    SSD?
    Then you'll need a IDE to SATA converter.
    And hope the SSD is lockable or have a modchip in yer Xbox.

    Honestly, I'd say don't do it.
    It won't speed it up the loading much but it's a waste of a good SSD.

    Do not do it. The IDE bus would make it to slow to be worth it.

    As already said you need a SATA>IDE bridge and it's not really worth it. You might get a small boost in things that do random reads but that's it.

    You are better off using it in a laptop.
