    I am loking for a bigger hard drive, and looked at one which the seller had in an xbox. He says the xbox locked it and I wondered what it would take to unlock it

    i dont think that there is anything physical different about an Xbox hdd, maybe if you ran a low level format on it, it would allow you to use it then, you will have to have the make/model ie seagate, western digital, etc. and d/l the makers disk utility to a bootable 1.44 floppy disk or burn an iso image to a cd.
