I have a sneaking suspicion that the BluRay Drive is "KEYed" to a PS3 Motherboard, much in the same way that a 360 DVD Drive is.

Can anyone confirm this??

Thanx

the serial eprom on the board has the serial number stored in it for the mother board , swapping this chip between the two boards will make the new one work on your console
