try calling sony and see what they say. I have never heard a problem like that so idk.

wow....can´t believe that so many people have the same problem with the update 1.93!!! i had it downloaded like a week maybe two ago....and it seemed to work just fine. ´til yesterday!!! i tried to play a disc, and it actually said that the disc drive is busy reading, but the game or disc icon in the xmb didn´t even pop up!! so here i am, sittin´on a broken ps3 not knowing what to do! well i guess the only thing i can do is either turn it in where i bought it for a new 1 or call the support and wait a couple of weeks for a stupid box!!
or should i wait for the new update and see if that´ll fix it???
Hell yeah.... rock on!!

This just happened to me this evening. It must be a coinicidence or something, but after I installed that Resistance Patch, it all went to heck. The PS3 won't play and disc format or even attempt to read the discs when I load them in.

Holy crap ur scaring the **bleep** out of me, i'm downloading the resistance patch, i hope my PS3 doesn't go all **bleep** on me... Hey Remy, i'm sorry for ur ps3, i can only imagine how that feels (ha, i'm talking like some1 died). Good luck.

OMG!!! NO f@#KN WAY!!!BROKEN PS3
After reading the last 4 pages in this thread i have learnt tht my ps3(40gb new(crappier) version) is broken and only after 15 days, coincidence or not but i have only noticed this problem after the 1.93 update!?!?! All downloaded demos work an trailers etc, but not one single disc that i have tried has worked!!!!! I will just have to try my luck at returning it to the shop i bought it from with my receipt as i cannot find a support number. I CANNOT WAIT 2-4 WEEKS an only to recieve the box to send it away in! They still have to send ya a new one.
Where do you find support team contact number?(For New Zealand)
Has anyone done the update and been succesfull?
An why me, its not fair?
Any more help/info or updates to this problem would be nice. THANKS

I have the same problem. My PLAYSTATION 3 used to works PERFECT untill the 1.93 Update.
The problem is not the Laser, is the Rotor of the Discs. Please, check is your PLAYSTATION 3 Spins the discs.
A guy told me that on Linux, the Drive works fine (untill 2.00) but on the XMB it didn't.
The REAL problem is that we don't know if is that a Firmware Problem or if THAT problem broke the Drive's Rotor.
I wrote SONY but they don't respond and I don't know if they know about the Problem.
My PLAYSTATION 3 is a 60GB, bought in Janauary.
