how did you go about doing that? I've let the system sit, rebooted, etc. It will recognize my blu ray games, dvds, etc. just not my blu ray discs. I just don't want to do something that will accidentally format my system!

Sony Call agent just confirmed to me that a certain small % of PS3 consoles (slim and fat across all HD configs) are failing after the 3.61 update and says it has nothing to do with the update.

I do not have LA Noir and my 120GB Slim is now bricked after updating. The only common thing here is the "Update". That is a lot of coincidences there. Most of the time the simplest explanation is the most valid one.

i was nervous about updating my 1 mnth old slim ps3 to the new 3,61 update.  i waited about a week.  jus to see if it was jus my own paranoia.  so i downloaded it may 25, 2011.  before that no in game freezes , but today ive noticed a freeze up when i was playing borderlands.  it made me  feel real nervous and shocked cuz its never happend to me before the update, so i dnt knw.  i ve read other reports of people having this problem but with the fat ps3.  seems odd that a firware update would do this.  and i knw some people dont ventilate their ps3 or sme stuff.  my sits in the open, nothing is blocking airflow at all.  hell i even have my room fan on while im playing jus to ease my mind.  but i dnt knw.  it mad me mad and sad when i experienced the game freeze.  and i only updated cuz i was under impression the store was coming back thatn previous expected.  ill keep ya ll updated.  so far 1 game freeze while playing borderlands

"Sony Call agent just confirmed to me that a certain small % of PS3  consoles (slim and fat across all HD configs) are failing after the 3.61  update and says it has nothing to do with the update."

How can they say failing AFTER an update has nothing to do with the update?  Sounds like an oxymoron to me.

My phat (orig 80 GB) still freezes after v. 3.66. The picture feed that is, so it seems to be GPU related on my phat. I will try a swap to an old, not updated HD tho, just to see what happens.
