Hi everyone, ive been doing alot of reading and u guys really seem to know your stuff. i apologise in advance for this being long. So i have a few questions im not really sure of. First ill tell you my situation. I dont have an xbox but i want to buy one and put in a larger hard drive, and a mod chip. All i want it to do is store games, movies, and music on there so i can play it later. What things do i need to do this? im guessing just an xbox, larger hard drive and a mod chip... is that all? I dont really know anything about flashing the card or bios or even what that is. I only want to attempt it myself because i would save AU$125 and the guy who would install it seems like he doesnt know what hes doing anyway. so i thought i may as well have a go and save my money. What do u think? is it really that hard for someone who only knows how to solder and knows bugga all bout computers, i can format em, thats bout it. I was going to get a Western Digital 200GB 7200rpm ATA100 Hard Drive with 8MB Cache, and a Xecuter 3 Modchip, and put it in the new xbox, but ive heard a few different things. First 200gb and the 7200rpm overheats, there is little difference between 2mb and 8mb cache, and the version 1.6 xbox is hard to mod and stuffs up when u do. I just dont wanna throw my money away. Also when i do this, can i just plug it into the computer and download stuff from the pc to the xbox, like mp3's and movies etc? really sorry its long, im just confused. I appreciate ur help as reading the faq's seems to be gettin me nowhere. If u can tell me thats great, or point me in the right direction, thats good to. Thanks.
