[Answered] PS3 Blu-ray Drive Failing help?
Here's one for you guys. My PS3 doesn't like to read discs anymore. When I fire up the machine, it usually doesn't know there's a disc inside. I eject the disc and have to reinsert like three or more times. Sometimes it seems like I have to use a different game to get it to recognize disc, but that doesn't always work.
So I'm thinking the drive is going bad. PS3 fat, 60GB. Yeah, it's a little old. Here's a question. Is there any programs that can fake the PS3 into thinking it has a disc inside? I'm guessing not, as the disc probably provides information that multiman uses to run the game. Would be an awesome piece of software if it existed.
I guess I'll be in the market for a new drive before too long, which sucks. I've avoided opening my PS3 up to this point. Oh yeah, by the way I've wiped HD, reinstalled everything recently and the problem remains so I'm confident it's hardware.
Aight, just looking for ideas. Thanks for reading. All comments and ideas are appreciated!
TBH if you strip the drive down and clean the lazer with cotton buds and alcohol it normally works fine on these.
