    Default PS3 Slim Blu Ray drive not reading games

    Read an audio cd okay, but not the games. I changed the laser lens unit, but still the same. I'm guessing a whole drive replacement is next?

    Not really as if you've changed the laser a whole drive isn't going to do anything else there is an ic chip on the board that fails as well but this board is paired to your motherboard so if buying a new drive you will still have the same problem as you will need to fit your old board.
    Have you tried the laser in another machine to rule it out or tried another game?
