Just what I said. The PS3 will make struggling sounds for a while, followed by an eject sound (without actually ejecting it.) However, it's success varies from game to game.

Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time works 90% of the time.

Skyrim only ever worked once after a number of tries. Same with Arkham Asylum.

Help?

Sounds like the drive is dying. Not much you can do other than deal with it until it stops loading games completely or get it fixed.
Teenage angst has paid off well, now I'm bored and old.

Given how big they are, I'd say that they are.
Huh, might test some of my non DL, see how that works out. And if it's just the drive going bad then... well, damn.

Your laser is dying, it will work on games still, but certain ones it will just be a pain in the butt on and refuse to work most, if not all, of the time. Especially if there's even tiny specks of microscopic anything on the disc side, or faint finger prints, anything really.

Cross your fingers you get clerks who take it just on the fact it powers up and don't try and play an actual game

This is the exact thing that happened to me as well. Then it got the YLoD a day after. It happened 2 weeks ago.

Damn, maybe that 4.25 update really DID screw up something.
