Which Hard Drive Can I Use?
Posted 28 April 2006 - 12:58 AM
I'm looking at upgrading my xbox to a 300GB HD. When choosing should I be looking at the brand name or specific features of the drive.
I read somewhere here that Western Digital is okay, but I'm not sure if that means any WD drive.

if it is softmodded you need one that locks.
If you have a chip and don't plan on using the oiginal dash, then you don't need to worry.
also be sure to use the correct patch for bios or nkpatcher if the size is over 130gb.

It is a 300gig with 8meg cache.
Like Chorizo1 said, use the F and G
option when doing the softmod.

so if i have a chip and just want to boot xbmc I do not need to lock the drive right?
