Hello there, sorry to hear about this problem. This is unfortunately fairly common with the Playstation 3, it means the laser unit on the actual disc drive of the Playstation is having problems. Depending on how old your system is, Sony will fix this for free, or there may be a small fee. At this point you will want to call Sony at 1-800-345-7669, unless you want to try and replace it yourself. It is very hard to do though. I recommend you call them and explain the problem, they will definitely get you fixed up.

Please be sure to rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful. If you have more questions on this or need further clarification please just respond to this answer and I will get right back with you. So sorry you have to go through this, but Sony will definitely help get you fixed.

Thanks
Tim

Games Explorer link does not work in Windows 7 or Vista.


To open the Windows Vista games folder, you'd normally click on the Games Explorer link in the Start Menu.
You have to ensure that it appears there in the first place.
If it doesnt appear, Click Start > Rt Click > Properties > Start Menu tab > Customize > Select Games > Display as a link or Display as a menu > OK > Apply > OK
Incidentally, if you type Shell:Games in Vista's start menu search bar and hit enter, then too the games folder will open.
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); But if the Games Explorer folder does not open in your Windows Vista, here is what you may try.
Type cmd in Vista's start menu. When cmd appears as a result, rt click on it and select Run as administrator.
In the elevated command prompt, type
regsvr32.exe gameux.dll and hit Enter. This will re-register the ganeux dll file.
It should help.

Playing multiplayer with one Game Card:
Certain Nintendo DS games require only one player have a copy of the game to play multiplayer. Those without a copy of the game will need to download the game information from the player that has the game in their system.

This feature is available on games that have this icon on their packaging:

Couldt find_ds_menu.dat


Do you have your DS set on Auto Mode, if so the DS will automatically start up any games that are inserted.

Deselecting Auto Mode:
If it's on Auto Mode, any games are automatically started. To deselect auto mode you just need to start up your DS without any games in either of the game slots, then it'll go to the DS screen, since no games are in for now this screen is useless right?

To select Manual Mode ( where it goes to the selection screen ) as your preffered setup, you'll see a small icon of what resembles a DS at the bottom of the menu screen. Remeber your games are still not inserted at this point yet. Use the directional pad to select the mini icon, or you can tap it twice. Tapping it proves more difficult though due to it's position. Once selected a toolbar of four options will appear, tap on the one displaying a wrench. From that box three other options should appear, tap on the one shown as an arrow pointing halfway through a rectangle (start up settings) you want to select Manul Mode. Wait a few seconds for the DS settings to save then you can turn it off. Now you'll be able to see the selection screen with your games inserted.

Summary of all that:
  1. remove any inserted games
  2. turn on to see the menu screen
  3. select the mini DS icon at screen's bottom
  4. when the four pictures appear, tap on the one of a "wrench"
  5. when three more pictures appear tap on the one of an arrow pointing half way through the rectangle
  6. two options appear, select manual mode.
I really hope thats what you meant ^_^ If it wasn't, ask one of the experts.
