    Is it possible to buy a new cable as I recently bought a ps1 with a broken disk drive cable and want to fix it for my brother.

    The cables are called fpc, you should be able to find some if you do a google search for your laser model and "PS1 laser fpc". I'm not sure which webshop would have this cable, but I would thing replacing the whole laser unit may be cheaper and much easier than to replace this cable.

    Thanks, I will take your advice and replace the disk drive because I went and had a look it is cheaper to get the whole disk drive.
