Till yesterday, my xbox was a standard store bought (altho secondhand) box with no upgraded HDD and the software exploit so it had evox and a bunch of apps (XBMC being my most used.) Nice enough setup for me.
A friend then offered his x3 upgraded hdd (40gb he believed) box for sale, so I thought.. I could keep that xbox, then sell on mine for a slight loss. My friend seems up for the deal because she knows I can get her games, tv shows etc...
But here's the problem. Brought the new xbox back.. sodding Philips drive in it. Only one brand of my DVDRs tried so far works, so all my games I might's well give away and tons of my media discs will have to be streamed from the PC DVDROM.
So I have two choices...
1. Sell on the xbox to my friend, give her all my games and just start afresh and be really careful about which blanks I buy from now on.
2. Switch the drives and be honest (I don't wanna missell the xbox, I said she could have my xbox, not my xbox with different parts) saying it'll only play certain media. But as I'll be the main person giving them stuff, it shouldn't be too bad. The drive in my current xbox is a Thomson.. not all my old games were even burnt that well so aren't perfect anyway.
3. Keep the drives the way they are, then buy a Thomson or Samsung off ebay and switch em.
I'm presuming its a simple enough operation, nothing more needed than a screw driver ?
What would you do in my position?
(Damn the new XBOX is loud! must be the HDD inside it.. jeez! Now to find stuff I couldn't do with the old box I can with the new.. play Jade Empire DVD9 is pretty much all I've thought of so far hehe)
oops, I thought I was in the Gen Hardware forum.. if someone doesn't mind moving this that'd be appreciated.
