Recently my ps3 games started to freeze. It happened when I moverd my ps3 upstairs and played madden 08 and right in the middle of the game it started to freeze and at first i did'nt think it was such a big deal so i let it rest, but the other day I tried again and it freezed again while i was playing the game and then i started get worried. The strange thing is that everything still works fine I can bring up the xmb menu and quit the game, but most of the time the ps3 resets itself.
Its a very strange problem, the more times i retry, the earlier it freezes ( not only with madden 08). Sometimes it can't even read the disc after reset. I'm still able to play demo's so i guess it's something with the disc drive. It also makes a repetetive noise when the game freezes. I tried holding the eject button to reset the drive, i formatted in 3 different ways and i want to make sure if there isn't a solution before calling sony because i'll probably won't see my ps3 for a few months then. I also noticed that cd's and dvd's do work so ps2 games are fine.
please help me
