Hello, I have a PS3 where the blu-ray drive on it is broken and I do not have the funds to fix it. I have been looking into running games off of the hard drive but every one I have come across requires you to have a PS3 game in the blu-ray drive.
Is it possible to run a PS3 game off the HDD without requiring a disc in the drive? Cause I have the discs no problem, but without a working drive, the PS3 can't detect them to begin with. Also, I have my PS3 modded with the kmeaw custom firmware. I have no dongle or anything like that. Once I get the funds to pay for a dongle (unemployed at the moment) I intend to remarry a new PS3 drive to this system.
