Hi there, it sounds like your blu ray laser has become faulty. Unfortunately this is a very common problem for the PS3 and there is not much that can be done about it. New lasers can be bought but they are difficult to fix. You could buy a new drive from somewhere like ebay at a cost of around £60. They are much easier to fit than the lasers themselves but you must make sure you keep the circuit board on your blu ray drive and swap it to the replacement drive as this is paired to the motherboard and will not work if it is not with the original motherboard.

Hope this helps you out and thank you for using FixYa

How to rip Blu-ray DVD on Mac for Free


Now that Blu-ray players are becoming more common in the living room, so are the Blu-ray DVD movies we watch on them. To rip a Blu-ray disc on Mac, you need an External Blu-ray Writer to enable your Mac read Blu-ray disc, and then downloaded the free MakeMKV beta to extract video and audio files from Blu-ray DVD to your hard drive, preserving the full quality of your Blu-ray DVD movies.

Rip Blu-ray DVD movies to MKV on the Mac

Connect external Blu-ray writer to your Mac and launch MakeMKV, and the software immediately found my USB-connected drive, and let me read the Blu-ray disc inside.

It then will present you with a list of titles, each with a file size next to it. The first title was the main movie—easy to tell because it listed the number of chapters and also displayed the largest file size of the group.

Clicking the disclosure triangle next to that title shows the various audio and subtitle tracks contained in the movie, and let you deselect those you don’t want. Then click the Make MKV button and a MKV file will be on your hard drive when the conversion is done.

Play ripped Blu-ray movies on Mac

MakeMKV basically strips the copy protection from movies and then copies them into an MKV container. The result is a perfect copy of the movie, at its original frame size and data rate, which I was able to play on my Mac Pro using the free VLC media player.

Convert ripped Blu-ray movies to MOV, MP4, AVI, FLV, WMV and more

If you want to edit Blu-ray movies on Mac, share it with your friends, or upload your Blu-ray movies to iPod, iPhone, and more, you can use Mac Video Converter to convert your Blu-ray movies to any format of your choice. This easy to use Mac Video Converter converts ripped Blu-ray DVD movies quickly, and it provides a wide range of useful presets for iMovie, iDVD, iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, PSP and many popular mobile phones.

If you want to directly rip Blu-Ray to various video formats for playback on your Apple TV, Xbox, or mobile digital media devices. Please Use Blu Ray Ripper.
