When using a hd cable for games no sound except a horrible wail?


Maybe the blu-ray/game part of your drive is failing, which won't read the sound properly. I had a drive that wouldn't read any audio, but did play the video.

Any solutions ? >> my Xbox is reading the games as DVD Film ...?


Without opening your console up eject the disk tray and blow in it to remove any dust on the laser lens.
If that doesnt work, then im afraid you would need to open up console, and open up the disk drive and clean laser with some rubbing achol.
An update would not cause your xbox to not work...

My PS3 froze last night during a game of Black Ops, since then my console's decided it doesn't want to play games anymore, Here's a list of what it will play; Music and Films saved to the HDD Music...


There are many reasons to cause PS3 frozen when playing games. Do you know, it's waste your time and money if you send to somewhere repair - because the same problems will be back after then. The best way is to learn the repair techniques of yourself.
There is a PS3 DIY Repair Guide: The author use text and video to show you how to use your hands to open your console and do some maintenance and fixes, at last you are amazing that why you can do that yourself. The best part is you can help your friends too!

Does not read or recognise any games or films


If you are having this problem then the good nerws is that the drive is not entirely faulty it is the laser that is slightly off. You can fix it with a good guide or you can send it in.

Games / films wont load ,everything else ok


When you close the lid with a game inside, do you hear the laser move down the track to attempt to read the disc? If so, you have a bad laser... it's pretty common on the PS2 systems. You can find a new laser for $29 at the following website:

My PS2 does not read game DVDs but plays DVD films


You may need to clean and readjust the laser, which is painstakingly long and hard. As there are like 7 or 8 different version numbers of the PS2 each one has a slightly different internal configuration, guides can easily be found by typing in "PS2 Disk Read Error" on a search engine like www.google.com

Sorry I couldn't help you more, I tried to fix my own PS2 about a year ago and ruined the motor drive for the tray, so will not touch or condone such unless your pretty good with small parts and electronics.
