My backward compatible PS3 has the wrong Blu Ray drive inside it
I bought a 60GB CECHA01 PS3 from eBay last week and found very quickly that it didnt work properly. It could play Blu ray discs and Playstation 1 discs fine, but if I tried a PS2 game or a DVD, it would never work. It wouldnt even show up on the XMB as an incompatable disc. I opened up the PS3 and found something that confused me. The drive inside was a BD-410, a model that from what i understand, shouldn't be able to work in a CECHA01. Naturally I thought that I had been tricked into buying a different PS3 than I wanted, but then other things didn't add up. The power supply (APS-226), the motherboard (COK-001), and everything else all seemed to be from a CECHA01, but the drive wasn't. How is this possible? What do I do to get it to work correctly?
Is this a good question?
