Re: not reading disc
If you in anyway did not complete the update it can actually seriously damage your system. If you canceled the update or prematurely stopped it. i suggest calling suport at 1-800-345-SONY (7669) or emailing them at http://www.us.playstation.com/corporate/ConsumerServices

Make sure that your firmware is updated correctly. Also make sure the games are the correct region for the unit you're playing on. You may have an incorrect region setup on the PS3. PS3 games are region locked, either being PAL or NTSC. If the PS3 is set to read PAL (by being set to a region that is PAL, like the UK, Europe, and Japan) it will not read or play an NTSC disc.
Misconfigured or corrupted firmware installations can also cause this problem. Furthermore, pirated games will not play, because they do not have the appropriate security key on the disc.
You can try testing this by creating a new profile on the PS3 and trying to play the games. If you can play them with the new profile, then there is a corruption with the old profile. If you can't play them in the new profile, then it could be the firmware.
Lastly you may have a blown drive. Most PS3 games are dual layer blu ray discs capable of storing large amounts of data. The blu ray drive in the PS3 uses a sequenced dual laser to read the game. If one of the laser emitters has blown, it won't read the game correctly. However, since it doesn't use both emitters to read blu ray movie disks or dvds they'll still play correctly.
You will not be able to play some newer disc because of the technology embedded in them. The updates allow for those necessary files to be implemented into your system giving it the ability to play games and blu rays. Get your system updated.
Download the firmware from the
playstation official website onto a usb
stick. Follow the instructions on the website at: www.playstation.com (the update will be at the bottom of the page, on the right side.)
The update corrupted your hard drive that's why it's not loading any disc.Yes,Restoring the system will work but it will destroy all your saved game data.Updating the system will not remove the hard disk defect.There is only one solution,Reset it.
Do need the internet, just go into your settings tab on the intro menu for the PS3 and hit system update. Use the via internet option and it finds the newest version...2.70. Takes a bit to download but, when it's done you get to enjoy watching the otherwise $30 drink coaster.
If your PS3 is brand new, you most likely have to update the system's
software to a more current version in order to properly play many
In order to update your PS3 system:
Go to the home menu, move to the "Settings" tab (the 2nd tab from the
far left), scroll down to "System Update". It takes about 5 minutes to
download and fully download the update, but it should solve the problem.
