Ok, so let me clarify:
I have two PS3's as of this moment, one for my brother and one for myself.
The one that I have is the one missing the power cable for the optical drive.
Now how hard is it to replace such a wire, without resorting to ebay?
Any handyman tips on how I'd go about creating one from scratch, or a breakdown of the different voltages on each pin? Like which one is the ground etc.
