There is some great info on these forums, I just have one or two specific questions to ask before I finalize my plans. Q.1 I will be picking up the Action Replay to softmod my Xbox. I understand with krayzie's softmod package it will ask you to backup your eeprom so that you can always salvage or rebuild a harddrive if anything goes wrong. Will this info be saved on the Action Replay card itself? Q.2 I plan to upgrade the HDD to a larger one shortly after softmodding it. I may want to install a game on the existing drive first though, or put some other media on it before picking up a new hard drive. Will there be an easy way to transfer this info over to the new hard drive before installing it? That kind of seems to me like a stupid question but the whole locking/unlocking thing has me wondering how this process will go. Q.2.5 I understand with the ps2 harddrive, that larger capacity ones will cause the games to run slower. Is this the case with the xbox, or could I get a 500GB drive and throw all my games on it without worrying about anything. Thanks for any help you can provide!
