Hi vpman97,

Yes the disc reading problem on the PS3 is massive!

Let me run through what is going on and how you can fix it:

Cause:

It is the laser that needs readjusting in order to fix this problem. The good news is that the drive will still work as long as you readjust the laser in most cases - so you don't need to replace the drive!

Solution:

You can send it in for Repair and they will fix it for you - although this will cost about $150 in a repair bill and you can expect to wait for about 4 weeks to get your console back.

Quicker Solution:

It is possible to fix the PS3 games reading error from home because as mentioned above all you are doing is readjusting the laser.

Now if you want to go down this route check out the reviews of the top guides and see what they offer first below:

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.

My 360 will not play black ops. i have tried many new disc and nothing works. it will read other games but this one.


Try downloading the game to your hard drive and then taking out and putting the disc back in. If it says open tray several times in a row, try making the xbox vertical instead of horizontal.

Tried to play a game on one xbox but wont work on one but will work on another why one xbox can read the game other wont but have played the game before


Sometimes one drive might have a weaker laser than another or it may be aligned slightly different. Perhaps one is older or has been jostled around more. This is why some XBox units are more "sensitive" to scratched discs than others.

When I insert black ops the sreen says reading disc! Then it reads open tray. You have to do this 5 or 6 times bofore it works. It only does this. With black ops.


Normally, I would say that the issue sounds like a bad drive, but since it only happens with Black Ops it might be an issue with the game disc. If you can, I'd try a different copy of the game to see if you can replicate the issue.

Just be gentle with the disc, keep it in the case or the console and don't leave it out too often. I don't think this is a normal issue though. If your xbox is causing the issue with other games too make sure you get it checked out. I wouldn't want you to ruin these expensive games.

Hi, I got a so called "whitescreen" while playing CoD Black Ops.. Shut off the console and now 48h later, the ps3 won't find the black ops disc when trying to read the game.. Do you now what...


If the problem is only with the Black Ops game it could mean that the the game paly data is corrupt. Start by deleting the saved game data and the file data for the Black Ops game and if that doesn't work try doing a system restore. NOTE: A system restore will delete all other game data. I recommend backing up your system onto a usb flash drive.

Check for scratches on the disc. If the disc is unscathed, then try this. If you know someone else with Black ops for 360 ask for their help. First try their copy in your 360. If theirs works it's your disc. If their disc doesn't work either, then try yours in their 360 online at their place. If it works there, then you might need to strengthen your internet connection.

I'm with you Jordan. Mine just gave me this message for the first time last night. I'm desperate for a solution. I may try replacing the laser...less than $20 to do.

Just out of curiosity, what were you playing when you got the error? It wouldn't happen to be COD Black Ops, would it?

firstly its refurbished so you have to be careful because it may have had problems in the past, it referring to your hard drive by the way. ad secondly maybe its just your black ops disc? try playing black ops on another xbox console and if it freezes than its not your console its just the game =) then get a replacement and dont worry.
