Replacement BD Drive. –
I've been offered a 40GB Playstation 3 for £50, the problem is that the BD drive doesn't read games.
Now since it's very cheap I was wondering how hard it would be to replace the BD drive, are the parts cheap?
If i choose not to replace it, will it affect furture firmware updates?
well it depends on which bluray drive it is but you can pick a working 1 up on ebay for around £20-£40 so wouldnt be to bad a price for the ps3 do you know what firmware it is running
the drive is married to the system.... so its not as simple as just swaping it, software will be required.
If you obuy the same drive you can swap the logic PCB without the need for software. If the logic board is bad, then you'll need to downgrade + remarry a new logic board
