    is there anyway I can do that ?? I own a fat ps2 and I haven't been using it for a very long time I decided to use it again this days but the disk drive is completely damaged , the lens isn't reading the disks at all and no place in my country to fix that and I can't even find a spare parts , so is there anyway to mod it with just a thumb drive and a memory card ??

    sadly i think even the Memory Card method would require you to at least boot an original PSX game once :S

    my dad works for nintendo.
    from what i know and understand
    you can install free mc boot using another ps2 (it is installed on a memory card) ... and launch it on your ps2
    you can also put an HDD wich requires an ethernet adapter, i am not really sure, but for this method i think you don't require anything else...

    If you cant find somebody to mod your memory card with their softmodded ps2 you can install FHDB on a hard drive if you have a network adapter. You'll just need a way to hook up an IDE hard drive to your computer via usb.
