Introduction
This will guide you through the process of replacing your PlayStation's optical drive.I found my playstation 1 in the attic. The cd drive in the system did absolutely nothing. I want to repair the drive, and to be able to use my hard drive [IDE or SATA (or both) is fine] to play roms. Is it possible to use my external hard drive to play roms? I know how to repair/replace the cd drive, but I want to know if the hdd idea is possible.
