PS3 work without Blu-Ray drive?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just bought a used 80GB PS3 (backwards compatible model) with a bad Blu-Ray drive in it. Everything else works, just the Blu-Ray drive don't. My question is, can I remove the bad Blu-Ray drive and continue to use the PS3 without a Blu-Ray drive inside until I buy a new Blu-Ray drive? Or is it dangerous/harmful to run the PS3 with no Blu-Ray drive installed.

I think you can run it without, as I have powered quite a few without and used it.
What happened to BR drive? Is something with a lense or with board under it?
You need to know that not any BR drive will work with your ps3, as in order to work you have to pair it with that small mobo under your BR drive that is attached to it and than attach it to ps3 mainboard.
