I then bought a laser off fleabay for 62 buckaroos with shipping included and installed it according to various instructions from many sources (I am paranoid like that about screwing up my investments), including YouBoob. PS3 has been a nice addition to my other toys and the kids love the Guitar Hero X-Mas present too!
BTW, all of my PS2 games have worked without a glitch.
Thanks for your reply and sorry about my late reply on my part. I have since experienced the beeps as you described, but it did not work for me. I knew that the 60gb used PS3 I bought would not read disks, but I was fairly certain it would be the laser since they had been having trouble with their lasers, for whatever reason you want to attach to it.
