Your best bed is to see what places like whitedog.co.uk are selling - I doubt they would even try and sell a HDD that will exceed what the xbox can read.

first make sure your xbox is modded.. second.. if you have an older bios then it will limit to 137. but 120gig should be plenty :) if you want to use it for xbox live, you have to be able to lock it. xbox-scene.com has plenty of info on this stuff :) 40gig was plenty for me

You'll get better help if you ask in the xbox-scene forums, honestly. And yes you need to mod your Xbox to put in a larger drive...

hdd limit of xbox with latest modchip and evox is 2Tb (yes 2Tb)
chips are well, cheap as chips - www.cheapmod.com get the duo-x chips ive fitted loads with no probs
although you can switch off chips there are alternative online servers that are FREE so dont bother with live :)

if you have a thomson drive, well first off unlucky m8!!! you will have to burn a evox bot/install disc to dvdr to get your xbox running once chipped. have a look for the slayer evox disc, very simple to use

yes i am mooo. Cept i brought my xbox to school and took it apart and put it back together and now it restarts 3 times and on the last time it blinks red and green. I thought that was only for the mod chip but i read its also when your xbox goes poo poo :(.

If your not fragging (the light thingy going off/on) have you installed the lastest BIOS (M8-x2_4983 BIOS-M8_16 for 1.6 xbox) make sure you use a new CD-RW. burn real slow and put it in the DVD tray. If it doesn't boot up then turn it off and turn on from the eject button. Are you running a operating system with your mod chip such as Xenium Ice OS 2.0/2.01 ?

Hang in there TittleBitties. All is not lost here: Flashing red and green (fragging) means you have a bad installation or your dO wire isn't installed correctly. Make sure its in the right hole. Did you do a solderless install or did you solder. The problem with the solderless adapters is. They come loose. If you did solder make sure you didn't use too much solder so none over flowed onto any track lines (traces) pinheader install is about the best and putting that dO wire in that little frickn' hole I needed a magnifying glass to put mine in. What mod chip do you have.

Slayers 2.6 Auto Installer

If your not familiar with Slayers auto installer it is awesome especially for the novice users. Once you flash your BIOS after you install your mod chip then load up Slayer's and it installs all your programs for you. You do need to read the installation options before installing however. Here is a description from Slayers website: http://slayer.xbox-scene.com/forum/index.php
