You can enable or disable auto run in the settings area on the XMB, but I've never heard of the disc not showing up at all. Even if the disc was unreadable, the PS3 would say "Corrupted Data" or something. You should go through your PS3's settings and see if there's anything that's not right. Maybe there's a "Hide disk" option enabled. Sorry I couldn't help more.

How to play movie


first thing you may want to check is to see if your disks play automatically. go to settings>system settings>disc auto start (its about mid way down). make sure that is marked "ON" If its not just press "X" on disc auto start and you should have option to turn it "OFF" and "ON". with that set every time you put in a disc it should auto start.
if that doesn't start automatically the title of your BD should be under VIDEO and it should be the one on the bottom. if it doesn't show up there you should check to make sure the disk is able to be read. try it with another DVD/BD if those show up and your first disk don't than you know you have a faulty disk. hope this helps

When I put in a game or a Blueray disk it will not show it to be loaded!!


If the game or movie doesn't play when you choose it then you're going to need a new disc reader because the same thing happened to my old ps3. Sony said it was about $150 to replace

The PS3 will not recognize games or movies. You load it and it will not show in up in the menu of options. It powers and shows the normal menu but does not recognize games or dvds regular or blue ray.

PS3 games/movies will freeze... will not load games/movies


Hi,This is a common problem on the PS3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue. You can also open the case and clean the laser lense with a Q Tip and an alcohol cleaning solution. If you plan on opening the case at any stage please ensure the unit is disconnected from its power supply. If this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.

I put in a BluRay movie and it shows on the menu but when I hit X to play it, the screen goes black and will not play. PS3 games are hit and miss.


It sounds like you are having a firmware problem. This is common with blue ray. You will have to go to the ps3 site and download the firmware upgrade for your system. I think you can upgrade automatiacally if your ps3 is hooked up to the internet. Go to menu settings and look for updates for firmware or divers...

Please don't forget to give very good ratings, they are important

Are the ps3 games supposed to load when you put them in? I put a game in and nothing happens/


It may be set to NOT AUTO LOAD games or discs. Check your game settings in the "Settings" menu on the XMB at start up.

Blu ray not playing on ps3


Could be an overheating issue.. Is there enough air circulation around the unit? Is it possibly dusty? try and perform minor servicing (use a can of compressed air incase if there's dust causing problems)

Does this happen on regular dvd's ?
