Default PS3 Help? EYE

Hello I had a question about jailbroken PS3. Sorry in advance if this is posted in the wrong topic area. I was wondering if you can play backup copies of PS3 games from a HD like the PS2 does with MC? My Bluray eye took a dumb and I really wish to play MW3 again. The drive replacement looks a bit complicated but not entirely difficult to do but i was wanting more of a software fix to the problem. I hate to rip it apart or send it to a stranger, or worse pay Sony to fix it. Thanks for any help/advise you may offer or give to this problem.

Information on my system is it is the 120GB CECH-1a (idk if this number is correct) version. I have upgraded the HD to a 500GB HD. It plays DVD/CD but will NOT play any kind of blurays. Not movies or games. It makes that ejection sound and nothing shows up on the XMB. It still plays installed games. I have tried factory restore and the hold eject button down for 15 secs and a HD lens cleaner. I have also tried the hold eject button down unplug it from the back and plug back in while holding the eject button down fix. Its the bluray eye that is out i am sure of it.

Again thanks for any help/advice with my problem and if you need any more info just ask.

There is a homebrew called Multiman,if am correct it lets you play backups off an external HDD.I dont have much info on that though.
Maybe someone else can help you much better.

Thanks for the assistance. I will look into that. Right now I am considering just replacing the drive myself. I just don't want to mess it up.

dude you cannot just replace BD with another one .the new one should be remarry to your PS3 and it need some extra work with some extra tools .

i suggest you update your Firmware to the latest CFW either Rogero or Rebug and then install the latest multMAN and copy your Games to your PS3 Internal HDD or External HDD and play them

you can change the lens but the whole board you cannot you have to remarry it again and its goin to some process .

if you have jailbroken PS3 then you can easily backups your Games via multiman or you can FTP it .

Thank you that is useful information that I was looking for. Its the PCB board not OBD. It looks to far complicated for me to change the lens. I was wondering if their was any good guides out there for this other process to run games from the HD? I wont be trying this till after Blitz sale. Going to see if Walley world will offer a 120 GB for 150 or something. I would like to have another one on hand in case I mess it up with ghost pre-ordered (Digital copy) LOL.

simply to play games off hdd you need to have a ps3 with CFW then you will be able to play games off hdd .

i still dont know if your PS3 is jailbroken or not i mean does it have any CFW on it ?
