Wanted Xbox hdd

i have just soft modded my xbox, well, the kids xbox, and i want to install a larger hdd in it. i am totally fed up wasting money on games for the discs to be scratched beyond use.
sooooo....i need a larger hdd. and if anyone has tips on how to install it, please throw em at me. I have never tried FTP, and after much googling i cant find help for doing it through vista. So the least headache inducing method the better :)

:thumbsup: I mate, there a few good sites out there that tell you how to install a larger HDD, i think a google search will help there :thumbsup:

for ftp'ing stuff to your xbox you will need a program called flashfxp. Google that and you can download the program for free. I used this site and learnt how to ftp stuff over to the xbox:

nice link, thanks. i have just ordered a crossover cable for £2 from ebay, so i will give it a bash.
Do you have vista?
banned#4
i think ethernet cable is the easiet to use...you may want to try that if you have a spare one lying around.

I have windows xp, but it still should work with vista.

well, thats what worries me. vista. 'should' but i cant find evidence of it 'working'
banned#6
only thing I can suggest is that you download it and give it a whirl.

I have heard that some people have had probs with vista (bloomin M$!)

If it works, then great, if not I'l keep a look out for some tutorials if you like. Or some of the guys here maybe able to help ;-)

Anyway what size HDD you after 80 120 or 160?
#13
well, it didnt go off topic as i am also after tips on fitting the thing lol.

i want at least 120GB. and obviously it must be lockable.
#14

well, i haven't found any info stating that, i will check that now though. But, to be honest, 120GB will prob be more than enough for now.

They do, you need to format G: drive using UnleashX.

For the best guides on upgrading the hard drive AND links to all the software look here : AfterDawn.

To make a new drive you will need to download the following before you start.

xboxhdm
liveinfo
MS dash 5960

(and the softmod kit obviously)

and a compatible drive from this list : Click

Then follow this guide : Click:thumbsup:
