I rang sony he told me to put in a CD if it read then put in a DVD if it read then try the game again it worked!  He said trying different media types can fix it!

If you have your receipt and its still under warranty call sony and return it for free. If the BLU-RAY laser has burnt out no amount of reformatting is gonna fix it.

OMG Thank you sooooooo Much!!,I was playing COD 5 WAW and after finally beating "Their land ,Their blood" on veteran it froze on me (Luckily the trophy unlocked first or I woulda been extremly pissed LOL) but yea it froze on me but the ingame XMB would still work ,So I quit the game and it took a little bit to return to the XMB(Longer than normal)and it would read the game(COD WAW) so I ejected and it wouldnt eject,I restarted the PS3 and it made the 3 beep sound and flashed at me for a minute or so,But it finally shut down,I restarted it back up and again it would read the game but it did Eject the game when I pressed Eject..So thats when I started to almost cry(Grown man about to cry = Not good) so I started searching for answers cause only thing I heard before with other similar problems from other people was to Format and **bleep** and dman I did not wanna do that cause I have a crap load of stuff Downloaded and a whole buncha game saves/date but I ran across your BIG BOLD BLUE writing(In which blue has always been my fav color) and tried it immeadiatly and I am truely thankfull cause I am off all week from work for christmas and didnt wanna be stuck playing my Wii..LOL but again THANKS so much man,Add me on PSN if you read this
