When putting disk in check by listening if you can hear the disk spinning at high speeds or a clickin noise, this means the laser is having trouble reading disk,try cleaning with a cd laser cleaner you can get these from comet argos pc world etc,if this does not work the laser may have burned out,one of the main faults with playstation and xbox is the fans that cool down the system also draw in dust through the vents wich inturn soil the laser lens hope this helps andy

When attempting to copy blu ray disc message reads disc not detected.(emachine e525)


Although the same shape and size, Blue Ray disks are a completely different format to DVD's and CD's. You drive won't recognise them

You'll need to get a Blue ray RW drive, and it doesn't stop there. Because there a great deal more information on a blueray disk, you'll need several dvd disks to copy the info to a DVD.

Bluerays hold about 25Gb of data, DVD's hold 4.7 GB and CD's hold 700Mb data.

PS3 READING DVD'S + CD'S BUT NOT GAMES WHATS UP ?


Hello,

To start the laser reads disc's differently. A CD or DVD is just your typical disc then you have blueray which your games are burned onto a blueray disc. Your optical lens is damaged and likely unable to read blueray format.

If you have a blueray movie or can borrow one, try it and see if it still plays that will determine if that is the problem.

If so you will have to replace the optical lens,

Note: Opening your PS3 will void your warranty, so if you are still covered, it is best to send it in to Sony for repair.

Good news is it is easy to do and there are many free step by step tutorials with pictures or videos to show you how. If you must do it yourself.

Sonybdp-s301 won't play 2012


Sony BDP-S301 has an upgrade to Version 5.3 to support the new Blu-ray discs. Download the software here (Click the link). Read the procedure carefully and follow it exactly.
Note: The update makes use of a burned, finalized CD DISK, not a DVD Disk.

A Blu-ray player can play DVD or CD and still not play Blu-ray. It may play Blu-ray but not CD or DVD, or burned discs. This is all caused by the 'optical' a part that reads the disc in the machine. Your player will need service as a Blu-ray optic cannot just be 'dropped' into a player.

The system is no longer reading any disk. Has my driver gone out?


IIf the system will play regular cd's and regular movies(non blueray) the problem is the blueray portion of the laser assy. If it won't read anything, you probably have a bad laser assy all together. Either way, you will have to replace the whole laser carriage assy. I think they go for about $70 on ebay. Fairly technical fix if you want to do it yourself. If not, find a local PS3 repairman to perform the work. Good luck!

My playstation3 is nor reading game cd.it's


Well you seem to have the same problem i had, you updated your ps3 and now it wont read any blueray at all....

you probaly wont like what im about to say.....

but there is 2 options....

1. If you still have warrenty left on your machine, then use it now. (go down to the shop where you bought it and have it replaced or send to service.)

2. If no warrenty, well then you still have 2 options, but these cost money.

2.1. You can still send it to service at any store that sells ps3, but they will charge you a fee. (about 150$)

2.2. Or you can find a blueray lens and then replace it your self, its an easy task and can be done in about 1½ for one that never opened a ps3. you can find tutorials on youtube how to replace it.
( it does require that you know how to handle a screwdriver )

A new lens will fix this problem, i had it myself and just replaced my lens with a new, and now it works again.

My ps3 has a hard time reading ps3 games but doesnt have a problem reading anything else.


Have you tryed to play a BlueRay movie? PS3 games are stored on BlueRay so it might play DVD's and CD's, but the BlueRay's laser diode could be burning out.

Ps3 reads ps2 games and movies, but not ps1 or ps3 games


your blueray lens
the ps3 has 2 different lenses in the disk drive 1 is blueray and the other is just a basic dvd cd lens<
your blueray lens will have burned out if your still under warranty you should be fine to call sony and request a free repair if your not under warranty it will cost around £120
