And how many movies do you think need to be dual layer BD?

It does not add up to hardware problems at all. It's either something specific that UC3 is using and something that Sony screwed up in firmware. That 's my firm belief. Pure guess, but a new copy protection that UC3 is using that fails or something like that. The severe errors - endless reading operation, unit suddenly shutting down - that appear to be hardware failing suggests that. Just guessing...

It does not add up.

Ok guys I was just thinking and I had a thought. I have never used my ps3 to play blue ray movies.

   So I tried and guess what it does the exact same thing as my UC3 disk. don't show up and makes the same loadig sounds. so hope someone can help now and at least it give us something to try and see.

      now what?

Your Blu-Ray lens is probably broken. Sorry about that.

Maybe the lens can't read dual-layer discs anymore?

Yeah, I've seen your posts, but there is no copy protection involved (you can even extract files from the UC3 disc in a PC BD-ROM drive).

There are a lot of movies which are dual-layer and some games too, like GOW3, R3 etc.

ok so it's not copyrite prob. I talked to a source and he told me there has been this issue twice before with sony updates.

    as of this moment have not seen any resolution to those issues.but his feeling is that it is an update issue

and to give sony some time to fix it.

same happend 2 me..

The game starts 2 load till that spinning ring, but nothing gonna happend after. -.-

I bought this Ps3 back in November 2011 (after my 1st Ps3 having the exact same Issue with Uncharted3)

soo.. i honestly doubt that the problem is on my PS3 or the disc (Disc looks good and my Ps3 is pretty new)

Srsly.. Screw ND & Sony.

Nuff said

Technically dual-layer discs are more than 24GB. Visually they look different ("oily surface pattern").

KZ3, GOW3, R3 are dual-layer games.

Yes there is.

In the center there is a ring about 3mm wide saying Anumber-Anumber on single layer disks. On dual layers there are two such rings inside eachother and one saying A and one B in the last part.

cool thanks, was just reading on some of the vita firmware and it really looks to me that it may be in conflict with the ps3

  something about being able to play your ps3 games on the vita so they must be working in the ps3s firmware.
