Hard Drive problems

#1Slayer_22Posted 7/9/2013 4:53:52 PM
My Xbox broke beyond compare a couple of months ago. I got a new Xbox recently and it came with a crappy 4gb Hard Drive. I've been using a flash drive for the most part, but recently I have been having problems. Along with not being able to transfer all my content from my old hard drive(Losing a ton of saves. content, and progress in games) I can't even download the content off my Dragon Age Ultimate disc. And I'm sure I'd have the same problem with other ultimate editions but I'm not as willing to try.

So my problems lie in the internal hard drive. I googled and found a bunch of hard drives, but I don't know whether or not they're "allowed" by microsoft. I can't find any well priced hard drives anywhere(And I don't have 120 dollars handy right now) so will buying one of these hundreds of "AGPtek" hard drives I found on Best Buy screw with anything? Or are they perfectly fine to buy and use? Or is there some way I can use my old hard drive that I don't know about?

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help me out on...well anything really.

Buying any non-official HDD's can potentially get your gamertag banned, and your hardware banned as well.

you maen a phat Hdd? you unscrew a few funky screws from the phat hdd case, pop the hdd out and either just finagle it in the slim or get a slim hdd case for $5 off amazon. I guess technically you could get banned, but over the last few years I'd wager hundreds of thousands of us have done it, and none have been banned afiik

Huh. I don't really know what I should do. Last time I tried to fix something on my xbox, it broke.

Either way, if anyone has any advice or suggestions on some non-overpriced hard drives I'd definitely appreciate it.

1) The internal 4GB storage is not a HDD. It's flash memory. As in, not removable.
2) Like all 360s, your console has a place to insert a removable external HDD.
3) The only hard drives supported by Microsoft are hard drives made by Microsoft. (http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&keywords=hard%20drives%20xbox%20360&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Ahard%20drives%20xbox%20360) The first two.

Anything else and you're getting into console modding territory.
