I called an “expert” and they said buying a new drive wont work. I would have to buy a whole new mother board as well…

The PS4 Pro does not have a daughter board attached to the optical drive to match up the optical drive model numbers to like the regular PS4. Where do we find what replacement optical drive to buy? Would it be the most recent BDP-025?

I’m currently trying to find a replacement Optical Drive for my Ps4 Pro myself. Apparently, This is really hard to find. Managed to find a used one but the price to me seems a bit high at $123.

Excellent instructions just saved me a lot of dosh. I would recommend using Phillips #00 where #0 is noted however - worked better for me.

Thanks again though!

Forgot to say that I my drive was fine once I fished out the two Switch cartridges my 3 year old had posted in there! Obviously wanted to play Zelda on my PS4 pro - if only.
