When I insert a DVD to play it is choppy, it freezes then unfreezes every half second or so. The audio isn't affected at all, just the video. Games or Blu rays will not even play, they say invalid disc...


40GB and 60GB 1st Gen PS3 consoles are notorious for faults with the Blu-ray lens. With your warranty more than likely expired you will not get a replacement. With no support offered for older versions either I suggest buying a newer 'slimline' version. Bigger hard drive, support offered and more reliable.

I put in a blu ray disc but it is not playing in any media player and the disc drives do not recognise that a disc has been entered


Unless the drive in your laptop is a blu-ray drive, it won't recognize a blu-ray disc. A blu-ray drive can recognize and play a regular DVD, but it doesn't work the other way around.

If your computer is indeed fitted with a blu-ray drive, the laser lens may need cleaning. On a laptop, you usually have clear access to the lens with the tray open, so you can try cleaning it with a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaner. Or the disc itself may have a problem. Try another disc and see if the trouble continues.

If the computer doesn't have a blu-ray drive and you will frequently want to play blu-ray discs, get a USB external blu-ray drive. It's easier to find one of those than to locate a suitable blu-ray replacement drive for a laptop. There are many variations of drives used in laptops, but an external drive will always be compatible. And you'll be able to use it with other computers not blu-ray equipped.

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

I am trying to copy a ps3 game to my computer,but the dvd drive in my computer wont read the disc.Any ideas


The playstation 3 game format is in Blu-ray... but also a special format of Blu-ray to keep people from making illegal copies of the disc. Also the disc is formatted in a way that a PC will not recognize the disc unless the drive has been modified illegally. A standard DVD drive will not recognize a Blu-Ray disc.

My ps3 just stopped playing video discs and blu ray discs today. help!


Goto settings at the main menu of the ps3, go to the left to settings, then go down to BD/dvd settings go down to BD 1080p 24hz output and disable it.If this doesnt work out for you call up Sony, theyll get you set up with the repair process. before you call them though, be sure to restore system to default settings, because they will ask if youve done that yet.Their number is 800-345-7669 (800-345-SONY)
Sometimes if you get a blu ray disc outside of your region, then it's not supposed to work. If you live in the US, then only Blu Ray movies from the US will work.

Plays ps2 games but doesnt plays ps3 games or dvds


please verify:
  • your dvd disc region (must be region free or 1 - for USA)
about ps3 games try:
  • restoring your system
  • reinstalling all game data files
  • re-updating your system
  • playing blu-ray MOVIES disc, to check a possible problem with your reader .
if the bd movie doesn't work, you have got a possible problem with your bd reader .
then, take it to an assistance center for hardware repair .

You will have to replace the laser in the blu-ray drive. It will run about 80 dollars just for the laser. If you need more information email me at ced70@hotmail.com

Won't play anything such as dvds or games


I have the solution.

You go to the settings on your PS3 a 'Restore PS3 System'. Once clicked, choose the 'Full Format'

This DOES work. I had the same problem with my PS3 last week, (10th June) so i phoned up Sony Support and they told me to do this. I thought that i would have to replace my Blu-Ray drive but never had to because of this!

Theres a few downsides to this....1. its takes approx 28hours to complete and 2. it will delete everything from your hard drive: music, vids, demos, game saves the lot.
But if you have an external hard drive then you can back up everything onto there, then do the restore. Once you have done it you can then put all your backed up data back on.
Plus you can still get all your purchased downloads from PS store back and it also keeps all your online activity i.e your level on COD4-5 an fifa ultimate team is still there ect.

Other option which will have the same affect but wont take so long is to format the PS3 again found in the settings menu on the PS3.

I would suggest to Restore PS3 System before spending money on replacing the drive when you might not need to.

Note: Again, this advice was given to me by the Sony Support line when i had the same problem on 10th June 09. I Phoned the PS3 line to confirm that i needed the Blu-Ray drive replacing, which to my suprise i didnt!

