PSOne (Smaller) Mod question: Paralell Port
for reasons of insanity or something like that i have a desperate need/desire to install a Paralell port into my mini PSOne SCPH-101 system
I have the kit already, and i have a picture of connection points, but the socket and chip will not fit right where it's supposed to...
i'm looking for *ANYONE* who has any idea how someone could go about making this work. The kit's socket would fit, but then you couldn't reassemble the PSOne...i'm thinking what i need to do is either
A) find a good spot for the thing and tape it down, using wires to connect the socket to the chip
B) build an exterior "case" and place the socket in there, attaching that to the outside of the PSOne
C) attempt to reverse engineer this thing and make something that would actually work
looking at the board/socket kit, it looks as if a lot of my problems could be solved by inverting the way the whole thing goes, but leave the socket the way it was....the problems might also be solved by carefully soldering a wire to each of the 68 pins of the ribbon cable....not my idea of fun
It is important for me to have the port back as i am using it for something in particular...anyone who can provide any info or tips or anything, please respond.
