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

Sponsored Links
229w ago - 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 [Register or Login to view links]."

Maybe this will lead to the ability to flash the drive like in an xbox.

yes the firmware is encrypted.. it was dumped from multiple drives some time ago via linux i think.. but without a decryption key.. please someone correct me if im wrong!

the only thing i can see this being useful for is getting correct game dumps.. i think someone mentioned the boot flag area of the disk that cant be accessed with a normal drive.. but i would imagine you would need to RE the firmware to figure out how to make the drive read those sectors.. BUT.. the firmware is encrypted so thats out..

I think it's about recorded media bit-setting/book type. The default settings are -R DL and +R DL respectively, but on some drive you can write them as DVD-ROM.
