    You can buy spares seperately, but when you attempt to get into the case you will blow the warranty. But having said that, for $75 bucks its a steal, come to mention it a replacement drive may cost you more :p

    Naturally, make sure he confirms the drive is working before laying down your cash.
    Had my xbox 2 years and haven't had a single problem with it...

    ...Except KOTOR, silly game crashed for the end cutscene :p

    You can play 'online' without xbox live I thing there is two programs xconnect and kai kai (I think thats what its called) not sure if you need the xbox modded..do a google search, there is a lot of info on it.

    I'm asuming you only got your xbox chipped.

    I would seriously suggest getting the xbox 'slayer' cd (from the usual places!) this includes a ftp client.

    I then just use flash fxp to connect to my xbox...to transfer music/games/films etc.

    It also comes with xlink kai so you can play games over the internet, xbox media center etc...it then completely opens up what you can do with your xbox.
