Please could you help me. I Receive the following error message when trying to launch a demo game from the Hard Disk. "an error occurred during the start operation. (80010510)" Theses are demo games downloaded from the Sony store. When I insert a Blue-Ray game and then launch demos from the Hard Disk I get the following error. "an error occurred during the start operation. (8001050B)"
The PS3 also does not read the blue ray discs of ridge racer 7 and the free movie, it actually does not even see them and nothing is displayed in the menu screen. It does however read Playstation 2 Games Only. It recognises DVD films as "Data" and therefore does not play them. It recognises PS1 games as audio Cd's.
I've tried the following:-
1) Restore PS3 OS + Full Format
2) Restore Default Settings
3) Replaced with New Hard Drive
4) Used the clean blue-ray laser tutorial
5) Disconnected Blue-Ray drive from PS3 board, but same error message when trying to play demos from hard disk.
Currently the only thing I can do is play movie trailers from the HDD that I have downloaded from the sony store and play mp3's that i have copied accross from my usb memory stick to the PS3 Hard Drive.
My confusion is that I can play movies off the Hard Disk, but not the demo games off the Hard Disk. Is this a hardware problem of software issue ?
