    Yes, but you'd not be able to play DVD backups, rather you'd have to USB HD it. Or WODE. Or Sundriver.

    Gen3SF has a USB HD gaming guide here along with links to HDs to see if compatible or not. Good luck!

    Hardmodding would be next to useless since you can't play discs. Save your money and load from usb
