Check the Main Laser cable from the Motherboard to the Drive itself. You may have a bad connection at the motherboard clip. Or a bad cable. Take the cable from the other PS3 you tried the drive on. If it works then that is your problem.
Also, did you check the BD-ROM Driver board? It may have a bad Disc motor IC.
