Xbox 360 HDD replacement

Just a suggestion: Why don't you just put the disk in, that way you don't have to spend $100 on a new Hard Drive?

And is Microsoft that stupid? There's gotta be more of a catch than going to Blockbuster and renting and burning.

You still need the disk to register the game on your hard drive. Burning the game to the system speeds up loading times and will help the disk last longer.

Evil: If you buy this, You can transfer all your saves over to your pc and then over to the new HD

Rent the game...$60 turns into $5.

You need the disk of the game you ripped onto your system, that exact disk not another one, in the system when you try to play the file off your system or it won't allow you to play the game. The exact disk because it records serial numbers.

here is what I did:

Picked up a 20gb used 360 HD for $35

Picked up a new 120 GB HD for $30 (WD1200BEVS)

Hooked up new drive to PC, flashed the firmware

Removed 20GB HD from 360 case, put 120GB drive in case

Hooked it up to the xbox and formatted the drive

result is a 120gb elite HD which retails for $159.99 but it cost me 65 bucks

You don't need the exact disc, just a copy of the game.

My friend installed his Gears Of War on my harddrive and as long as I had MY Gears in the drive it worked.
