    PS3 Blu-ray Drive Connected and Recognized as Reader in a PC!


    This weekend Spanish PS3 developers at DemonHades (linked above) have shared some details and pics of a PS3 Blu-ray drive successfully connected and recognized as a reader in a PC.

    With the exception of the Lite-On DH-401S that can read PS3 game discs on a PC, this is the first time an actual PlayStation 3 PS-SYSTEM 302R drive has been reported as functioning on a standard PC.

    Many may recall last year the DemonHades Team first Mapped the JTag Port on PS3 Blu-ray Drive, and prior to that GodzIvan shared schematics for the PS3 Blu-ray drive pin-outs.

    To quote from DemonHades.org, roughly translated:

    "Our colleague has managed HadesTeam Calimba of connecting the PS3 BD player to the PC, as you all know the communication interface that uses the reader is bd flex belt so you do not have any type of connector for this work, so we have communicated BD reader to the pc to start to investigate more thoroughly.

    Jungleflasher as both dosflash recognize it. Another good news in PlayStation 3 research community for DHorg and his followers from other Web sites. More information is available http://www.demonhades.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=273&t=3355."

    Question PS3 Blu-ray Drive Connected and Recognized as Reader in a PC!

    So does this mean the PS3 BD Player has BD-R burning capabilities? Interesting...

    It looks like it, but doesn't red mean it doesn't have it, or the color of the circle doesn't matter?

    Great find, can anyone confirm if in fact it can write bd's? Because that will solve the problem forever, swap form ps3 to pc to burn backups. this is win.

    further down the line, maybe even make backup bd's with homebrew as in dump db on the drive then burn it on bd with out doing the bd drive swap.

    Hopefully this goes a long way

    This is indeed a great find next step is to dump the firmware and modify it. Looks like we need to start looking for cheap bluray writers and media

    Looking at the screenshot it also shows the PS3 can not read dual layer DVDs.

    Unless there are models of PS3 that can't read them it indicates that the features indicated are not correct.
