Which 1-2 Tb Sata Drive?
Posted 01 July 2012 - 06:24 AM
I've tried perusing through this site http://xboxdrives.x-pec.com/?p=list to find out which hard drive I should purchase, but I can't seem to find anything current that I can order from newegg. I am looking for 1-2 TB drive that will work with a softmodded xbox. I will used Xboxhdm 1.9 to make a bootable iso, therefore the drive needs to be lockable. I have ordered a IDE to SATA adapter from deals extreme. So would anyone please be kind enough to point me to a drive that will work from newegg? Thank you in advanced!

The reason for this is that hard drives change without notice, either by software (firmware), or by slight hardware updates. This means that someone here could say "This exact make/model works. Go buy this one", and then due to a slight change at the the factory (firmware update, for example), said model may not work for you. This is also the reason why there is no reliable "compatibility" list anywhere on the net.

I'd get a nice batch of them that worked great, then I'd get others which caused the console to boot slowly or not at all. The exact same converter worked great on one hdd & not at all on a different hdd. It was a pain in the ass to get the right combination of performance & compatibility.
I dealt with chipped consoles so I never bothered to lock or unlock any of those SATA drives.
That's where you'll probably have the toughest time as SATA hard drives came out at the end of the xbox1 life cycle so not too many people bothered to document which ones worked great & which didn't. Good luck
