XBOX is up and running, is there any issues I should be aware of when locking my HDD for the first time.
Have a Xecuter V2.2 Lite
New Maxtor HDD
XBOX (3/03)

Would like to play on-line and in disabled mode.

Thanks in advance!

^that's the old school way of locking a HDD

Just use ConfigMagic, it'll lock it in seconds while it's in your xbox

yeah dont bother with that tutorial unless you wanna pull your hair out doing it, just d/l Config Magic as suggested (from the usual places) put it on your xbox and then run it...select "lock harddrive" and if your harddrive is lockable it will lock. Maybe give this a look if you wanna be sure ahead of time if your hd model is lockable.
