My fat 80GB PS3 suddenly stopped recognizing gaming and BD movie disks. I don't know if this is a hell of a coincidence but it started to happen after upgrading to the 3.70 firmware.

Has anybody been facing the same problem? Are there any fixes to this issue?

  • It seems someone else has this problem as well

    Have you tried returning to factory settings?

  • In my case, at least, it was a hell of a coincidence. It happened to be a hardware problem (caused by the firmware upgrade???) that got fixed after changing a couple of chips.

If it is still on warranty, returns back to PlayStation. Otherwise, you must pay a fee. My friend had the same problem and they have sent him a new one.
