Hi! Staples has a great price (69 bucks, no rebate) on this Maxtor 160 gig drive. I have been looking to replace my 30 gig drive, and this looks like a good bet (I won't see the space over 137 on my softmod, right? no big deal).

Anyways, will this drive work in my xbox? I know how to build a drive using xboxhdm. But, I can't find any info on the drive's lockability. Also, it comes with an SATA card, but seems to be an IDE drive. Here is the drive: http://www.staples.c...8084&PageType=1

thanks for the info!!!!

Why do you say "it seems to be an IDE drive"? Everything I see on that page makes me believe it's an SATA drive (which is not compatible with Xbox).

there was some talk at fatwallet that this drive might in fact by an IDE drive with a SATA card (not sure what that would accomplish...). I guess that isnt the case.

That being said, are there any similar deals for a 120/160 gig drive for under 75 without any rebates?

thanks!

the ad is a little confusing, showing an IDE connector on the card along with ide speed ratings, but specifies a SATA interface.

I would jump on pricewatch.com and see what they got.
