SATA2IDE converter that plugs into the back of the HD

a softmod will require a locking HDD.

is there a quick way to test it?

if you have a chipped box any HDD will work.
Not strictly true.
The SATA drive may not work. You would need the converter you talk of but even then it may not. When swapping drives you need to use IDE/EIDE drives. Even then some are not lockable

I have been trying to get my drive to work (exact same model as yours). It DOES lock, I've been using the ADSAIDE SATA to IDE adapter (which plugs right into the back of the drive). Fits well in the Xbox.
HOWEVER: After creating the drive, it ends up with an error 13 on the screen. The Xbox just won't boot up into my dash with the drive. I can't figure it out.
