Hi plummerland,

The disc reading problem is quite a common one!

It is caused by the laser coming away from the drive and you need to readjust the laser to get it to work.

Sounds bad but at least the drive is not broken JUST the laser needs readjusting.

Now let us look at how you can fix this:

Solution 1:

The normal way to fix this is to send it in and they will do the work for you at the factory. However it will cost about $150 and also you will have to wait about 4 weeks.

If you do not play on your PS3 that much this may be the best solution for you.

Solution 2: For A Faster Fix

If you want the games reading problem fixed quickly then you should check out some good PS3 Repair guides.

They normally include videos showing you how to readjust the laser - it takes about 20 mins.

Make sure you check out the full reviews below so you can fix a good one!

My black ops game keeps freezing up when I'm playing zombies and the game is about new


This is a common problem with Call of Duty: Black Ops. The programming of the game puts too much stress on the XBOX processors.
There is an update released to solve this problem.
When you start the game, if you are prompted to download the latest update, make sure you do so.
Other issues could be your internet connection speed not being strong enough (if you are playing multiplayer) or the game disc is scratched or has dust on it.

Check the inside ring of the disc, is there any cracking? If so the only real solution is to buy another disk but to be sure it's not the system try another black ops disc in your system.

Well, if it's not a problem with the console, it must be the Black Ops CD. Try cleaning the disc, and trying again. (One way to clean the disc is to use a clean cotton cloth) If cleaning the disc doesn't help, it could be because there's some kind of scratch on the CD. If that's the case, you may want to consider buying a new black ops. If you still have the receipt, you could trade it in for a new CD.

Good luck!

Delete the game off the drive and play it from the disc for a bit, or is it a requirement of the multilayer to have it installed on the hard drive?

Then try loading it to the drive again.

If that doesn't help, you might have to format your hard drive, or if you have another drive around try the other drive.
