Thought I'd drop a message here regarding an oddity i experienced when AC:Brotherhood arrived this past Thursday.
I booted up the game, and after a few seconds my 80GB FAT PS3 reported an 80010514 error. Doh!. I ejected the disc and tried again, same thing. Powered off/on PS3 and tried again, same thing.
A little research via Google reveals 80010514 errors relate to BRD drive(r) errors and/or PS3 firmware FS corruption. So seeing this I booted the PS3 into maintenance mode and selected 3. Restore File System. Once finished and the PS3 rebooted, I retried AC:B. Still getting 80010514 error.
Now the odd thing is that aside from the AC:Brotherhood game, all my other BRD games including Black Ops and MoH all work fine. The only game I have that causes the problem is AC:Brotherhood. This caused doubt in mind that the problem was BRD or FW related, possibly a fault disc.
This morning, I thought I'd give it another go and tried starting the game, this time however instead of receiving an 80010514 error I get 8001050F error. The later error you may recall was the error code many PS3 owners got earlier this year when PS3s around the world mistakenly thought 2010 was a leap year and subsequently knobbled access to the PSN.
Seeing this error code prompted me to think back to the resolution for the 'clock fix' i.e. resyncing your PS3's clock to an internet source, so I reset the time in Time and Date Settings and tried restaring AC:B again, voila! The game now starts fine. No 8001050F or 80010514 errors.
I can't be certain but as soon as the boot process got past the point where the 800 errors were raised it immediately detected an update for the game to download indicating that maybe there is a relationship between PS3's internal clock and connectivity to PSN for game updates. Who knows? I'm just glad I got the issue resolved. I can now rock on with AC:B, great game BTW.

Oh well back to square one again, I am know receiving the 80010514 error when I try to boot AC:Brotherhood. Its weird how all my other BRD games work fine.
This is the only one giving me this error ... help someone ... I would appreciate if a forum mod could 'enquire' regarding any known problems with this error and AC:Brotherhood, surley FreakyBobo and I are not the only ones experiencing this problem.

Well its fixed.
Wonna know how I did it? And nope I didn't change the BRD lens or anything like that.
I just deleted Medal of Honor's game data from the PS3's internal HDD and bam, AC:B now works no more stupid 80010514 error message. Yay
Seems the MoH data was causing the problems, cos now its no longer installed AC:B works each and every time I start it.
Glad I didn't phone Sony now, it would have been a case of £130 for a refurb to resolve a fault with a BRD that never existed in the first place.
Now I am happy.

Having the same problem here, I even had gamefly send me a replacement disc, and I'm getting the same result. This error seems to have popping up for a lot of people for Black Ops as well. Either some of the newer games are being burned on different discs that are having issues, or these games' install data is doing something to PS3s.
I'm also now getting the problem with The Force Unleashed 2, which came in the mail from Gamefly today... I've tested a bunch of other games, and it's just these two... I hope we get some answers soon.

Hey guys, thought I would follow up on my last post. The fix I mentioned above turned out to be a short term solution with 8010514 returning soon after
I eventually got so fed up I contacted Sony and spent nearly 2hs in dialogue with various support staff. In short the support team were aware of the issue and insisted it was not localised to AC:B and that either my HDD or BRD was the cause of the failure.
The took me through several options of restoring my PS3, reformatting the HDD and restoring system update flash. None of the options fixed the problem with error code 8010514 persisting when trying to start AC:B.
In the end I arranged to have my FAT PS3 40GB replaced under Continuous Play cover. The new PS3 arrived the next day (same model) and after weeks of not being able to play AC:B I was finally able to successfully start the game. No errors.
I am using the same HDD, so I believe the problem is indeed down to either a failing BRD or a corrupted system update.
So in short, I'd recommend contacting Sony and arranging for a warranty swap out/remanufactured PS3 for £130 or Continuous Play replacement.
