can you use a hard drive other that a certified Xbox360 hard drive for the 360? Answered

i personally was wondering, since i have many spares, but no money for a 360 HDD if somehow i could maybe mod a regular pc HDD to use on my 360???


It's mostly a matter of fooling the 360 into thinking that the replacement drive is really an official drive.  A quick Google search turned this up, search perimeters were upgrade your 360 hard drive.  This is assuming you want to replace the main drive it uses for game saves, etc.  If you just want to put some music or movies on a drive, then any USB hard drive will work.

This one doesn't look nice, but might be worth a read:

I believe they use standard drives, so a like-for-like should work.
