HDD how big?
Can someone please tell me how big the hdd is in an xbox and can you change it for one that is used in a pc

8Gigs I believe although the more recent ones actually have 12gig ones formated as 8gigs. I believe it can handle drives upto 120gigs although I guess you need it chiped to install one. I could be wrong though, as I know basically nothing about XBox's.

Anyway, I'm moving this to the XBox forum

8gigs, some are said to have 10 or 20, but they are not usable right out the box I think.

You can upgrade up yo 120gigs, and use every gig if you want.

120 is the max. if you go bigger the xbox will only see 137 gigs i believe. just like a motherboard in a pc. you need the ATA card to go beyond 137 gigs. and you can't use a card in the xbox.

if i'm wrong correct me.

The xbox will only utilize 137gb of a 160 gb HDD, so its better to just buy a 120gb (thats what i have and its plenty of space) You need a modchip to upgrade the HDD. If your Xbox has a seagate HDD its 10 gigs, and you can unlock the other two gigs with EvoX (which also requires a mod chip). If its not a seagate then it only has the standard 8gb. Hope this clears up some cunfusion

And I just want to clear up that there are no 20Gb hard drives. People started thinking that there were because the model number was virtually the same as the 10Gb.
