Default could you put 2 HDD's if you take out dvd drive?

sponsored links

I've seen tutorials on how to have 3 HDD's connected, but only 1 can be active at once. I know you can only have 2 devices per IDE chain, but is there anything that says the XBOX has to have a dvd drive and a hard drive connected? I know its pretty useless to have an xbox without a dvd drive, but I'm just curious as to if you did put a hard drive in place of the dvd drive would it work? This way you could have 2 x 120 gig drives, and when you want to play a non-backup game not on the hard drive you could make some sort of switch to go between the dvdrom + HDD and HDD + HDD setups.

I'm curious about this because I have an extra 20 gig hard drive, and I've got no room for it in my pc, so instead of just letting it sit there I'm trying to find a use for it. I'll probably end up selling it on ebay, but I'll get next to nothing for a 20 gig drive nowadays. Anyway, just wondering if anyone kows if this would work. I can see why it wouldn't but yet again I could also see why it could, and before I start hacking up my box I thought I would check. Thanks for the advice.

If it works, that would be great. Just imagine 2 120s and just use FTP to transfer files to your Xbox!!

Keen idea!
