    You can hack certain drives with dumped HDDSS.bin's from official drives to work inside a 360.

    Their exactly the same as regular 2.5 inch HDD's but they have a special security sector written to it that locks them out for use in a 360.

    The only HDD sizes available to the 360 are 20,60,120,250,320 GB
    These sectors are dumped and can be written to any (equal sized WD Scorpio blue) 2.5 inch HDD.

    To bad you didn't buy if from Gamestation when the sale was going on. The prices were fairly low. I'm guessing you don't have a jtag/rgh 360 so using only the above sizes would work well. At any rate try to find out if there are any decent deals for a used one else by a 360 hard drive enclosure and a hard drive of one of the recommend sizes listed above.

    Used HDD's are probably the best option for OP indeed.

    If OP where to hack the HDD, OP also needs to restore the Xbox compability partition and the Emulator.
    Which can be fairly tricky
