PS3 Loading game Problems

try picking up a lens cleaning disk. they have brushes on the bottom that clean your lens. you put the alcohol water solution on the rushes and then insert it into the drive of the ps3. that may work if you have the same problem with all your disks. if you don't have a problem with all your disks, it may be that your savegame is corrupt and you need to start a new one.
