    when you use xboxhdm it builds the drive to an original state. Once installed just delete the save games you would have on the new drive and your in business. You wouldn't be able to enable g drive but you would have a larger hd.

    A lot of the 'hardcore' live players sport bigger drives, they use the softmod, then remove the mod once the bigger drive is formatted and locked to it; then M$ can't tell. It's great if you have one of those obscenely large collections of games (I used to for a while), or if you want to store a lot of music on it, either for regular listening seperately or for in-game soundtracks.

    But yes, you can softmod, install a bigger hard drive, then unmod. Live can't detect it.

    Yeah.... You probably won't find one that's IDE.... And if you did, the seek times would be absolutely horrendous, trust me on that.
