Switching Laser Drives - Cases are different

0 replies 16 views Edited Mar 9, 2012

My laser died in my 80GB PS3. I bought a new one on ebay to swap them out. My model number is CECHL01. I checked the model number before buying and I was certain the one I was buying was the exact same. I took the console apart tonight, and was about to swtich the motherboard on the BR drive and noticed that the openings on the bottom of the drive were different. After several google searches and looking on ebay, i can't find a drive that looks like mine. Any ideas as to whether I bought the wrong drive or not? If so, what do I need?

The sellers auction said:

  • SONY PlayStation PS3 160GB any console
  • SONY PlayStation PS3 80GB CECHLXX,CECHKXX sereis console

The bottom of my blu-ray drive.
