Just downloaded it today and my system won't read games or blu-ray and Sony hasn't acknowledged it yet. Please post if you have a Fat system or a Slim.

Nope not mine.

Are you sure that you haven't jailbroken, modified your PS3 or anything?

Sounds serious.

i dont think an ac update can screw your blu ray drive. your drive probably failed and needs replacing.

my apologies, i was upset and forgot to clarify. It's the new system update (3.56) for the PS3 not the new AC update.

My system has never been tampered with. The Sony forums aren't helping and and Sony is ignoring the situation.

I know you say you haven't done anything to this but I can understand the reason sony is holding off on helping as this problem is a side affect of people downgrading certain models of PS3.

altho this has happened in the past, if you look up how to get into the recovery menu (not the dev/service mode that has just been uncovered as that will also screw a 3.56 console) and using that you can make the console reinstall the bluray drivers.

Redownload it again.
It (fixed) now.
If it doesn't work, updatey our PS3 using a USB device and download the update from playstation.com
Be sure on the flash drive you have following labeled *Use ALL CAPS*:
PS3>UPDATE> -update 3.56 from ps.com-

I had issues with it downloading. I had to end up going to Safe Mode, plugging in a USB, and leaving it at 99% for over 30 hours until it finally updated. I heard the PS3 do a "whirr" at about 2 AM, got up, and played till the sun came up. Happy Alpha. =)
