    www.system-mods.com sells pre formatted HDD for your xbox. And no you cannont go out and buy a normal HDD and just switch them, you need to format them a certain way.However, if you just got a HDD preformatted from that site, all you do is plug it in and your set.

    you can go out and buy any hd you wish...just pop it in and use slayer's to format the hd.

    get a hold of a autoinstaller and you can use what ever hd you want to.



    oh yeah, this is a whole lot cheaper than wasting your money online for a hd from a mod shop...(pay for the drive, and slayer's is free)

    Most of the IDE or ATA or UDMA HDD are compatible with xbox. You don't need to format it before installing it to xbox. as a matter of fact, it is kind of difficult to format it to xbox format outside of an xbox. It's much better format it after install. Using Slayer's AutoInstaller will format and install everything you need to use the new HDD in your xbox.
