ps3 fat 60g disk driver not reading disk even after new disk drive
ps3 fat 60g disk driver not reading disk even after new disk drive –
ok i got a ps3 60g fat on fw 4.11 and my disk drive wont read any disks i put a diffent disk drive in and its still not readying disks, can anyone help me
Hi mate, the only way to replace a complete ps3 disc drive is to remarry it while on firmware 3.55 or below, being on 4.11 I'm pretty sure that it will have to be sent in to sony, that's why the new drive isn't working.
Have you change the PCB from your old drive to the new one?
You MUST use the original PCB that came with your PS3. I'm not sure if you can do it or not in 4.11 but I guess you can, the pcb is where all the data/encryption is, so you are only changing the "mechanical" part of your drive.
Good Luck Mate.
well that sucks and where is that on the board, i just googles it and not seeing any pics of where its at

This is an easy fix. You dont need to be on 3.55 or lower like that guy said or remarry it. You can only remarry it if you dont have the logic board that is on the bottom of the drive. If you changed the board off the 1st drive and put it onto the new drive everything should work perfectly. Im a professional console repair. If youd like you can check my page and you will see my Thread that is posted! Hope this helped.
