Today I got my PS2 from and Ultimate Matrix from Good day for me. I already had a friend lined up to buy the PS2 a month ago, so I bought a used xbox and modded it. I did a TSOP flash, 160 gig hard drive upgrade, Clear xbox case, custom jewel, jewel light and added a hard drive activity led.

New2Scene, where'd you get the HD? I need to buy an internal to put in a case for my Mac Mini, and that deal is pretty sweet.

The HD was a Circuit City special about a month ago. I just checked their site and they didn't have any listed at that price. It might come up again. I know around the same time Best Buy had one too. has one though for $90 which isn't too bad either. http//[=http//]http// Is it to replace the internal mac mini drive though? I belive they use a smaller laptop size drive.

They do, but I'm thinking of just getting one and putting it in an external case. Either that or getting MicroNet's MiniMate.

Holy crap Dude. Thanks! WHere did you look? Did you go in store or buy online?


27-04-2005 15:47:28

do you have to format the hd a certain way for the xbox to recognize it or does it know what the deal is regardless long as its pc formatted?
