Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Follow these steps when you are facing "disc wont read" problem
Step 1:Remove the disc from the system.
Step 2:Use a cloth to clean in small circles around the disc (not in a big circle going around the disc). Use DVD or CD disc cleaner if available. If you use cleaner, use a different dry cloth to clean the disc no more than three minutes after application.
Step 3:Verify that there are no disc-destroying marks on the disc. Deep scratches and chips in the middle of the disc can render a disc inoperable.As your Playstation 3 is used more and more, the lens that reads Blue-ray discs can become dirty. This will lead to discs skipping or not being read by the console. If you find this is happening on your Blue-ray discs, either movies or games, you may need to have your console cleaned. Be careful when attempting any sort of cleaning of your console, as improper handling will further damage the Playstation 3. Contact a member of Playstation Support for information on console maintenance.
Thank you !!

SOURCE: unable to read discs on ps3
This is a common problem with the PS3 unfortunately and is related to problems with either the Bluray drive or laser pick up. You can sometimes resolve it by cleaning the laser.
