PS3 Bluray Drive problems: Could you solve them, and how?

I mentioned it for a brief while on the chatbox and got some answers, but this may be a better place to discuss the situation: It would be nice if we could share our experiences with our Blu-ray drive problems, and means to solve them.

I am on my second blu-ray drive on my PS3. First one died trying to read a probably faulty Dark Night Bluray, and now this one cannot detect my Mirror's Edge Bluray, 4 times out of 5 tries. This of course is getting me nervous.

Fleakitten mentions using a Bluray drive cleaner helped solve his problems. McLoki said he also had a similar problem but didn't mention how or if he solved it :)

Did you have similar problems, and could you solve them, and how?

I was having problems on most discs on the first try (still an original 60GB), but ever since I replaced my HDD with a 500GB (and blew out the dust within the opening), I haven't had any issues at all, with every disc working first try again Confused

Note to self: Blow the dust out before doing anything stupid.

I own a PS3 Slim and so far I\'ve had no problems with the BR Drive. I DO clean it at least once a month to avoid any dust-particle residue to damage the drive or lenses, so maybe that helps in the long run.
