ps3 doesn`t read game disc at first.....

6 Replies 12,961 Views Created 02-03-2010

My ps3 doesn`t read game discs as soon as they put it in the machine, i have to load up a store game or demo quit out of it straight away and im able to see the game and play it ok,

 

if i put a blu-ray or dvd in the drive it see`s them straight away and they play fine, just seems to be a problem reading the games at first, tried setting games to auto-load but it has made no difference, even the blue light comes on to say theres a disc inside too, just really strange but just glad it does eventually play the games

 

any ideas or settings i could try?

I am most prolly Drunk......yep....just checked....

bit of a long shot, but safe boot mode 3 MAY help...

Re: ps3 doesn`t read game disc at first.....

I've been having the same problem, though loading up a demo/PSN game doesn't seem to work for me.. just tried safe mode option 3 and it said the hard drive was corrupted, then 'fixed it'.. but still no luck reading games.  CDs and DVDs work fine, also sometimes the game gets picked up after ejecting and re-inserting several times, then runs flawlessly for as long as I want it to.. so would I be right in thinking that means my lens isn't completely shot?

Re: ps3 doesn`t read game disc at first.....

hi thanks very much i didn`t know about the safe mode...

i selected option 3

  • Restore File System - Attempts to repair all areas on the hard disk drive where files can be saved. Corrupted data may be erased if it cannot be recovered.
  •  

    and this seems to have cured my fault thanks again... :smileyhappy:
