i was wondering if anyone knew what is the best hard drive to upgrade to ( anything over 120GB). like what brand has the best chance of working. and will all new hard drive fit in the HDD caddy inside the xbox?

i was also wonder what the best and easiest tool for upgrading my hardrive would be. i was thinking about ''chimp'' cause it seems easiest. or is xboxhdm better? help would be awesome!

I would say don't use XBHDM. I almost killed my computer. Chimp is better and easier. What version xbox do you have?

If you plan to upgrade a hard drive without a chip you should consider a tsop flash on your box, then you can use whatever hard drive you want. Might be a little intimidating but its worth it.
