Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

My PS3 IS NOT READING ANY DISC( GAMING OR MOVIE) THAT I LOAD. I HAVE UNPLUGED AND WENT THROUGH ALL MENU OPTIONS.


your laser has probably had it, what size ps3? alot of the 40bg ps3's died out with the laser not reading anything, it is repairable by ordering a new one from ebay not hard to do wither just open ps3 up and remove old one and gently put new one in. i have had a 40gb, a 60gb and an 80gb do that to me, the more you play the harder you strain the lense that reads them all.

I have a 40GB ps3 and when i put mlb 10 the show in from blockbuster(rented)the ps3 did not read the disc, although it does read DVDs and has internet access working. What should I do?


Blockbuster "Cleans" their DVDs/BlueRay Discs/Etc....

.......Using a Buffer-type device to basically rub all the scratches off........
and fill them in as well.........

........So.........

Just take the disc back and ask for a new or better copy to rent........they won't charge you again and they'll extend your rental days to accomodate your inconvenience.
That Should Solve The Problem!

Please Rate Me & fill out a quick testimonial, k.

Thank You! I appreciate it.

Ps3 games wont work on my ps3.. but plays ps2 games and dvds play...


How much free memory does your Ps3 have? Are the games used or scratched?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You need a certain amount of memory to play ps3 games. Scratched up games can't be read.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Did you put the disc on the right side? Lay the ps3 down and the ps3 game disc picture should be facing up.
