Xbox 360 Slim HDD/game issue? Please help.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So my brother bought the original xbox game GTA San andreas, and we have the 4gb slim version of the xbox slim.

Then he's told he had to get an HDD (he bought the game through xbox live points..) which made him go in a rampage (Which I had to deal with of course).

My question is, on amazon.com there are "Generic" HDD's. There is a 60gb which is basicly all we need for 35. Will the generic HDD have any problems? Will it allow for people to install games on it?

And my other question is is there any way we can get him an xbox 360 slim HDD for less than 35?

Now I actually have a reason to dislike consoles.

What I would do is go online and buy a used 20gb xbox original hard drive. They can be found super cheap these days. Then, crack open the case and get to the hard drive, and put it in the slim. This way, you get a legit xbox hard drive, and don't have to deal with some generic crap. MS can tell if you're using an official hard drive or not.

Dunno if this is the best how-to video, but it came up first in results:
