Ps3 HELP

My sons Ps3 is less then 90 days old, I bought it new. Anyhow when I put the games in it doesnt recognize it. No matter what I do, I even rebooted the whole system and nothing.

Called sony 2 weeks ago and still waiting for a box to return it in.

My neghbor said he had the same problem with his and he went to Fry's and bought the 120GB hard drive and it cost 60 bux. Is this correct, anybody else have this problem?

Who wants to race?

Replacing the hard drive isn't going to help the PS3 read the CD/DVD/BluRay's.

I haven't had any issues with mine.

maybe he mistakenly meant to say his XBOX 360 wouldnt read discs anymore, since they seem to be the ones with the RROD's and the CD drive failures???

Chances are you let it get too hot. I hope you're not letting it sit in an entertainment center.
