Further to post of Pre-owned XBOX360 20GB HD for £9.95, I went to my local Blockbuster (Tamworth) last night to pick one up, which I did for £8.96 as I had a 10% off voucher, but also noticed they had the 60GB for £14.95 and the 120GB for £19.95. I only needed the 20GB for game saves so I was happy to have that. They had about 4 of each left, I assume it's nationwide.
Hope it helps someone.
Note, instore only, link just takes you to the Blockbuster website.

I got a 120gb last night to butcher for my 4gb slim, excellent value. You only get 106gb of usable memory though, I'm surprised that 14gb gets used up for system files etc.

Hot deal, I just put my 120GB into the slim so I need another for my old 360.

HDD manufacturers use 1KB = 1000 bytes, most operating systems (including the one on the 360) use 1KB = 1024 bytes so the actual size of the drive is only 111GB.

How are you securing the drive inside the slim? I used electrical tape from both sides of the drive and it seems to be pretty secure (it doesn't wobble at all) but I'm interested to see if people are doing something better :p.

Bargain if you can find one. Get a cheap enclosure for the slim and swap it over.

Will these drives fit on the slim?

If you either mount them in a new enclosure, or simply remove them from the plastic enclosure they are in.

OP, you could metion or even link to the original post here:

and give users 'MRC' and 'Chippa' a mention

I haven't done it yet but I will either get a cheap case from HK (although I'm worried if cooling my become an issue?) or just using something similar to you like tape.

The drives have the same interface as the slim (once you get them out of the old style casing) so it will slot in ok but the drive is physically smaller than the opening so it will be unsupported and there is a small chance that it may move or become dislodged, particularly if you move your console around. You can get copied hard drive cases that are made to house the drive and fit in the slot exactly and thus support the hard drive.

Thinking of getting a 120gb one. Is there anyway of transferring all my games/saves/DLC from my current 20GB to the new 120GB. Also I am planning on getting a new slim in the new year. Will I be able to remove the HDD from the case plug it in and see all the content or will I need to somehow format the HDD and transfer all the data over again?

Cheers, Shane

I don't know about the pre-owned ones but the 120GB drives usually come with a data transfer cable which you can use to transfer the data from the 20GB to the 120GB. If it doesn't come with the drive you can pick one up from eBay for about £3.

For the slim you can just remove it from the case (with a torx screwdriver) drop it into the slim and you have access to all your data, no formatting necessary.

With the latest dashboard upgrades it is possible to transfer to a USB pen drive then transfer it back once you have replaced the hard drive. I am thinking about doing this myself. Prior to this there was a 'special' cable that was used to transfer from Xbox to PC (I believe) which by all accounts was a ball-ache. And the cable cost about £30.

Ditto. Just clips together without any screws and your old hard drive is safely tucked away inside 8)

If you're referring to the official Microsoft "data migration kit" I found it easy to do and profitable. Got it free from Microsoft after filling in a request form. After using it sold it on ebay for about £14. That was almost 2 years ago - not sure if Microsoft still give them away for free, but the ebay price has dropped.
Only problem was the delay, waiting for the kit to be delivered to me. Couldn't order it until I had the new HDD, as I needed the serial number from it - so I had the new drive sat on a shelf for a few days.

As you say, though, most things on a HDD can be transferred using a USB flash drive these days.

Got the last 120gb one from my local store and the cheap enclosure from Deal Extreme (£6.39 delivered) If you can pickup up one of the cheap slim offers its a nice little deal. 100gb is plenty I have 250gb in mine for over a year and only used around 70gb and its full of game transfers etc I dont need anymore....

Got a 120gb for £19.95. Thanks a lot. Steal

EDIT: jokes on me. It's only a 20 gb one!!! FML. Back tomorrow then.

EDIT: managed to get a swap at another store (without much questioning). Excellent CS.

Maybe some shops wipe them but others dont? I put mine in my old pro to format it but it had already been done. Just got it out of its shell ready to go in the slim, was made in May 08 so over 2yrs old.
