Does anyone have any tips to get it to run? I have one of the PS3's with PS1\PS2 hardware. After selecting new game it just sits on a black screen.

Really? Mine seems to work just fine. I don't seem to have any problems except for the fact that Lara can not respond to some compound commands (like that's something new...).

Yea, ever since the new update my PS3 won't play Tomb Raider 1 or 2. After selecting Start Game it fails to load the next FMV

Also, could you tell me what PS3 you have and what firmware it's running?


I'd appreciate it.

The official PS3 site states there shouldn't be any problem. I've sold my PS3 though I did play TR2 on it, with no problems.

This should be pretty obvious but you did check that the disc is in good condition? Can you try it on another console?

You are probably less complicated than you think.

I know that they have played on mine before the latest FW updates. I tried them on the kiosk at the Wal-Mart running the previous version and they worked fine.

Well, there you have it, it's very likely a firmware problem - firmware's more concerned with fixing ps3 bugs than running ps1 discs. There's a chance that it's only the first FMV that's screwed up; maybe you could try starting a new game on another console, saving, and transferring the save file to your console.

Tried that with a save here and one I made. Didn't work but thanks.

Both games don't work for me either. What PS3 do you have and what firmware?

Is anyone having problems with the game freezing when trying to open the menu (press Select) or pressing Start to pause? It's only happened once so far at the start of 40 fathoms but after i started to explore a bit I pressed Select (not remembering what happened previously) and it worked.
