Hi,

This is an extremely common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer 'see' or read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.


The symptoms you describe are very typical of a failure of one or both of these lasers.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.

Many thanks for using FixYa.

Music on mp3 player not aknowledged by computer


You are right about the Vista. The nextar was designed to work with up to XP. It wasn't designed for Vista at all. You could try getting Vista to treat it as an old OS by selecting the player, (and if Vista works anything like Windows 7) by right clicking on the mouse and select compatibility options. Or finding the option to do the same in Windows, if it doesn't come up in Vista. (Never used Vista so do not know it). Anyway then select the OS of your old computer for the compatibility.

Problems with booting


for any new hard disk first you have to create a partition table. Usually this is done when installing the OS. eg: for win98 you have to first create the partition in dos, format it, then run win98 setup. Now in WinXP this can be done when installing the OS. Similarly you may have to create the partition before runing UNIX setup. I Dont know the installation for UNIX. Usually the hard disk manufacturer supplies with some utility to do the partition. Like Disk Manager from Seagate.
