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
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.
I opened up my ps3 a week ago and cleaned the lens with a cotton bud, scaring the hell out of myself during the process. Luckily, my bluray still works! Didn't help the mirror's edge not being read tho.
is it possibly a manufacturing defect on the disc itself?
Well, it used to work perfectly, and there's not a single scratch or a finger-print on it. I still would hope it is disc related, tho..
My brother says Batman did the same, once, too. I hope that one was a coincidence!
It also can't seem to read my Snatch DVD I used for testing right after we re-assembled the machine. I tested with another DVD and that seemed to work.
i need help getting my blu ray to work it worked 1 time but then stoped working i just need advise ethier give it to sony to fix or buy new one
Q.. Bring it over next time you come and I'll take a look at it. Jake told me about your issue. It plays games ok, and the games are blu-ray, so it might be some weird setting.
