- a 350 gb hard drive that can be locked
- a molex y splitter
- a few games to save onto my new hard drive
The thing that messed up my old Xbox may be because I didn't save the softmod to right partition. That or something happened to the E partition during the install. To be blunt, my original hard drive is useless for the Xbox.
During the week after that fiasco, I found out about places to install the latest Xbox dashboard. What's stopping me from installing the dashboard onto my larger hard drive and putting it into my old Xbox? It still plays original Xbox games, despite constantly hitching up (it was a version 1 Xbox, so it's been around since 2001), so I don't know why just putting another HD in the system would change anything.
