    Alright, the situation is this.

    I currently have a softmodded xbox upgraded with a 160gb hdd.

    I thought that 160gb would be plenty, but I have managed to fill it up with my games.

    Bassically, I want to know if there is an easier way to upgrade to my 400gb drive than re-burning all my games to the new drive.

    I was thinking along the lines of hooking both drives up to my computer and using a program to duplicat the drive.

    Or is it maybe possible to set up my new drive in a friends xbox and then change the hdd key to match my xbox without losing all my data.

    There is probably an obvious answer to this question/these scenarios, that im overlooking, but im just hoping that the obvious answer isnt no.

    Thanx in advance for any help.


    a thought flashed through my head that if its possible to hotswap to a computer to unlock and then back to relock, would i maybe be able to unlock my hdd with (xbox B) e, hotswap to (xbox A) to get it to lock with (xbox A)'s hdd key.

    i would say you can because with xboxhdm 1.9 there is a option to clone an existing xboxHD, so there you go, wouldn't hurt to try.

    i believe you can probably duplicate what you have on the 160GB to the 400 GB with norton ghost.....

    But XboxHDM will work without a doubt....
