The drive must be unlocked before it can be accessed in another xbox.

i think thats the only way to do it unless you stick a modchip in teh xbox.

id be going down teh modchip path myself, because they are very handy not just for this; its a lot easier; and you also dont have the risk of blowing up both hard drives....
