Hacker Releases Tool to Add Third Party HDD to Xbox 360

Microsoft’s advice to those with their Xbox 360 consoles filled to the brim with demos and videos is simply to just buy another hard drive. That solution may not be cheap, as the official 20GB drive retails for $99.99. The Xbox 360 modding community, however, has discovered a solution that could prove to be much more economical.

A hacker who goes by the handle “TheSpecialist,” has released a tool that allows any Western Digital BEVS SATA hard drive to be used on the Xbox 360. A quick price search for WD hard drives find that twice the drive can be had for half the price – the lowest-end 40GB WD Scorpio drive for $50 – a cost effective, but adventurous alternative.
