Does anyone know if this Action Replay will work in soft-modding a xbox?

Also, can anyone recommend a good hard drive to use if I want to replace the original xbox hard drive? A lot of hard drives recommended in guides are no longer sold.

Yes. ActionReplay works. You can either get the whole package (including hardware) or just get the ActionReplay software and try the usb route.

What I did was to make a usb adapter for the xbox and plug in a usb stick. After the xbox recognized it I put the game saves on the drive and modded the xbox. The hardest part was getting the required parts. The original game, the usb stick that works. FYI I used a 1gb coby mp3 player. I repartitioned it as a 16mb fat16 partition and the rest of the drive unpartitioned.

As for the hard drive I have a western digital caviar blue 160gb. Works. I've tried a few drives. Most of the 40gb variety that I tried didn't work. The larger ones did. You can use xboxhdm to "test" a drive before you try to use it as a xbox drive. If it says that it can be locked then you're good to go. If locking is not possible then you have to get a different drive.

I used a 200gig no name drive and worked just fine. I think most new drives are lockable.
