Sorry for the long delay, had to ask my son over the weekend. My field covers mostly the hardware stuff of gaming equipment and he is more in tuned with the games themselves. And what he told me is as much as what gamerfixer07 has posted.

As far as I know, you can only download games to your hard drive from the PS store. The Blu-Ray drive is read only and can not write on a disc. I hope this helps you out. Good luck to you.

SOURCE: PS3 wont play blue ray or PS3 game discs

Please check the region code on the BD or DVD. It should match the region code set in the system. Otherwise the disc will not play

SOURCE: PS3 won't load games/disc


If your PS3 will not play any disks then most likely there is a problem with the laser on the drive. Now you can try to clean it and some times this will work. On the systems that come in about 50% of them get fix by me cleaning the laser.

Note very important DO NOT USE a DVD/CD cleaner disk on the PS3.
You may scratch the lense on the drive. You will need to find one that is supported in a Blu-Ray drive (I do not know if they make them yet because I normally break the system down to clean it)
Also note if the system is in warranty call Sony and/or the place that you got your extended warranty through before opening the system.
If you think you can open the system you self the link below with help you open up the system and clean the drive. Also there are other walk throughs on the Internet. However if you are not an Computer Tech I would recommend to look for someone in your area because taking apart the system can be hard.

Hope this helps.

Ps3 error 8001002B with headset pairing

The code means "dirty or damaged disc". The PS3 has encountered some kind of problem reading the disc. Possibly the laser could be having problems, possibly the disc. Try another game disc. If it works, the game disc you are trying to start is somehow damaged. If it doesn't, the laser most likely has a problem.

My ps3 doesnt reading any discs

Do you have the receipt? If you do, return it to the retailer and ask if they can replace it (they are legally obliged to replace it where I live, I'm not too sure about Asia though, but you should try anyway).

Or try to phone Sony and ask them (their customer service number should be on their website).
