So I've read every freaking tutorial I could possibly find. Booting into DOS, copying firmware, etc... would not be beyond me, however, I don't have a Western Digital drive.
My 20GB HDD (supposedly a genuine MS HDD) is a Samsung. Every tutorial I've read says I need to have one of a select few WD HDDs.
So, I just gave in and ordered a non-MS HDD upgrade off Ebay (120GB). Lo and behold, it doesn't work. I crack the case open and it's a Hitachi 120GB. Did I get screwed? I'm thinking not, as my original 20GB was a Samsung.
So I'm left with a very simple question. How in the world do I get a non-WD drive to work in my Xbox? Obviously, some people have (otherwise there wouldn't be Samsung and Hitachi 360 HDDs floating around).
