    Default WTT: 200GB SATA or IDE hard drive for XBOX (or something..?)

    Noted: Edited, please re-read (changed shipping terms)

    I've got a few extra 200GB SATA WD hard drives with about a year left on their warranties. Looking to trade one of them (the SATA or IDE) for a used Xbox - no hookups/games/anything else required - but power cable would be nice. I'll be modding it and using it as a secondary media center. Open to other offers as well.

    I've got 4 SATA and 1 IDE drive. All are in good shape and were in use until this weekend in my fileserver (upgraded to some 400GBs)

    You pay shipping to get the Xbox to me, and I pay for shipping to get the HD to you.

    PM if interested!

    Slightly off-topic, but would you like to trade stuff I have for one of those SATA drives?

    I -think- my system can handle SATA, I just never used the thing. One more drive to add to my trusty fileserver wouldn't hurt.

    Do SATA drives work with the Xbox? I thought only IDE drives did.

    But there's SATA to IDE adaptors.

    Don't know if they'd work on an XBox, but they exist.

    SATA hard drives don't have master/slave/cable select settings since they are single device per port devices. The xbox requires that the hd be set on cable select.
