    Hello all,

    A few days ago I found a PS3 in the trash at school. I brought it home and it works fine expect for the lack of blu-ray drive.

    it is a 40gb CECHGxx model, and luckily it included the daughterboard for the disk drive. It also had some other random disc drive fragments laying around.

    The problem is that the daughterboard that I have is the BMD-001 (1-871-575-34) model, and as far as I can tell the CECHG only came with BMD-002 and BMD-003 boards.

    Is there any way that the PS3 I have actually came with the BMD-001 board, or should I assume that the original board is gone somewhere?

    I was planning to buy a KEM-400AAA drive from ebay to make the system complete, but I won't bother if it's the wrong board.
