    Yeah I made sure it was fully connected by taking apart my old xbox 360 slim hard drive and replacing it with the new. I used 320GB bin.

    Are these games originals?

    Check in the bios for the manufacturer. If it is still western digital then the flash didn't work. If it is, then undo the drive then try to re-flash it.

    When I boot from usb, I type "hddhackr" and nothing happens. Anyone else have the same problem? Am I supposed to wait a very long time before it pops up?

    EDIT: The 160gb hdd that I bought off ebay may have come DOA. Says to check cable.

    Try freedos instead of ms-dos when you use the usb formatting program.Then copy the files back onto the usb drive.

    Hi guys,
    I just want to upgrade my 20GB HDD Xbox 360 and this post seems be very good to help with that :)
    However I have a question because I only have a WD 200GB (WD2000BEVS). Can I use this one or I will need to acquire a new with 250GB or 320GB?
    Thanks for your support.

    You can use the 120gb bin file and only use 120gb of 200gb. Make sure to keep your undo file so you can change the drive into 200gb usable for pc use.

    Okay, I have re-flashed the drive. This time it didn't show the message about LBA, But still my Xbox can't detect the hard drive. When I downloaded the hddhackr zip file, there was an extra folder called "Recovery Files" was I supposed to put that in the usb also?

    Nope. Try this, undo the hard drive then use this tool in this thread to test/wipe the drive. Data Lifeguard Diagnostic For Western Digital Drives

    Exactly, just flash your HDD and everything should be OK. I just did that right now and I'm ready to play.

    Does anyone knows if, with this process, I can play online without any problem? I ask this because I think that already read something about it...

    When i tried with non-original, the new dash show the following error: "The disc is unreadable....clean the disc with a soft cloth...blabla"
    When i tried with original disc, it said: "Couldn't play game. Try downloading the game again."

    is there any solution ? :(

    Try clearing the cache by selecting the hard drive in storage and pressing Y, select clear system cache.
