You cannot simply just swap the drives. There are different drive types on the PS3 ie drive firmwares/lasers. It would be easier and cheaper to swap the laser in the drive itself. There are 2 laser types in the ps3. Expect to pay around £40 for the laser, or around £80-£100 (inc laser) for someone to do it for you.

These are seriously hard to come by and are expensive when they do appear. I have seen them fetch £100+ on Ebay dependant upon model (the older 20/60/40/80GB PS3's have a single laser drive which is far more expensive to replace and far more volitile).

There is a pcb board fastened to the outer casing which would need to be removed and transferred to the replacement drive. This is a fairly straight forward procedure though and can be done with a screw driver.
