Thread: USB BD Rom for PS3?
USB BD Rom for PS3?
came across this external BD Rom: http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/870039...e/Product.html
It got me thinking whether it is possible to use it on a PS3 and if it would allow blu rays from a different region.
Besides PS3 is region-locked device despite of its ability to play PS3 games from other regions since PS1/PS2/DVD/BD region restrictions are still here and it would be it would be unbelievable to imagine a PS3 allowing to change BD drive region five times like PC software does.
I'm 100% sure it will not work. There is no support, because there would be no valid reason to have 2 BR drives at once, according to Sony

A very long time ago i hooked up a cd then dvd ide drives through usb enclosure... and of course nothing happened as expected.
maybe if you flash your bd usb to multistandard (if a multi firmware exist) but i dont know if the console can check region.
