Any Ideas What this console is? –
I have a NTSC SCPH-50006 console I'd love to soft-mod it but I'm in the UK and I've done my normal UK console But would love to do this one two but can't boot any disc's on it to put the patcher onto the memory card
It's an Asian (HK iirc) v9/10.
Since that console is from a different region than the one you normally use, you can not prepare an FMCB softmod on your normal console and have it work on the asian one.

I'm not entirely sure, but I believe that an asian PS2 should use "BIDATA-SYSTEM" as the name of the exploit folder (same as for japanese region).
But if you try this with the same FMCB installer package you used for installing on your old PS2, remember that any external DVDELF.BIN in the INJECT folder (if you used such a file) will not remain valid for the asian region. For UK the proper DVDPLx file is DVDPLE, but for china I think you should use DVDPLA (both renamed to DVDELF.BIN of course).
