    Wat is up with my PS3 scratching my CDs and FREEZING!!! Help me

    Hi there,

    I was playing Ridge racer, awesome game, and i have to say it SLOWED DOWN after a couple of minutes playing it!!!!!!

    Also after a while i heard a weird noise, adn i got a error disc message! I opened it and looked at my game disc, AND IT WAS SCRATCHED ALLLL OVER.

    Then like a complete idiot i tried to watch amovies, SAME THING SLOWED DOWN AFTER 5 MINUTES, and scratched UP MY DISC

    Both discs were new, and sealed, Also i noticed drops in framerates in MOVIES!!!! every 20 or 30 seconds

    Like when u use ur pc for alot of things, then try to watch amovie, same slow down


    Finally, I CANNOT PLAY MUSIC AND PLAY A GAME, LIKE I DID WITH MY 360

    Also the DOWNLOAD:

    Why the HECK cant i download a file, then go play a game while its downloading, THE DOWLOAD SPEED IS SLOWWWW. i have a 10 mb internet connect.

    And also if i turn off my PS3, while downloading somthing, i lose all progress!!!!!!!!!

    Honestly i liked the 360 better, coz everything is seemless.

    But im srue SONY will fix these problems soon

    ANY moderator or someone who knows PLEASE tell me are they releasing a patch or somthing to fix these annoying FRAMERATE slowdowns in PS3????

    Also if anyone knows how to or why this scratching dics happen?? Anyone else got that problem, ,Plz be honest.

    Normally i wouldn't do this, because really i would never care. But I think you're lying. Why? Not even the whole ps3 part. But since when did a pc sratch disks? Mine never has. And your the only person who has reported this problem, so either your special and got an individual error, or you lying. I'm choosing the latter.

    haven't heard of this but i can tell you that if you manage to scratch a bluray disk then you have to buy a new one because they are destroyed with scratches much easier than a regualar disk. the data is placed very close to the surface, that's why they hav 25gb disks. your ridge racer now has to be replaced. it can't be repaired.

    Ah, and the newbie allegations roll in. Nice first post. Either you are the unluckiest of all PS3 owners, or you're a liar trying to stir up trouble. For some odd reason, I'm leaning towards the latter.
    TRUE STORY||Talisman once bet NASA they could survive re-entry without a spacesuit. On July 19th, 1999, a naked Talisman re-entered the earth's atmosphere, streaking over 14 states and reaching a temperature of 3000 degrees. An embarrassed NASA publically claimed it was a meteor, and still owes Talisman a beer.

    ...

    There isnt anything to "scratch" the bottom of the BDdisk. Or the Xbox360 HDdvd's

    The people that were reporting the problems with the Xbox360's only reported them when they were laying the Xbox on its side WHILE THE DISK WAS SPINNING. They were incredebly stupid people.

    However, if you knew how any CD drive worked, you'd know that there is nothing to scrach up the disk. Their is a head, that raises the disk off the tray (therefore, the disk cant be stratched by the tray) then a lazer reads the data off the disk and is about a centameter away from the disk. There is nothingto scratch the disk with... unless again, you were stupid enough to change the position of the (fill in your game device here) while the disk was spinning.

    But perhaps the main reason that i dont believe you, is that your typing in "I need attention" all caps. >.>

    There are a lot of Sony haters who go on forums spreading their libel in an attempt to discredit/defame/or otherwise damage the Sony image, and consequently the PS3, for whatever their reasoning is.

    Edit: You don't have to be a blind yes-man and proclaim that the PS3 is the best and agree with what we are saying 100%. There are many people on these forums of varying backgrounds, personalities, and interests, yet we all get along fine. We PS3 fans even get along pretty well with most of the Xbox 360 fans here. Unfortunately, you come across as someone who's only interested in complaining and defaming the PS3 for the sole purpose of touting the Xbox 360, which you "honestly[...]liked[...]better, coz everything is seemless." Which is the first thing from you that I honestly believe.

    Probably because your talking about your disks freezing and then you managed to drift onto about... 3 different subject basically talking crap about sony's console.

    Can't play music and games at the same time.
    Downloading Files are too slow.
    Oh, and You can't play games while downloading stuff.

    Also when you type half of your post in all caps, it makes me believe you less. It just seems childish. It's not going to get the point across more, it just aggravates people. So maybe if you calm down and show a little maturity more people will believe you, in the mean time, have fun with your special problem.

    Fanboyism? try personal experience. I had a 360 and would rent games all the time. I rented saints row, played for a couple hours untill i got a disc read error. Popped open the disc tray to find a scratch that was in a form of a perfect circle that was not there before. It was quite deep and was not man made. I returned it for another saints row, made sure NO scratches were present on the cd, brought it home and played. EXACT same thing happined again and at that point i returned my xbox 360 to the store.

    I don't know what you think we were gonna help you with mate. You've failed to provide any proof, a very bad description, and if its true, your screwed, go phone sony and they'll give you another when they can.

    Try to speak in a mature manner and you are more likely to be treated in a mature way.... Punctuation, capital letters, but not too many!

    A fanboy is someone who is overly loving of one certain company.

    Wow first good response i get,


    Im not trying to defame PS3, hey i paid lots of money for it, and TO ME it is the best. But i cannot deny the problems it has

    I thought someone here can help, but i guess the thing is still very new, a baby if u will.

    I have two questions for you though:

    1- Why did everyone think i was making things up??? Noone here ever complains

    2- What is a fan boy.

    Oh ok thnx, thats what fanboy means lool

    well if im a fanboy of anything, i would say i am a PS2 fan, i have one in my car, and one

    in my home. But in all honestly i am having problems with my PS3, its kinda slow at times, and i cannt play music in the background while playing, and the download page is like a very slow web site. Where u have to wait and watcht he progress bar rise, before u can do anything!!


    I dont know im thinking of adding a PS3 to my truck, do u think it would over heat and die?? Because i will put it under the rear seat, and run the wires to the two screens in back and front.

    But i fear it would not get enough ventilation and die on me

    See i get the SAME EXACT PROBLEM, but with my PS3.

    What happened with ur XBOX, did u return it ad get ur money back??

    Coz im thinking of doing this, and get a 360 which had been out for a while now, and should have no errors. Plus its cheaper

    anybody notice how its almost always the new users who post up these problems? until i hear from a legit user with some credibility, i call BS.
    Microsoft spokesperson:"Yes, it is true. As part of our standard and ongoing process of analyzing repair data, we recently noticed a higher than usual number of units (360s) coming in for repair."
