I am having trouble finding a working IDE drive, and most by now are reaching their end of life and should be dying. I am unsure how feasible going IDE is, as only used stuff on eBay that often is DOA is feasible. Also I am open to other suggestions/methods. I have both a fat PS2 (with network connector) and Slim PS2, I tried the network streaming thing but I couldn't get it to work, I think it's just modern Windows having really strict sharing permissions. But it has come to my knowledge that using a NAS may be possible, thus avoiding Windows as a problematic middleman. I have a DIR-655 router if that helps. Thank You.
