Lookiing for help and advise on where I buy an official xbox 360 hard drive (HDD) from all help greatly appreciated

Hi there

I'm hoping someone out there can point me in the right direction, my son has an XBOX 360 4G and wants to play orignial xbox games on it, please could someone tell me where I can purchase an official hard drive from as I know the 4G does not have this just a flash memeory and when he puts an original game in it comes up woth error message saying  ' you need to attach an xbox hard drive ' I have recently updated the xbox software when alerted to do so by standard message ' your xbox has an update ' and read somewhere that this can sometimes allow you to play the original games but then realised we have the 4G so wouldnt make any difference to this.  If anyone can help or give me some advise I would greatly appreciate it

Many thanks

Like EpicDanny I suggest going to an electronics store or a game shop or check out an online store like amazon.com etc (depending on where you are). You can buy a 320GB hard drive for the new slims for about $100 and the come with a download code for Lego Star Wars III

Be careful when shopping online for hard drives.  There are many knock-off hard drives sold even on amazon.  Your best bet is to buy one from a local store or directly from microsoft.  If you get a knock-off hard drive, you will not have the ability to play original Xbox games as the emulation software is built in to the official drives.  There is no way to add it to a fake drive.

I don't recommend online at all.

Many stores carry the drives.

Walmart, Future Shop, Best Buy, EB, Source... and on and on.
