Your UMD drive is probably worn out. Try to take a cotton swab put a little distilled water on it. look for the UMD laser and gently clean it off. Also try to move it to the outside.

If this does not work you can get a new one on ebay for a decent price.Let me know if this works or if you want to get a new drive.

When i put the disk in it wont load so i can play it what is wrong you can hear it spining


The lens on the PS3 might have developed a fault which is preventing it from reading a disc. Try cleaning the lens with a dvd disc cleaner first.If you can hear is spinning then its most likely a lens fault.

Ma psp is workin slower n its shaking


its shaking from spining the disk faster to try reading it could mean the lazer eye is dirty, same thing with load times, hard time reading the UMD means slower load times for games.

(DO AT OWN RISK!!!) Qtips are a psp owners friend. get some water or rubbing alcohol on 1 end of the Qtip (not alot, just barly damp, not driping wet) find a nice light to so you can see the lazer eye in the disk load area , slide the damp side of the Qtip in there and wipe the eye a little bit, then use the dry end to get the rest of the dust, dampness off the eye and let it sit to dry for about 10 mins or more. turn it on and try it out after the 10min or more drying time. i do this with my psp/ps2 and any other thing that useis CDs/DVDs or has a lazer eye and it usely does the trick.

hope it worked. if not you may need to take it to a repair shop.

The disk cant be read


try the disk on a different wii and load the saved file on memory card and try it from there.if the game works fine with another account then the account that your trying to load is corrupted.if the game does read on a different system then it is your wii.(doubt it but is possible)if the game doesn't work with a new account then it is the cd.

I get an error message everytime I try to load my season.


it might be the motor on your xbox 360 laser some games require the motor to spin faster during certian parts of certian games i have also noticed that sometimes the magnet that sits on top of the laser weakens causing the same problems because the motor relies on the magnet to be able to hold the game disk to the cerface of the motor as the game disk is spining

Ps2 slim


That clicking noise you are hearing is the laser trying to read the disk. There are a few reasons why this is not happening. Either your laser is dirty and needs to be cleaned, or your laser is damaged and can no longer read the games.

I strongly recommend cleaning your laser and making sure your games are clean as well. Keep your ps2 in a ventalated area.

If this does not work, you may have to have your ps2 repaired. If it is not covered by your warranty, you will probably save money in buying a new system. It will most likely cost more to get it repaired.

I hope this was able to fixya problem and Happy Gaming!

Game shark problems


Gameshark is a 3rd party disk and sometimes depend how the disk was made.The laser inside is calibrate to read the format specified from the manufacture (SONY) and quite few time the laser ned to be adjusted a little bit to make work but i do suggest to try another disk if still doing the same .The reading issue is a common problem for ps2.If your machine is a slim one i suggest to replace laser since are not expensive and can give more boost to your game

Psp will not load in any games


"tap" not hit.. the back of the psp, (where the game goes in on the back) and see if that works.. that will usually get the laser to read the disk.. perhaps the umd is dirty..  only tap on it "lightly" when you hear it loading.. i know that sounds stupid, but it worked for me countless of times.
