    So I just got a 40 gig and i try playing games but they will not even recognize, but if i put a dvd in then it'll play just fine. Do I got a defective system or is there something I am doing wrong?

    Since it's a 40 gig, it's an ollllld system.

    You probably got ripped off.

    If it's used, than the bluray drive may be giving out. Happened to mine. After awhile it'll freeze or not play bluray games and movies, but DVDs will be fine (and PSN games). If that's what happens to you, you'll need a new bluray laser or drive. More typical with the 20/60/80GB systems, so hopefully that's not what it is. :)
