Is there a program or process I can use to format all the 10's and 20's I have laying around as PC hard rives? I know they're small but we have like 10 or 15 of them laying around which could make for a good external RAID.

stock xbox drives are 8gb (western digital) or 10gb (seagate) there is no 20gb stock drive

once the drive is unlocked any regualr PC app can format them

if they are not locked you need the xbox they came out of to unlock them (there is no way around this)
