    OH YES! Last 2 weeks I got myself 2 classic consoles which are modded! One is the classic XBOX and two is the old but good PS1 (grey version, not the white one.) Together they can play lots of burned games and the collection keeps on growing! Also with the XBOX 1 came Halo 1, so GOOD TIMES AHEAD!

    Inside the XBOX resides a 10 GB Hard drive, but uh... I can't seem to know how to put Emulators on this one, so yeah... It has been split into several partitions, why? Ask the previous owner... LOL!

    The XBOX is modded with UnleashX, and the PS1 is chipped. I think the XBOX is chipped also?!

    You have some nice classic consoles there, there's a lot you can do with a modded Xbox.

    Look in to installing XBMC For Xbox on the console, it will then be capable of playing almost any non-hd video files you can throw at it. I used my Xbox for many years to play movies and tv shows.

    You need to connect the Xbox to your network, you can then use an FTP client to copy content to and from the Xbox's hard drive. (just be careful what you delete, you could easily mess your console up)

    If your Xbox is running unleash it will be modded, either with a modchip or softmod. By default the Xbox has various partitions, C:\ is for the Dashboard, D:\ is the DVD drive, E:\ is the partition for saves / user data, and if you have F:\ and G:\ the hard drive has been upgraded and thats all your extra space.

    The classic Xbox has by far the largest homebrew scene of any console to date!

    Enjoy it, there's so much more you can do than playing burned games on it. Take the time to learn and use the console to its full potential :)

    Meh, when someone says classic then i instantly think of Sega mega drive and ps1. About xbox, well, probably one friend owned that, and it was quite fun, but the two other were a lot more accessible for us in the childhood.

    The Sega Megadrive / PS1 were the consoles that were popular when i was growing up too. I would have been 15 when the Xbox was released here, i still conceder it a classic console however. It will be 2x console generations old by the end of this year.
