    Hi,

    My ps2 laser lens is old and now its often skipping as well as having looooooooonnnnggggg load times.

    Instead of buying a new lens and then having the same problem again in a while, I chose to buy a Hard Drive. The question is : Which one ? My PS2 is modchipped with a DMS4 with ToxicOs 0.41... so there is no problems for the games to work.

    Could you please help me with those matters ?

    1 - Would you choose an internal HD or an external one (working through USB). What are the limitations of the PS2 in matter of brand/size/type ?

    2 - For internal HD, Which hard disk to buy (brand, size, type)and do I absolutely need a network adapter to make it works ? Where to buy it ?

    3 - For external HD, does the new external drive available will work with the PS2. If yes, is it necessary to have one with his own power supply.

    Thx to anyone taking his precious time to answer me.

    The Playstation 2 (PS2) does not come with a hard drive, relying instead on memory cards to store game data and other information. You can add a standard computer hard drive to a PS2 Slim which, like the first generation PS2, has a dedicated space provided for inserting a hard drive. You will need a Sony network adapter from a Playstation supply store and a CD hard drive installation disc.
