You need your drive key
You Also need your DVD drive key
to be inserted into the micro SD card of the 3k3y The Drive Key needs to be extracted from the Console at this stage. the only way to get these keys is if you are running CFW, then install and the run a PGK File From the PS3 console called eEID_RKDumper.pkg
this will extract your unique DVD drive key If you are running 3.56 or higher you need to downgrade here........
Whats this DVD drive key stuff
Every PS3 console has unique serial number, CPU and disc drive keys (These Numbers need to match), the DVD drive controller board is married to the PS3 main board, so swapping a complete drive with another console just wont work the disc drive needs to match the console with the correct keys.
1- Your Console needs to be FAT for 3k3y to work
2- Your console needs to be a phat model CECHC02,CECHG02, CECHK02, CECHH02 CECHJ02
3- your console needs to be running CFW or Software Version 3.55 or lower for key extraction, if higher than 3.55 downgrading the software is an option more here......
4- your DVD drive cable needs to look like this below

Take Note Before Calling Us
Slim Model PS3 is not compatible at this stage
Currently firmware 3.55 is required for extracting the PS3 drive key. Once the key has been extracted the PS3 can be updated to any official or custom firmware. The 3k3y team are working on hardware methods for extracting keys from PS3's already on 4.x firmware
Check your current firmware here....
If your Firmware is above 3.55 there is a method of downgrading to version 3.55, however not all consoles are compatible with this method Check here for downgrading
