  1. Can I regularly swap out proprietary hard drives?


    For my xbox 360, can I have multiple hard drives filled with games and switch them out regularly depending on what I want to play? Or is that bad for the console, or impossible for some other reason? This is assuming I keep my profile info on the 4 gig drive
    that is built in.

    I want to know before I buy a second hard drive, and I have not been able to find this discussed anywhere. Thanks!

    :)

    I regularly swap my cases for the type I prefer, and I have had new sealed games scratched whilst still in the unwrapped case, so yes I share your frustration with flimsy hard to use cases...

    Can you use any 2.5" HDD in an XBOX 360 E?

    Can I regularly swap out proprietary hard drives?

    I presume that you're speaking of the 250 or 320gb hard drives for the 360 that you have. The answer is yes you can have multiple drives if you so choose.

    You can also use multiple usb sticks if you like as well.

    Two XBOX S consoles and Two 250GB HDD

    There are several issues with regularly swapping HDDs between consoles as outlined above. It's also worth testing to ensure the music files play when swapped to another console, something I can do later tonight.

    I will NOT be getting the new Xbox Console. (China may want their wall back.)

    With the Ps3 you can take out their hard drive and put whatever one you want to in it.If you want a 1TB go for it.What stinks with MS is you have to buy their over priced proprietary HDD.

    The lack of replacable HDD slot is a joke !

    [quote user="ArmyMedic75"]

    The only reason why they aren't allowing swappable hard drives is for the same reason as this gen they want to make more money off of proprietary hard drives

    [/quote]

    I must have missed the announcement where they said the only external drives allowed will be proprietary.
