    That sounds horrible! Your BD drive must be hosed. Is the drive damaging the discs (i.e. causing the scratches)?

    Sounds like something is catching in the rotation, like something may be warped? Idk...maybe its time to play ps3 doctor and open it up and see.

    i think so, because when the MGS HD cracked i thought its the case problem, but today i found PES 2012 has scratches on label face ( the upper ).

    Wow. First of all, don't put any more game discs in the PS3...

    It sounds as if the internal components of the BD Drive warped (overheating?) and is now officially a hazard to your collection. If you are handy and courageous enough, you may want to open it up and see what's going on in there. You can probably replace the drive yourself fairly cheaply. Otherwise, I would look into having either Sony or a Gameshop repair it for you.

    It sounds like the drive arm is out of alignment/calibration. You can easily re-calibrate the BD Drive, just follow a YT vid.

    That was the same thing mine was doing. Thought it was the laser, so I replaced it... no dice. Possibly it can be fixed, but I gave up and just bought a new PS3.

    There is a screw gear that pulls in the disc. This might be damaged. Pull it open and take a look (take plent of pics! I'm curious!)

    There is only one screw gear in the PS3 BD Drive at it is used to move the laser, not the disk. The disk is brought in by four rollers. The plastic white gears that move the rollers are on the opposite side of the mechanism throwing that possibility out the window. It may be that there is a component out of alignment causing the disks to scrape on the laser housing. The laser housing has many jagged, strong edges that are more than capable of destroying a disk.

    Either open up the BD Drive and fix it yourself or pay somebody to do it for you. Refer to YouTube videos on how to accomplish this task if you do it yourself.
