    let me get this straight, you want to somehow Mcgyver an external DVD rom up to your PS2 so that you can play MGS3?

    I have a couple options for you

    1) Replace the laser - It is much cheaper than an external drive and ANY mods you would need to do to even make it work

    2) Get a HDD and a chip - ALthough this would be more than replacing the laser it would STILL be cheaper than getting an external drive to work

    3) By a new PStwo - Although this is VERY extreme it would STILL be cheaper and esier than getting an external CD/DVD rom to work with your PS2.

    Get the drift?

    what adjustment can you not get back? The new laser will come pre-adjusted, plus since it is new it wont be such a big deal with getting it perfect. It will read no matter how out of lign you have it.

    Its just worn out lasers that need to be adjusted and fine tuned.

    no the laser is fine. the rods the lazer is mounted on is out of adjustment so a new lazer will do nothing unless i buy a new complete drive mechanism. you know what i mean??/
