Do the older 120GB 360 Model Hard Drives work in the Slims?

#1XaznzaXPosted 5/25/2013 11:08:05 AM
I have an Elite and the last regular model Xbox 360 before the Slim Version, and two 120 GB hard drives for those consoles. Will those hard drives work in the current Slim models?

Or will I be forced to buy a new 250 GB HD just for the Slim?

Buy a Slim casing for your HDD for $5 on ebay and put your 120 in it and it will work just fine.

What is a "casing"?

Is it something that fits overtop the Elite 120GB drive and then connects to the Slim? Or does this involve opening up the 120gb, removing something, and then putting that into this new "case"?

Ah. Thanks.

After looking this stuff up on Youtube, seems a bit of a pain in the butt though.

What about the "Off Microsoft Brand" 'Generic' hard drives that are half the price of the official products? Are these any good? Does MS have "Hardrive Police" on the team to detect and deactivate your 360 from Live if you use these?

The off brand have no BC if that matters to you at all

Case swap is really easy I did it with my old 20 gb so I could have BC because I made the mistake of buying a aftermarket 120 that did not have it now I have to do a HDD swap anytime I want to play BC games

Use of a third-party HDD will void your console's warranty if you ever send it in to MS for repair, they can detect that you used one even if you don't send it in with the console.

Yes, they can, a simple serial number check, they can even tell if you used a 3rd party HDD that was illegally flashed to play XBox originals.

You can use certain Western Digital hard drives.
