    My drive didn't exactly fail but the one and only time I ever rented a blu-ray movie my PS3 wouldn't play it. As soon as I inserted the movie it went to a black screen and said "cannot play video" or some shit. Tried to mess with the settings for an hour but was never able to make it play. I hope it was just the disc and my PS3 won't be doing that with every blu-ray movie. So far that's the only one I tried to play on my PS3.

    Mine does that every time I turn it off (for like half a second right before the screen goes blank). It only does it when connected through HDMI though.

    my old 40 gig's blu-ray drive also stopped reading. Sold the system for $120 with 2 games online... I think i could of fixed it by maybe opening it up and cleaning the lens. Anyways, i dint take the risk and bought a slim instead :/

    Same shit happened to me. Since mine is one of the BC ones, I'm gonna try to fix it. You can find the BR drives online for like $55-60 pretty much everywhere and there are instructions on how to do it yourself too.

    I will cry if my original 80GB dies. I rely on it for backward compatibility :hs:
