    Yeah, the used 80GB 2USB PS3 i got from gamestop will not play any cds or dvds.
    is there something special i have to do, or should i just take it back to gamestop for them to fix.
    i have a year protection warranty.

    THANKS!

    assuming the cds/dvd's were clean and usually readable you should take it back ASAP. the fat ps3's especially launch ones are notorious for failed drives, and their getting hard to come by too. If you don't mind better off getting a slim.

    He shouldn't throw it away if he has a warranty backing it.

    Take it back and get a refund or replacement. Slim is more reliable though.

    Not really you just made yourself look like an asshole [​IMG]

    Just like how OP should have only clicked the submit once you should have only posted once to say not to to post the same thing three times either that or realized that some people do have internet problems and just not said anything at all.
