Various MW3 problems - help appreciated!

15 Replies 299 Views Created 04-07-2012

Hi Guys,

 

Started having progressive freezing and disc read error messages and basically now cannot get on at all without the PS3 crashing.

 

Although my disc appears scratch free it does the same in my brothers machine too though I haven't got another MW3 disc to try. All my other games and Blu rays are fine

 

I've read somewhere that buying a new disc may not correct the issue, but I've tried all the deletions and resets recommended without success. What is the truth behind these comments can anyone enlighten me

 

Now, possibly stupid question but, If I buy an new disc will my map pack one work with it i.e. the BLES code and if not what do I do to rectify. I'm annoyed that I'll have to buy a new disc I certainly don't want to have to pay for DLC again.

 

Many thanks

 

Martin

Cheers leggy

 

Just been online to activision. Thought I should go to the source!  They are sending a replacement disk. It is costing £12, but not unreasonable given I I could have damaged the disk ( v unlikely but possible). hopefully this will solve the issue.

 

Are you 1975 born? hope your reactions haven't slowed as much as mine LOL (1974!)

Its just not fair, we finally get to the days of big TV's, great graphics, and not loading from cassette or floppy; and all I can do now is run my character round like headless chicken and get shot to sh*t.

Haven't tried BF series yet may give that a go next

Yeah I did read it might be the lazer going, but it behaves exactly the same way in my brothers PS3 too and that is hardly used. Could be both are going but I hope not!

 

Anyway the one bonus is he has said I can have his PS3 as he never uses it! result no more having to hope the missus falls asleep so I can play games.

 

Any suggestion on a good method to clean the lens as it won't recognise a cleaning disc when I put one in?

 

cheers for all the help/suggestions everyone. I'll see what happens when I get my disc back

Not sure if this will help, or if it's an urban myth, but I did hear somewhere along the way that removing CoD Elite from the PS3 may help to resolve some "disc read error" problems with MW3. Do you have Elite installed on your PS3? If yes, can you remove it and see if it makes a difference?

Hi Durzo,

 

Yes tried that one and didn't work for me.

 

The seems to be a suggestion that the first batch of disc were dodgy, but given we are what, 6 months on now? I'd be surprised, but who knows!
