    yes but im confused which folder are you refering to? There are 3 sub-folders in the (GAME) folder (with the controller icon). Nothing seems to happen...

  • vinny esposito Apr 11, 2008

    it just says game data utility and lists my saves of games ive played. When i go to the particular folder for the the game and open it , it just says information or delete..thats it......I remember the start of the game comming up before when it worked. I would nt have to mess with the folders.

My ps3 wont load ps3 games


Hi,

This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.

For a full breakdown on the issues involved please view this FixYa Tip.

Thanks for using FixYa.

DVD play on my 60gb PS3 but games wont!


It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

If you're just out of warranty by a few days sometimes Sony will do a courtesy repair. It doesn't hurt to ask.

Ps3 wont load any games


Wow, someone who tried a lens cleaner first before asking, cool!!!
Alright, it still sounds like it might be the laser lens, but the dust is probably built up a bit more than a lens cleaner can deal with. This happens, and it sucks. But seeing as both your systems are still fairly new, they should also both still be under warranty, Contact sony and see about getting them repaired. Your only other option would be to open the cases and clean the lens' by hand with a Q-tip and some Iso Alcohol VERY CAREFULLY.
