PS3 games not loading.

26 replies 9675 views Edited Aug 3, 2007
My playstation 3 wont load games anymore.

I've tried 3 of my ps3 games, and none are scratched or burned, all originals.

Just bought my 60 gb P33 in April 2007, and its in a well ventilated area.

My PS2 games and my music CD's work on my PS3, just not the PS3 games.
 
This problem occured right after I downloaded the update 1.90.
 
What to do? I'm very worried.

Did you push the PS button on the controller? I've seen this happen to a few other people as well.

Does it show the XMB or anything on the screen?

No the PS3 games are not showing up in the XMG.
 
When I insert the ps3 game, a little spinning icon loads in the upper right hand corner of the screen for about 10 seconds...then goes away, and the game doens't load.

Reset Defaults (Hold down power button on the console for two beeps), Reformat Hard drive, and Call Sony if nothing works.

So this will delete all of my saved game data...all of my game purchases...and other media files in the PS3?
 
I don't want to delete the games I've paid for via the PLAYSTATION-Store.
 
I sent Sony an email an hour ago, I'll wait until they respond before I pull the plug.
 
All I want to do is play NHL 2k7. But that dream is broken.

Resetting the defaults (Either with the power button or under system settings) or calling Sony won't, but formatting will.

Restoring defaults didn't fix it.
 
I'll wait until tomorrow and then call Sony...I think they are closed now, thats if their email doesn't solve it!

I would go to Settings>System Settings, then select Restore PS3 System (Choose Quick Format, you will lose all data on the HDD), I would also recommend you update to the latest firmware, if you have not already.
