98% chance your blu-ray drive has failed.

This is the number one problem facing PS3 owners.

You can check out some of my previous posts on how to fix this problem.

External HD isnt recognized by ps3


Hmm, go to Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Disk Management. Then look or scroll down right hand panel to find your disk. If it is there you could RIGHT click on it and assign a new drive letter such as Q or R.
If it's not there your external disk could be faulty, the power supply transformer or power cable could be faulty or it could be the USB cable.
If all looks OK you probably need to contact a disk recovery specialist such as DATA365.

Comment: NTFS is a much more stable file system and is much easier to recover after errors. FAT32 is not commonly used now.

My ps3 doesnt read disks


If your system doesn't recognize blue ray games or blue ray dvds but still plays normal dvds and music cds your lens is dirty. I had this problem and my factory and store warranty are up. I decided to take the machine apart and see what I could do.

If you look online there are several videos how to take the machine apart. I opened the machine up, took out the blue ray drive and opened up the drive. Once you remove the cover from the blue ray drive, take some rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip and clean the lens. I actually used my t-shirt to wipe it and blew on the lens and it did the trick. Before you assemble everything, plug the drive in and pop in a game to see if it works (or you will have to remove all the screws again.) This should solve your problem. If your drive doesn't recognize any media, your laser might be shot.

Once you tear into it and figure out how everything works you'll realize it's not very complicated. Otherwise you'll end up spending about 150 bucks for Sony to do the same thing.

Ps3 and 1tb hard disk


This one may only have one possible solution.

You probably have heard that the PS3 will support up to a terabyte hard drive. That is true for most of them.

However, depending on the version of PS3, you may have to see if it is possible to flash the BIOS of the PS3. I talked to a Sony representative about the hard drive and it will support a 1 terabyte hard drive.

Contact sony to see if it is possible to flash the PS3 BIOS so it will recognize the drive.

My Ps3 doesn't recognize my disc


Pretty sure its your laser, mine was doing the same thing, you might need to clean it before replacing it though. If you do need to replace it, the part runs at about 70 usd.

My ps3 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.
