SOURCE: Games initial load before Play Starts receive error 'cannot read disk see instruction manual'

If this happens for only some games, you should try cleaning the discs with a disc cleaner. Otherwise, you could try asking around at stores like circuit city, radioshack, best buy, etc. for what you could use to clean the lens, the part that reads the disc in your gamecube. If that doesn't work, chances are that the lens is damaged and your only hope is to send it in for repairs or get a new gamecube (or Wii).

SOURCE: MY PS3 WONT READ PS3 DISKS, BUT HAS NO PROBLEM READING PS2 & PS1 DISKS

Question for all who have has the disc read error problem...

Does your PS3 boot into the menu? If so, see if you can download a demo game and play that. If you can play a downloaded demo game, it generally means that your all your PS3 hardware, except the laser lens, is functioning properly. My friend's PS3 had the same problem. It would not play any discs he puts in, but will play a downloaded demo. His PS3 is no longer under Sony's warranty, so I fixed it by replacing the laser lens for him. You can buy a replacement lens on Ebay. However, if your PS3 is still under Sony's warranty, i suggest sending it back to them for repairs.

SOURCE: disk drive wont read

you may need a new disc drive or you may just need to clean the laser in it.
if you remove the disc drive and turn it over you will see the laser, just clean it with a non static cloth.

Can you download x-box 360 games onto the hard drive from the game disk, then play the game from the hard drive without using the disk.


No, you will still need the disc. The only point of downloading a game to your hard drive is to make the game load faster because the Xbox wont have to try as hard to read it. It isn't very useful for multiplayer games like Halo or Gears of War.

Playstation 3 wont play PS3 Games


ok right so your ps3 wont read disks huh well first of all id like to say this has happened to me twice and it has worked perfectly for me and i quarentee it will work for you ...

first save all your data to a memory stick

secondly go to settings, system settings, and format your ps3 by clicking on full format this will delete all your filles :( but will refresh your ps3


BTW this formatting thing will take atleast 4 hours so just leave your ps3 on and chill out watch t.v or something :)

hope this helps

PS3 wont play games but will play DVD's


I left all ready some important help about this issue.
I do believe you have a faulty laser since ps3 have 2 diode laser on the same mechanic and each one is independent for loading your disk.You can read dvd movie but no blue ray disk or Ps3 game or vice versa.
If you have few minutes look on my other suggestion
