the PS3! Yup, again this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.

  3. Buy a Blu-Ray cleaner and try it.

Sadly if these don't work, you will need to give Sony a call, and have that coffin mailed your way.

PS3 wont play blu ray or PS3 GAMES


Certainlyit's a problem with your blu-ray reader and, if it'snotcoveredby warranty, unfortunatelly you will need to buy a new one(youcan findcheap ones in eBay =])
Please, try the following:
  • Reupdating your system firmware via USB Device (download the update from Playstation Website)
  • Restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files !!)
if this doesn't work ,contactSony support centre for possible hardware issues checking.

Will playstation 3 play blu ray movies off usb memory stick? all other movies worked but blu ray one didn't work.


the PlayStation 3 can read just about any usb memory stick and play can movies from them, since a usb's bandwidth is significantly lower then the ps3 hard drive it's recommend to copy the movie to the ps3's hard drive.

also it matters how the movie was converted. some converted movies wont play on the ps3 no matter what codec your using to encode the movie with.
