I have two drives that are already soft modded. One is a Seagate that I formatted to access the whole 10gb and the other is a western digital. I would like to swap them out because I modded the case on one of them. I remember you saying something about having to stay with the same motherboard or something Wes. Can I just swap the HDs out or is there more involved? There is nothing but some old roms of each, but I can erase them if needed.

If its not the hdd that came in the xbox you can chimp it to make it work, but no you cant just pop in a diff hdd since it wont have the eeprom of your xbox on it.

I had burned copies of my c: and e: drives along with a copy of my eeprom. i got the drive formatted and all the data on it, then went to lock it and it said that it couldnt find the password. so i redid it and pressed enter when it said enter password. now i get an error code 9 on the xbox when i try to boot it up, and i cant unlock the drive.

no way to fix this drive? Its the one i was hoping on using. Im gonna stop by the local computer store today and see if i can find anything cheap to play with. i think it was fried before i started to mess with it. It used to be in my computer and i replaced all the drives with new ones a couple of years ago.

on a side note the pc when trying to boot up says that there is a primary or slave master drive error depending on the jumper. argh i thought i was doin good on this Rolling Eyes
