Can i use the Blu-Ray drive of my PS3 to PC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Anyone knows how to detect the bluray drive of the ps3 to my pc? I just want to watch bluray videos and since my ps3 received the YLOD frown.gif, im thinking of just using the bluray drive instead of fixing it myself because i don't have time. I read a couple of articles on the web that it should be flashed or something. It would be great if anyone can provide a tutorial or step-by-step to this. Many thanks!!

Nope, there have been people trying this mod for awhile and they can't get much from it. There also aren't any cables you can run to a PC.

How about selling the YLOD PS3 and getting a BR Drive for your PC?

YLOD PS3 are hard to sell these days. I tried to sell it but no ones cares about a YLOD PS3. If it's not possible to use the bluray drive of the ps3 to pc, then maybe someday just i'll fix the YLOD problem.

Well, depending on how much you will take and location, a buddy of mine buys/repairs them. Or could re pair yours for a small fee.
