My ps3 freezes too at times but I think its because of dust and I suggest that you check for it too. Since my ps3 is out of warrenty, I'm going to open it and see if I can blow out some dust. I see a lot of dust collecting around the vents so I'm sure dust probably has something to do with it. I'll let you know what happened but if it's under warranty then just exchange it.

Hi my ps3 doesnt recognize my blue ray discs

Sounds like your blu-ray laser has gone bad. Try CPR in New York City. They are faster than the manufacturer, and cheaper! They have a usual turnaround of 3-5 business days. And if you become a fan on their facebook page, mention it and you will get a 10% discount. You can easily ship your unit to them.
Here is the link to their facebook page, it has all the info you need.

Hope it helps!
