    Hey i have a ps3 slim, and my disk drive broke some months ago so i thought i should take a look at it.
    I tried everything, but then i just thought i could remove the whole drive and play games from the Ps Store, but they dont work because my drive is broken.
    Any Help?

    Why don't you attempt completely replacing the drive? I'm not sure of the difficulty, but it would probably cost less than buying a new PS3.
