Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 not reading discs

I have my PS3 since January 15. Yesterday I was playing Guitar Hero III and it was fine. I stopped the game and ejected the disc. Then I slipped in the Grand Theft Auto IV disc and the player didn't read it. I could see the moving icon at top right but it never recognized the disc. I pushed in a Blue Ray disc, a CD and a DVD disc and the player didn't read neither of them. I was using software version 2.41.

I can navigate through the menus, play stored music and pictures and change configurations. I even updated software successfully to version 2.42 yesterday night. But I can't play any disc. All my discs are brand new and the player is always covered against dust when not in use. I use it only for about 12 hours a week.

Guitar Hero III skipping


Skipping Cds are not uncommon however if the bottom of your Gutar hero three disk is clean and it starts to do it with other games then it could be a laser problem try cleaning the bottom of your Guitar hero disk that should resolve the problem.

Guitar hero3 on PS2 (original)


haha you know i had the exact same problem with my PS3 version of the game i tried to trick the game by getting an adapter so i could plug my old PS2 guitar hero controller into it and just play 2 player that way and the exact same thing happend. Luckly i have a bud who works at game stop and he told me that second guitars for the game have been put up on sale yet so you have to buy the pack again for another guitar. How stupid is that, but yeah bud you me and everyone else is out of luck for now. But good news my bud at the stop told me they come on sale in about a month so not to much longer befor were all rockin out

No data for guitar hero III


I'm using the slim... maybe it is the type of memory card but guitar hero is the only game I've had a problem with. I just restarted the game and then beat it over again. After it said that there wasn't any data and I chose to make a new one, it said that there was data but it was corrupt. Hopefully it doesn't happen again, but I haven't had any trouble since I started over the other one.

Can't load guitar hero III


This happened with my old 360 and GoW. Microsoft insisted it was the disc, but it wasn't. I ended up purposely giving it the 3 Red Rings so I could send the 360 of for repair. It worked fine when I received the console back from repair.
