Blu-Ray drive (2 of them) stop spining/reading/loading –
I have 2 bluray drives that have stoped spining/reading/loading and ejecting. The blue light on the PS3 is on but it wont do anything. I swap the games drives and board to the original and it was working for 3 days but just stop. So I swaped back and still nothing so its the system not the driveIm sure cause when I put it in my other PS3 it spinns reads and ejects. Anyone know why. Im on Kmeaw 3.55 cfw
When you swap the drive into the machine it works in, are you also changing the logic board, or just remarrying it using the same logic board?
If you are swapping the logic board to make it work, then that sounds like the culprit.
Yeah I do change the boards at the bottom of the drive. Ill simplify it. I have a drive that doesnt eject with goes to my 20gig and a perfect drive that go to a 60gig. I took the drive out the 60gig took the board off. Swaped the board at the bottom of the 20gig drive and put it on my 20gig PS3 and it worked for 3 days. Now it stoped doing anything so I swaped the boards back and installed it back on the 20gig and still nothing. So I but it in my 40gig and it spins and everything it wont load cause the drive is BC and my 40gig isnt but it did spin.
are u sure that those 2 bluray drives are switchable?

If it spins up when in another machine, on the same logic board (but obviously won't load due to not being married) then it's definately not a problem with the drive itself.
