i am not sure if anyone else out there has or encountered the same problem as i have. I recently just purchased a new playstation 3 (80GB) HD.Haviung upgraded to the latest version 2.01 and also having installed the updates, i am still quite surprised to see the system having constant "hanging" while playing games online or offline.
Other than the normal freezing problems, i recently left the system turned on for 7hours. I was playing Resistance and i kind of dozed off...not that its a boring game but i was just too tired. When i woke up, i found the game froze (which i thought was a common sighting) so i just reset and rebooted the system. To my horror...once i reboot it, it didnt detect the disc. It jus went to the main screen and acted as if no disc was loaded into the system. I even tried other discs and the same happens...no detection no nothing. I have also reformatted my system thus loosing all my saved games but still..it didnt detect the discs i inserted.
This is strange...did i burn out the blu ray disc player by leaving it on for a straight 7hours? Or what could be the reason to it? I have done all possile solutions Sony has offered and still couldnt get the system to play my game. How can a 7 hours beating ruined the disc player when the system is brand new (2 weeks old!)
What do you guys think or suggesT? Would it be unreasonable of me to demand a one for one exchange?
