PS3 games freeze
I just got a Slim PS3 that has 4.30 CFW Rogero (I think it's version 1.04 - because I can see the 'Install Package Files' thing on XMB)
Anyways, I've put game discs to make sure everything's working. PS3 can read and load a game disc without any problem, but after 1 or 2 mins in game... the game freezes... usually happens during or after a movie (i.e. intro). I've tried MW3, MW2 and Resistance. All have the same problem.
Is it because of the blu-ray laser or the CFW 1.04 version? I heard that some 1.04 version people had similar problems but I could be wrong...
Thanks in advance
It's trying to tell you to play better games.. That's all. Lol nah there shouldn't be any issues. It's the laser...you don't need the disc drive to play games anyhow.. Just make sure ones in there when you boot up your backups. ftp games/ rip to internal or play from external.
You sure it's the laser?
I'll rip a game and see if the backup reports the same issue. If there's no freeze with a backup, then I guess it has to be the laser.
EDIT - I'm suprised, new PS3 slim lasers are cheap now. I guess I can replace it if I want to. I know, I'd have to open the Slim and get the laser version.
Ok, no freeze with backups. That's fine, but now the disc icon (from the bdrive) doesn't appear even though a disc is already inserted. I tried re-inserting, nothing. However, when I turn the PS3 off and on, sometimes the disc icon is back. Also, sometimes I get "80010514" error alot when I load a backup
So it seems I need to fix it, but I'm not sure whether or not to buy a new laser deck + laser, or just the laser itself
