Possible to use HDD without use of DVD drive?
Ok, I've got a working v4. PS2, but the DVD drive won't boot [or even spin the disk of] any media. It's modded with a Messiah V2 I think, quite an old chip, but it boots backups fine. Now, is there any way I can install an IDE HDD into my PS2 without the use of the DVD drive in any way, so I can back up my games to the HDD via my PC so that I don't need to get a new DVD drive.
If so, could someone please give me a quick guide on how to do it? If not, could someone explain what I would need to get this working?
If anyone has any ideas as to why my PS2 won't even spin anything in the drive, that would be great too!
