i think i tried that but i'll try it again when i can get a few minutes at home. thanks for the info though! really hopes this will do something but i'm skeptical too say the least.. will post back when i a chance to try this
and then i remembered, how are you gonna hook up the ps3 straight to the bd when the ribbon cable that does that job goes to controller board not the drive?? sorry unless i'm forgot something and i may have at the moment but i don't see how you're hooking the bd straight to the ps3, can you help me out here?
