    So i'm trying to upgrade my hard drive for my xbox. I'm using chimp to clone my "old" hard drive onto my "new" hard drive. However, whenever i am using the program, which requires me to remove the IDE cable from one drive and move it to the other drive, i recieve the following error...

    "unable to get first sector"

    I have yet to find a working solution. I have tried a few other newer versions of chimp but they are quite complicated and have yet to get them to work.

    This is the drive i purchased

    Okay.... I'm not saying i'm dumb, but i guess the guides i were looking at were very vague.
    Apparently, you unplug the Disk Drive IDE cable and plug it into the "new" drive...
    ya... sorry
