Will I be able to play the original Xbox games on it? I heard you can if you have an official Xbox 360 slim hard drive that goes into the 4 Gig Xbox 360 system. I bought it off eBay for 19.99 used. I'll have it in a few days... I know how to install it but will I have the necessary software on it to play Xbox original games?

Well, before I ask, did it look like a legit x360 slim hard drive? Cause usually the HDD would say "Xbox 360" somewhere embedded in the shell. Along with the little tab that says 320GB around it. Or it should look something like this...

And if not, that means what you got wasn't a genuine Xbox 360 hard drive, cause it has a partition to play original Xbox games, non-genuine Xbox 360 HDD's will not have it. But if and when it comes delivered, check it out and see.

I don't have any original Xbox games, but I got a Toshiba 500 GB External HDD for mine, and the system asked me to reformat it when I plugged it in.

Well, I'm not sure if external hard drives will let you play original xbox games installed, but it never hurts to try, or ask somebody that has done this before.

As long as it's an MS OEM HDD it will let you play b/c 360 games with it.
