I just opted to put a 640g 2.5" I had laying around in my HD chassis, I'll keep the games we plan on playing frequently on the drive, and any DLC I come across as well. I suspect that if you take the metal shell inside of the HD chassis out, you could probably retrofit it to hold one of the 13mm 750g or 1tb 2.5's that have just been released in it... I'm just wondering how many of the people using large 3.5" sata drives (1.5tb+) actually PLAY the games they have loaded on them
i too put a 640gb 2.5 in the hdd shell, only after buying the 2TB drive and failing when I tried to solder the cable directly to the board. The 360 would reboot when i attached the drive, just like it would any other hdd, but i would get an e64 error. probably interference. now that i got the 2TB working with the adapter, im busy transferring everything from the 640 to the 2TB. A real PITA, as I've been copying data from the 640 via ftp back to my laptop, and then back to the 2TB, in 50gb chunks as that's all the free space i have! Im now returning the 640.. or perhaps ill list it in the B/S/T already placed in a 360 hdd shell for some other jtagger to use.
Your right though, I very rarely play games. I have more fun collecting them, and just messing around with the system in general. Kinda weird like that, but I know im not alone
I saw that link as well, basically how i got the idea to do what i did. I probably should of mentioned that:Thanks to jgsieve
for his thread on "hdd shell converted to esata adapter
" which gave me the idea for this "mod".This post has been edited by OneStepAhead608: Mar 3 2010, 05:33 AM
