I tried doing a search but to no avail. Here's my situation:

My friend gave me his 360, had RROD and fixed it, but he kept the hard drive from it and put it with his new acarde 360. I bought a case off of http://www.niktronixonline.com and a harddrive.

So my question is, after I use hddhackr and put the new harddrive in the Xbox to format, when it asks for the serial number, will it show up as two of the same harddrives on XBL or what? If so do I have to enter a different serial.

Please help. Thanks in advanced!

From the screen shot of HDDSS it looks like you are putting the firmware from a Hitachi Travelstar 5K500.B (HTS545025B9A300) 250Gb hard drive into a Western Digital Scorpio. It feels risky to me doing that, or is it only part of the drives firmware that is being overwritten? Why not just buy a genuine 5K500.B and use HDDSS and put the new firmware into it instead? Once the 5K500.B had the new firmware any utilities that can be used on the Western Digital Scorpio would then work with the 5K500.B as they would appear to the XBox 360 as being identical? uhh.gif

so whats the latest on this, what about the 250Gb drives?

my original launch generation console just bit it, going to replace with a new Jasper arcade, but still have this old 20Gb hard drive and would like to replace it with at least a 60Gb drive, figured i would come back to xbox-scene to follow this tutorial, but i find there appears to be a lot of unresolved issues and no support for the latest drives

also no insight on how safe it is to use one of these drives on Live....
