Sounds like its kaput! google is your friend yet again google.co.uk/sea…rch

seems to be a prob with blu-ray as most others state theirs can play normal dvds and ps2 games just not blu-ray discs. ring up sony and get a new one sent out.

alot of 40GB's have bad drives.

If yours is a 40.

when i googled it, there seemed to be as many 60GBs as 40GBs
