i've used WD, Samsung, IBM , Maxtor ,Seagate.....pretty much any will work it will run only at 5400rpm a higher buffer is always good..........a note that IBM when formating must be set to Master and WD to cable select......

Is there a limit on size and rpm (sorry I'm really new to xbox and am still reading through everything)?

I ask because I have a spare 200GB 72000RPM Maxtor (thanks to an error by watford electronics) and a guy I work with says he can fit it into my Xbox

I dont think it will support that high(gigs I mean). Use that for your PC and put something else in the XBox.

Doh - the reason I have two is that Watford Electronics made a mistake and sent me two (though charged me for one)

Just sell it and get a 120 gig for the XBox, you probably make some $$
