I Put a Disc Drive Into a PS5 DIGITAL – But Did It Work?! When I compared the motherboards of the PS5 disc version and the PS5 disc-less version the only differences I found were missing connectors for where the disc drive would connect. So in this video I’m taking those connectors off a donor PS5 motherboard and installing them on the motherboard of the PS5 all digital. Will it work or do I need to make more modifications?

UPDATE: As some of you have noticed, in this video I put the disc into the disc drive UPSIDE DOWN! Rookie mistake, lol! I just went back and tried it again with the disc inserted correctly and it did SPIN UP! But unfortunately, it still didn’t show up on the screen. It seems that the firmware still won’t let it actually play the disc. Thanks to those who caught my mistake!

    @tronicsfix I just caught this video. Have you tried reinstalling the firmware after adding the drive? It probably needs the drivers installed from the firmware which gets skipped over of no drive is detected

    So does this mean i can just remove the disc drive and then put a digital casing on my disc edition? Bc I wanted a digital but those are more rare and I don’t have any discs anyway
