Hi - When I insert a gaming or music disk into my PS3 it makes a noise as if it wants to eject the disk again. This either happens or otherwise it wont recognize that a disk has been inserted. This...

Hello, It's possibly lens calibration problem, sometimes that happens when there's a lot of sudden movements during transportation, sometimes the use of scratched disks tend to trigger the Error correction algorithm of the PS3 reader, putting the reading lens into a lot of stress that heats up the EC chip and games are not read properly, causing the game to fail loading and making unusual sounds.
I recommend not to use scratched disks, try to use only PS3 game disks only to extend your console's life, and take good care of all your disks, keep them clean.
The thing is as technology improves Disks format changes to put more information into a single disk, and precision looking for data is more critical as data sectors are closer to each other, so scratched or dirty media tends to return errors.
Hope I helped, and try to seek some professional help on calibrating/substituting your old reader.

My Madden 07 game can get to where it says Madden 07, but it has to go completely black to work and it's not. How do you fix that?

Clean your disk and check it for scratches.Use disk cleaner and clean from the center out in straight lines.You can remove some scratches with the same method.

Ps2 (slim)

Well first off, make sure the disk if in PS1 OR PS2 format. That is what the PS2 Is requesting when it says "Please insert Playstation or Playstation 2 format disk. The Slim PS2 has various problems reading disk.(Don't Know why? I own it and Know it does). The Fat version(1st version) is a much better system, in my opionion. Try blowing air to clean the disk reader. Or changing the disk reader portion out, At a small price.

DVD CD-R drive does not recognize a blank CD on toshiba sattelite

Try this before you enter disk.
  1. setup software or files to transfer when prompted to enter CDR, then place in drive.
  2. Or open my computer, select cd drive right click select, format disk. When prompt comes up for disk insert CDR.
Some systems have trouble with other manufactured formatted disk.

Formatting

Hi,

By formatting a disk, your actually creating a Blank-Disk.

The PS2 won,t read a blank disk.

is your console Saying " disk format Unknown "

This is a completely different Issue.

In this case, the PS2 does not play this type of Disk.
