I ave the same problem. I just fot off the phone with Sony and they are sending out a box for me to ship my PS3 back to them so they can evaluate whether or not it has been tampered with and then send me out a new (which means refurbished) unit. This is probably going to take weeks. I say this is bull#$%^! My system is only 3 months old and hasn't had a whole lot of use. I never had any problem with it until immediately after the 2.17 update.
wow thats way rough cuz mines doin the exact same thing. it was fine til i downloaded the new update and now it wont read any discs i put into it. im gonna be really pissed if i lose this thing for an entire month for them to send me a used one.
To those thad have had problems with this update, let's enter a
comment on the blog so they can see it there too. If you have case
numbers put them there too, that way they might notice our problems...
