This seems to be a very common & recurring problem. It is the "Yellow Light Of Death". For whatever reason, the game cannot read or recognize the hard drive. There are many reasons that you can get YLOD, but it boils down to one thing... you're PS3 is kaput. Here's something you can try that may help: With the solid red light showing, hold both the power button & disc eject button simultaneously! You'll get a single beep, then a double beep. When you hear the double beep, let go. You should get a 6 point menu on your TV. Try option number 3 first. As a last resort, try number 6. This opyion will erase all your saved info, but it is a shot at rescuing your console. If 6 works for you, you can access all your downloaded games & demos at the PlayStation Store. Trophies, too. Hope this helps. If you need a walk-through, message me here & I'll see if a can be of more help to you
