Yes its possible. You can do it using Evox as long as you have the seagate drive. All you do is temporarly replace or edit the evox.ini file and it will give you the option to format F partition. I think you can get a copy of the edited evox.ini off from the usual places or just do a search on it and I'm sure you'll find what you need.

**edit**

I think this is what you need to add to the evox.ini file. Been a long time since I did this so I'm not 100% on it

Yeah sadly you've got the 8Gb Western Digital drive in your box which is 2Gb smaller than the Seagate. If you're tight for cash but want a bigger hd then go on eBay. What I do is look for hds in the search then select it to show me all items within a 25mile radius. Usually I'll find a load used 40Gb+ drives for hardly any money and since they're so close to my house I just pick em up and save on postage biggrin.gif .

well dat sounds good. imma probably go to newegg, seeing how i trust it more. but yea. ok so i got the xboxhdm. iz it easy to use, and for that matter, as long as you have the xbox harddrive backed up, iz it foolproof from there (not including choosing the wrong drive, and i have the eeprom & hdkey n stuff)???
