I started searching for long lasting drives and found this. Just thought I would share.

western digital always made a great hard drive in my opinion. I would not even waste time with a old used drive. There ain't nothing like putting a load of work in and the drive dies and you loose everything. Also i am pretty sure most Wd are lockable .

Here's my tried and true:

80 pin cable: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00006 ... UTF8&psc=1

IDE to SATA Adaptor: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B008X8 ... UTF8&psc=1

1TB Drive: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0088P ... UTF8&psc=1

Important that the IDE to SATA adaptor have jumpers for Slave or Master.

I use chimp to clone the drive, then Xpartioner to split the 1TB into 2 halves (F & G). I found having only 1 large partition would create write errors when sending over the files to the xbox.

Best of luck!

That's because of a bug in certain versions of XB Partitioner which doesn't set the cluster size correctly. While there is a workaround using both XBPartitioner v1.0 and 1.1, you can also just use XB Partitioner v1.3 to partition your drive, and you'll be set without having to worry about write errors

I was saying the write errors occured when cloning the drive with chimp (which automatically allocates all available space to F (900 + gb) and leaving it without partitioning at all; like I do will smaller drives.
