Pretty much any computer HD will work. Although I have seen lots of reports about Seagates crashing. With that kind of a deal it might be worth at least trying out though.

You have to make sure the harddrives lockable if you want to use live.

I dont think i will lock it because i dont have the money now to pay for live.
I had another question can i just take the old 8gig hard drive out and put the new one in and thats it. Or do i need to put some type of xbox driver. To some it up is it hard to do or do i just swap. A friend gave me the Slayers 2.1 is that all i need. That hard drive is a good deal hope someone snags it up besides me.

best program i've found, hands down, is called NewHDEvoX1.2. it's a completely stripped down evox that when you put it in, has two options: setup new hard drive and reboot. all ya need! it'll automatically set up how much you need on each drive then all the rest goes to F: automatically.
