This seems to be a problem with GT6 that many people have experienced. Maybe stick to 5 or find a way to play Forza.

DVDs have reigon codes. A PS3 sold in the US will only play DVDs and Blu-Rays that have a region code of 1. DVDs sold in Brazil have the region code of 4, so they will not work.

It is either firmware or lens problem. In either case the PS will be replaced or repaired for free by Sony, this is considered factory defect.

Contact Sony at the number listed on the PS manual, or see PS3™ | Support online.

About the lens problem, a BRD device with lens issue may be able to read DVD and CD but not BRD.

1. In the PS3's XMB, go to the left and select Settings.
2. In Settings, go into SoundSettings.
3. Select Audio Output Settings, and select the type of cable you use.
4. The next page will give you an option for Automatic or Manual. Select Manual.
5. The next page will give you a list of all the audio settings the PS3 can output. Unselect every option except the ones grayed out, which are required.
6. The next page will ask you to confirm the selections, say yes.
7. (OPTIONAL) For those using HDMI cables, now that we have set them to default settings, we can actually start the process over again, but instead of selecting Manual we will select Automatic. This will force the PS3 to scan the devices again and set up the correct list of output modes.

try with another HDMI cable.
also, is your ps3 connected to the net? some newer bluray support functions that are not available on the player and they need an update.
given how old the ps3 is, it may not fully support playback.

Go over the instructions at this link carefully http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/settings/connectwireless.html
If the connection still fails after following these instructions, follow the on-screen instructions to check your settings. You may have to get some info from your ISP and refer to the instructions supplied with your router.

I had the same problem bud. I rushed and contacted sony but the next day my friend told me a great solution tht safed me 150 $. Well basicly your ps3 is lika a PC. All you nerd to do is to get to the hard drive menu. By holding the power button for 10 sec but do that for 3 times. That will take you to the blue menu. From there just reset your hard drive and wola brand new.
Ps Same thing happend after i downloaded the house app. booo to the house lol

A potentially failing hard drive. You can swap it out (and upgrade your storage capacity) for a reasonable price. Could be the optical drive as well, but that's a little bit harder than swapping out the hard drive.
