    Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else and what the solution might be.

    Have an 80GB or so PS3 (have it over 2 years now)

    I play maybe 3 times a month for 2 or 3 hours.

    Yesterday, on x-mas, us boys had a COD MW2 party and played straight for close to 4 hours. There was one update for COD at the beginning...that was all

    Today, I put the game in and it will not recognize that it is in there. There is No error message of the sort. The disk that usually pops up in the game section is not there. Just put it in and nothing. Put another game in and same problem. The disks are clean as a whistle but still nothing happens.

    Put a DVD in and it recognized it immediately and started playing.

    I started reformatting the entire HDD to see if a file is messing it up.

    Has this happened to anyone else? Is there a setting that someone might have put on that I am unaware of? Anyone have solutions to this problem?

    Thanks.

    Must have been a software glitch
