I bought a 360 hitachi drive v32 that was located in hong kong. Ebay is acting up right now so I cant give a link. I finally got it today after 12 days to find that there is no SATA port but only a IDE port... Looks awfully similar to a xbox1 drive.. Im wondering if this is a mistake or whats going on here.. did the v32 drive have IDE and I just didnt know? bah.. dry.gif

I'm going to have to say you got a Xbox 1 DVD Drive. Shoot over some pics.

That definitly is NOT a 360 Drive. I'd submit a paypal item dispute. Get your money back.

Person has pretty good feedback, could have just have been an honest mistake. I sent him a message i'll give him a day or two before I do that. Thanks by the way pop.gif

couldn't help but notice that the drive has a march 2005 manufacture date, do 360 drives even have manufacture dates that old? where the system came on november 2005, i figured the oldest parts would be from may 2k5.

happy.gif You do know the drive in the pictures above ISNT a 360 drive, right? Obviously not laugh.gif

And if you dont get the actual 360 drive, i would also be making a paypal dispute about this. But mostly these are just mistakes.

well, i'm just saying even though looking at it makes it pretty obvious since it doesn't have SATA, the date would go even further in confirming it.

Since it was an accident on there part you should NOT have to pay shipping either way. Demand they pay shipping first.
