OK, to start off, I'd just like to say I'm a total newb, and also computer incompetent. That being said, I have a few questions about Xbox mods. [bold]THE SITUATION[/bold] I recently purchased a Limited Edition Halo Xbox, which I believe to be a version 1.2 (correct?). I am now planning on buying an upgrade hard drive (250GB's, or maybe 200GB's) and the new Xecuter 3 modchip (for backup purposes). I know almost nothing about the way they work, and I need that info so I can tell which programs to download (or whatever it is that's needed). Basically, my only need for the chip and HDD would be to make backups for my games, and that's about it. [bold]QUESTIONS[/bold] -Does the X3 come with the needed programs for loading my games onto the hard drive? -Will it also come with whatever I'll need to unlock my HDD? -What kind of hard drive should I look into buying? (I've read that Western Digital and Seagate are good) -And last, are there any other factors I should be looking into? Well, thanks to any1 who tries to help, and sorry to those who have wasted their time here.
