No you can't do that. I'm sure you'll get other replies with technical answers though.

Firewire is not going to work. You need IDE hd's. I use the Romtec Trios HD selector, and the thing works great. I've got 3 seperate 120gig drives connected to my xbox. Check it out at Romtec.com.

it cant be the trio 2 its has to be the original trio, reason being the trio 2 has to be installed to to a pc using a pc card which xbox does not have, and the original trio is basically hook up all your hard drives and bingo you got a sexbox hahahah

They recommend a 250Watt power supply for the Trios to run the drives. Is this going to hurt the xbox powering 3 drives?
Do you have a picture of how you have yours setup?
