HDD installation question with slimline
I recently got a PS2 slimline and I'm not quite sure what version it is. The model number is 70004, I've checked online guides and they seem to list this model under v12 as well as v13, so which is it ?
Also, I want to install a HDD, so should I use the IDE cable to motherboard soldering technique or can I use a normal USB PC harddrive ?
I've quickly ran over both methods, I understand the soldering technique and might be able to do it properly. But I don't understand what is needed to get the USB drive working. Does it have the same compatability as a normal IDE harddrive with respect to games ?
