If your game is less than 90 days old, and you didn't scratch the game (if it came that way), you'll have no problem asking Sony for a replacement, because the disc is defective. This means of replacement is typically at no cost, other than shipping.

No- only the EyeToy camera will work with games that support digital camera features.
