    i have the same problem with not reading games was looking into buying a new drive but after a bit of research found out that if i bought one it wouldnt make any difference as it would not be married up to my ps3 mother board so would only read dvd and cd disc just wanting to know if this is true or if there is a way to remarry the drive up

    if you keep your old BD controller board and just connect it to a new drive i believe it should just work. if you think the BD card is faulty and have to replace the full unit. then yes it has to be remarried. but yes it can be done. i think you would need to be on 3.55 to do it though, as i dont think the tools work in 4.xx. i could be wrong though. things change fast lately with ps3.

    look in the forum for ps3 downgrading and brick fixing , Racer is smart he'll be able to aim you in right direction of files needed etc.

    rebug 4.25rex has a bd emulator mode if you make a dex flash file, and run it in full dex. then you don't need a bd drive at all but its not simple to set up.

    sounds a bit too much for me to don't understand all the rex dex and cex thing lol

    the converting to dex and back again isn't really worth the risks. i'm sure you can get help with remarrying the bd in the forum for ps3 brick repairs and downgrades, racer is a pretty smart and helpful person.

    if your bd drive is dead, you can use bd dummy, only working on cfw rebug rex

    might be a silly question but where would i find bd dummy is it i the tool box or is it another pkg i need to download?

    BigVern you need is BDEMU-355KM.pkg. I'm not sure what firmware you are using though as this was tested on Kmeaw CFW.
