Tried that too, even in safe mode, when safe mode said it was corrupted. but they aknlowedged data was corrupt and fixed patch today. currently patching to see if they fixed the problem

ohhhh strange that some consoles, like mine, havent had a single problem, and some other does.

Yeah its shocking.. but as stated im on an old fat 80 gig. and the patch goes from 29% to 100% in a second.. when patching... and blu ray still not working. It just really sucks. everything i've owned has been sony, and havent had a problem with them.
dvd players, stereo's. back on original ps1, i still have a original ps1 that works perfectly. but when they decided to go to the constant update things, shoulda known something was bound to happen...
I give up. 3 attempts at updating and it goes from 32% to 100% even updating from safe mode..

Yea, same here 40gb PS3 Spiderman Blu-Ray bundle. Using FW 3.56 and Blu-Ray games and Movies dont play or get recognized by the system. The loading clock will spin then just stop. It see's DvD's just fine though. I've tried Safe mode step 3 and rebuild database. Im trying to Play RDR, so I deleted my UC2 game data to see if reinstalling it would fix, dont see the Blu-Ray. So no go.
At the moment I got a $400 DVD PLAYER.

When can we expect a FIX? If it reads DvD's just fine, and not Blu-Ray the drive is fine, correct? Its a Software Issue?
Can 3D Blu-Ray updates in the firmware be the cause?

Yay more people its affecting. I'm not alone. im not a loser!!
But on a more serious note. This problem is really aggitating me. After all the steps i've tried, and I'll be damned if I left $ony swindle me out of 100 bucks for a repair. i dont have that type of cash atm. :/
