After searching the internet for a few days and not finding the right drive for my ps3 i gave up and just sent my PS3 to one of the repair shops and paid $120 to have it fixed, shipping included.

There were a couple of times I left the thing running for long periods of time. Not being able to charge the controllers unless the unit is on is a huge design flaw imo. On more that one occasion I would turn it on to charge the controller, forget about it, then realize it's still on 8-12 hours later. I'm sure that had a lot to do with it dieing, but I was still a little pissed it broke one month out of warranty.

I think you can charge the controllers using a computer, right ?
