    If this has been addressed before, I apologize.
    1. What about using 3.5 in. hard drives via an extension cable? I have a pile of the 3.5's around. I'd rather buy cable than buy another HDD.
    2. What does a a successfully patched HDD look like to Windows systems? Usable?

    Found answer to #1: power. Soldering. I have another solution: power from my PC. A 3.5" solution will be a frankenstein anyway.
    Still digging for #2. If I ever get a HDD patched, I'll just have to plug it into a windows box to find out.

    I'd have thought you'd be able to tell from the UNDO file?
    WD3200KS-00PFB0
    MOBO: MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL CO.,LTD 790XT-G45 (MS-7388) with latest BIOS
    It's a 3.5" drive
    See 1st posting for the UNDO files.

    Usually any problems like that are related to the sata chipset been used to hack the drive, I had no trouble when i created this tutorial years ago. However when i came to do a newer drive using modern hardware I had a lot of trouble. In the end I used an older netbook.

    I know it doesn't help much but it's a tricky topic to really provide much more info on than I have in the tutorial sadly.

    Not sure however i've just added the WD5000BPVX to the comparability list as working. All drives in the BPVX should work.

    The WD5000BPVX was confirmed working by duraband420.

    Anyone know if WD2500LPVX would work? Also if I do not care about backwards compatibility do I need to do the Restoring the Xbox Classic Emulator and User Content: section.

    The drives in the LPVX series should work, someone has confirmed the WD5000LPVX does. I'd imagine the 250gb version of that drive will also work with that in mind.

    You will not be banned, the first post in this thread has a list.

    A good drive to hack would be the WD5000LPVX
