The optical unit from inside the console is defective and you must replace it. This is going to be very expensive -at least $150 just for the new BR unit - and quite difficult to do.
You have 3 options:
1 -- you buy a new unit and replace it yourself - a good video tutorial on how it's done can be found here
2 -- you send it to Sony to be fixed - not an option since it will probably cost youmore than the third option.
3 -- you buy another second hand, functional PS3 and keep the one you have for parts.

Disk is not being read

Disk may be faulty or your device may be faulty. Im leaning toward the disk being scratched or otherwise unusable. Does it work in other computers?

HARD DISK reading but no files appearing..!!!

Sometimes this happens when the computer is turned off by force e.g. lightning/suspend mode. You'll have to use hard drive recovery tools in my oppinion which could cost quite a lot.
