Ridiculous. Surely it would be more cost efficient to buy a drive and fit it yourself?

Which Xbox is it son?

Of its the old Xbox 360 they are easy mate, just buy another drive and swap it over, plug and play as you would a pc.

You don't just swap it as the drive is programed to the motherboard. You either flash the new drive or swap the drive and take out the circuit board but that requires soldering. I can do it for forty

When I did mine, I followed this video, and used board from my drive in new drive, no flashing involved, and no soldering, and it worked perfect, and still working now.

It depends on drive, some drives need solder, one of them doesn't.

Not being technical it's a 360 premium with a 60 gig hard drive. Can't tell you anymore as it's all Chinese writing.
