I have SCPH39004 FAT PS2, which I would like to use with an external hard drive to make the laser lens live longer. There are so many tutorials on the net (due to the differences between each console version), I'm really confused about what to do. The console is un-touched, original, non-modded and I would prefer to use a softmod or something like that runs without messing with the hardware or opening the console (as the lady seems pretty complex). I know the games run slower (I've already had a slim PS2, hard modded, with external hard drive), but it's not a big problem... I just don't want to touch this new PS2 internally. Any suggestion ? extra questions: I know about FMCB memory card, is it convenient to buy one on eshops (like ebay or amazon, just a few examples)? Does it work like I just need to boot the console with it and then it does all the rest ? Is there a way to boot the HD loader (of any sort) through a CD or DVD ? Can the hard drive be internal ? or should it be external/plugged with the USB ? Thank you in advance for any response.
