    Does xbox one hdd use a proprietary connector?

    As self-repair is a violation of the terms of service, that's not something that can be discussed on the forums.

    What are your thoughts with the Xbox One Slim?

    Ah yes, the "adapter" program. Kinda like the one they used to allow Files to be moved from the old MS Xbox 360 proprietary HDD to their new Xbox 360 proprietary HDD. Elephant in the room says, Kinect is dead.

    Oh, I am the only one who noticed the price of the larger HDD is a little skewed when simply considering using a much cheaper existing external HDD with larger capacity?

    Need Hard Drive Space?

    [quote user="Irvinraw"]can I purchase this hard drive and not be worried about being banned?[/quote]No.
    Not sure if ms allows nonproprietary hard drives in the Xbox.
    That's not really the issue. The HDD itself is not proprietary. What is proprietary
    is the custom formatting and security data.

    There are no third parties licensed (authorized) to provide HDDs for the 360 console. Use of unauthorized upgrades is prohibited as per the Terms of Use.

    No one ouside Microsoft can definitively state that an unauthorized drive will never result in a console ban. No one inside Microsoft has confirmed an unauthorized HDD will not result in a ban.
    Also, does anyone know if ms will be upgrading hds this
    holiday.
    320GB is the largest announced, though that's for the 360 S. The largest drive that was available for the original 360 was 250GB.

    250GB Slim hardrive not recgonized by my xbox

    The Xbox 360 uses a proprietary file system, you cannot format it outside of the console. Also connecting your Xbox HDD to a PC is strictly against the ToU.

    Using old hard drive for Xbox slim?

    No, you can't even use a normal hard drive like you can on your PS3.

    You're going to need one of MS' comically overpriced proprietary HDDs....
