Games not recognized in Game menu

I loaded a game and it played for a while...next time I loaded it up...or should I say attempted to...the CD icon did not appear in the Game menu.

I tried a different game, same thing. Doesnt show up in Game menu.

I loaded the system update version 2.4.1 and still nothing... the games were Metal Gear Solid 4 and College Football 09.

DVDs work fine

    When I was in the middle of playing assassins creed, the game froze and I could not turn the ps3 off, I had to unplug it from the wall.Ever since then no games will load.

    Bought mine on eBay and right out of the box it wouldn't recognize any disc (tried 3 different games, 2 DVDs, and the PS3 system setup disc). It was used but the seller said it worked when he tried it.

Hi,
You can try to do a system recovery on your PS3. this will set your PS3 back to factory settings as the settings may have been changed during the use. Here is the process in which you can do a system recovery.'

PS3 Recovery Menu


  1. Place the PS3 in standby mode
  2. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, you should hear a beep
  3. Keep a hold of the power button for a couple more seconds, the PS3 should shut back down to standby mode
  4. Once this happens, press and hold the power button again for a couple of seconds, waiting for 1 single beep.
  5. Ignore this beep and keep it pressed until you hear 2 consecutive beeps, release the button.
I think you choose option 3 and then repeat and choose option 4. Once you are done with this, try out your PS3.

PS3 Home Menu


you can change the system settings to boot to disc when turned on. also if you don't see an icon for your game after you've inserted it, your laser may need to be cleaned or replaced.

Have you inserted the game disc UMD into the PSP itself? You have to wait a few seconds after you turn it on before the game icon will be visible in the main menu screen before you can access the game. When it's active and you have the game icon selected press the "X" button to start the game.

UMD Icon Not Showing Up Under "Games" in menu


You've cleaned the disks but have you cleaned the laser? That'd be the next step before looking @ repair options.