General Troubleshooting: Back to top
  • Confirm the disc is clean
    • To clean a disc, use lint-free cleaning cloths made specifically for cleaning discs, sold at computer software stores. When cleaning the disc, we recommend starting from the innermost circle, and wiping out to the edge in a straight line. We do not recommend wiping in a circular motion, as it may create more scratches on the disc.
    • Note: Other materials, such as a paper towel or a T-shirt, may also scratch the disc. If there are any scratches, smudges, or fingerprints on the disc, it may not function properly. Also, do not use or insert any CD/DVD drive cleaners into the PLAYSTATION 3 as doing so may cause damage to the system.
  • Try a different disc
    • Try playing different Blu-ray Discs, DVDs, or CDs on the PLAYSTATION 3 console to see if the problem exists across multiple discs.
  • Try a different PLAYSTATION®3
    • To determine if the problem is with the disc itself, try playing the disc on a different PLAYSTATION®3 system, (or a PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, PS one™ console, or a standalone CD/DVD player, if applicable).
  • Confirm that you are not using any game modification devices
    • Unlicensed devices such as game modification devices can interfere with the proper function of the software. We do not recommend the use of any game modification devices or unlicensed products.
    • Note: Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) recommends only using products that are licensed for use with PlayStation� products. If the product you are using is neither made by, nor licensed by, SCEA for use on the PS3 system, we recommend you discontinue the use of that product. Please keep in mind products that fail to meet or exceed SCEA's strict quality standards can cause damage to the PS3 system immediately, or with prolonged use. SCEA is not responsible for damages caused by untested, unlicensed products, and any remaining Limited SonyWarranty on the product will be considered void. It is the responsibility of the company that manufactured the unlicensed product to accommodate you, should their product cause damage to an SCEA product.
  • Turn off the BD 1080p 24Hz Output(HDMI) option
    • f the Blu-ray Disc� does not support 1080p 24Hz video mode, the video output may not display properly. Go to [BD 1080p 24Hz Output(HDMI)] under icn_settings.gif Settings icon (Settings) > [BD/DVD Settings] and select "Off".
  • Confirm that the disc you want to play is supported by the PS3™ system
    • View what disc media is supported by the PS3 system.
    • Macrovision Information (for DVD copyright protection)
      • If the PLAYSTATION 3 is connected to the television through a VCR, you may not be able to view DVD movies. This is because of the copyright protection coding that has been programmed into the discs by the DVD manufacturers. If the PS3 system is installed directly to a VCR or TV/VCR combo, please try connecting the PS3 system directly to the TV's video/audio inputs for DVD movie playback.
    • HDCP Compliancy (for Blu-ray Disc with video content)
      • If using HDMI cables, confirm whether the disc you are trying to play has High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) built in. If so, confirm that the TV or display you are using is also HDCP compliant. Copyright-protected Blu-ray video discs can only be output at 1080p using an HDMI cable connected to a device that is compatible with the HDCP standard.
    • Advanced Access Content System (AACS) for Blu-ray Disc content
      • Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) for audio/video content protection. If the Blu-ray Disc does not play, you may need to update your PLAYSTATION 3 to the latest system software to ensure the latest AACS keys have been updated.
      • To learn more about AACS, visit our Consumer Alerts page on AACS.

If the PLAYSTATION 3 does not recognize the disc: Back to top
  • Remove the disc and reinsert it.
  • If the disc has a label, insert it with the label side up.
  • Check whether the disc is scratched or dirty. If dirty, wipe it gently with a soft cloth.
  • Make sure the disc has not been exposed to high temperatures, high humidity or direct sunlight. When discs will not be used for an extended period of time, store them in their cases. Stacking uncased discs or storing them at an angle can cause them to warp.
  • DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+R/DVD+RW discs that have not been finalized cannot be played.
  • When outputting DVD content or PLAYSTATION 3 format software in SD resolution, only discs recorded in the NTSC standard can be played.

PS3 region code


Yes you can.. Blu-ray discs are not region coded.. However if you trying to play a DVD or any other format disc then it would not be possible since these are region coded.. However the PS3 games are region free.. can be bought from anywhere and played anywhere..

Hope this helps!!
