It seems like right now it is a big problem with the ps3 owners. I ve heard there is a class action lawsuit agains t them. you can read about it here:
in my case:
I was playing mw2 yesterday and right at the end of a level (spec ops, wetwork) it frooze and i had to restart the ps3...since then it can t read disk and give me an error code: 80010514.. from time to time, after it s been close a while. i can read disk but only for the console to crash later again. I have open the ps3 myself and cleaned the bluray lens. (i don t have warranty anyway since i lost the receipt). it made the game work only to crash again at the same place (in game). I m going to try a system data base rebuild.. if it doesn t work.. a format and restore and if not.. either change the hard drive or the blu ray lens.. let me know if you guys know solutions for this problem.
i have the first series of ps3 80gb that came with motorstorm.
i have the latess firmware installed on.
And it gives me the error 80010514 wich seem to be blu ray related..
only after a lot of reading, it seem to me like it s a bad sector or a corrupt file on the hard drive. we'll see and 'll keep you updated.
i want to see how many people had this problem before. pls reply here.
here's a solution a found that seems to be from the exact same problem as me.
'' I heard someone mention that is was a hardware failure due to the update causing the laser to run hotter than normal (only on older lasers that have now been replaced with a higher quality version). I’m not sure if this is possible, but it is the only explanation that I found. You want to make sure that you get a laser that is not a refurbished one from China (white clip), but new (brown clip). I will repost my original comment here: I received the 80010514 error over a month ago and was able to fix the problem by replacing the Blu-ray diode. It started while I was playing COD MW2. The game would freeze after a multiplayer match and I could not eject the disc without first turning off the PS3 using the switch on the back. I have the 80gb MotorStorm bundle edition. The early models have the cheap diode with only one laser and has since been replaced by a dual laser. I was able to play everything on my hard drive, but no Blu-ray games or movies. Before replacing the laser I was able to “rebuild the file structure” and this would allow the PS3 to recognize the disc again and I could play an online match. It would freeze in the same spot every time. I ordered my part from the Ebay seller gamepartswarehouse and I used the instructions from the Blu-ray.com thread entitled (Un-Official) PS3 Laser Replacement Manual & Video (Google it). This particular instruction only applies to the 80gb MotorStorm bundle model. My PS3 was out of warranty and $150 was too much to pay Sony considering I could get a brand new slim (not a refurbished PS3) and I would lose all of the movies I downloaded from the PSN. I believe Sony is completely aware of the cheap laser and is just refusing to own up. There is a class action lawsuit in this regard filed in California. The repair wasn’t extremely difficult, but it wasn’t easy. You can get it done at a local repair shop for around $100 (I paid $50 for the laser alone). I hope this helps. I was excited when I was able to prove that the 80010514 in my instance was due to a bad diode. And at the same time mad at Sony for allowing such a cheap part to be put in their machine. ''
more news here:
'' According to the complaint, Kennedy purchased a PS3 in January, which operated without any problems until he installed the firmware update in September. The update, when downloaded, caused the Blu-ray drive to malfunction. Other complaints report the same problem: the drive would play a game or movie properly for roughly ten minutes and would suddenly freeze up; the affected drives were then unable to recognize or play a disc of any type from there on. ''
"Thousands of Sony PlayStation 3 ('PS3') video game owners who downloaded a system update required by Sony found that the update caused their PS3 units to malfunction and actually damaged the hardware on many units," the complaint claims. "For owners who sustained hardware damage from the Sony-required update, Sony is charging a $150 repair fee per unit. Sony, responding to the numerous complaints about the unacceptable effects of the defective update, released a further, optional update that it claimed 'improves system stability'—yet performance problems continued, and the new update did nothing to remedy the systems of users who sustained hardware damage."

I'd hate to break this to you, but you've already agreed not to file class action lawsuits when you agreed to the updated Terms of Service, and yes that IS legally binding despite how much denial you want to apply to it.
And why is this coming back up again?
I got a bluray named saw4 directors cut, that will not read nomore on my 120 slim or 320slim or both. However everything else does fine so far. The movie gives me an error code after spinning forever.
After i finish cleaning my house ill try it in both and update accordingly. I sent the 320 in to get fixed after the 4.10 update. So if its that one apparently it wasnt fixed. It was really locky scrolling thru the XMB and still is sometimes. Its bluray was louder to and still is, however the two 160gig slims i got black friday last year are just as loud, their bluray player that is. Ill try the movie in both systems i got hooked up or all three. I dont want to get no dust on my blurays, cause they are precious to me. I even wash my hands before changing them.
