    Does anyone have a way of connecting the ps3 blu ray drive onto a pc so i can extract the firmware from it? If you dont know how to exactly than just make a guess but make sure its a decent guess.

    Looks good. I was thinking about putting wire in the slots on that and somehow wireing it up to my pc but then i thought my pc would new drivers for the device installed on it and i dont know where i can get the drivers. im not gonna solder anything on the br-d till i know it will acctually work. just incase anything does happen it would be nice if someone could find me a link to another br-d i could replace my ps3 with.

    This is the least expensive one I could find from a reputable company: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106037

    This is also a pretty damn good deal, considering you're only about $10 above the price of getting a 25GB Bluray blank disk on top of the Liteon drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827248005

    But overall, you won't be seeing prices drop until Bluray is further embraced by the end of the year. Right now, there are so few Bluray burners that there isn't a real reason to lower the price. But considering companies like BenQ are releasing their burners in August, I can guarantee that the price will drop by around $100 by the end of the year. These are the same prices that DVD Burners were at before they became more plentiful, after all.

    May I ask why you want to dump the firmware of the BD?

    You should dump the firmware in its Flash ROM by hardware.
