How To: Replace an XBox hard drive with a larger one

Replace an XBox hard drive with a larger one

If you still own and use an original XBox console, good for you! You've got a little piece of history right there that most people just tossed or sold to a game store for $10. This video will show you how to replace the paltry 8gb hard drive that the console came with with a big honking 120gb drive. This will allow you to store more data, and since hacking the original XBox is the best reason to keep it around at this point, you should probably make sure that you can do that.
