Open 360 S HDD Enclosure

Has anyone tried or posted a manual for opening the HDD enclosuer for an Xbox 360 S model HDD. I want to upgrade my old non-S Xbox to the 320 GB drive, but MS doesn't make it in the old enclosure style, and I'm not a fan of aftermarket.

If I crack open the S HDD case will it still just be a standard 2.5 inch drive inside like the old enclosure?

I've tried searching the web for this but have been unsuccessful thus far. I figured if anyone would know the answer it would be the iFixit community.

So I just went ahead and tried it. And yes, inside the Xbox 360 S Hard Drive enclosure is a standard 2.5 inch hard drive that can then be inserted into the original Xbox 360 hard drive enclosure.

Downside is that the S enclosure is glued together, so getting the drive out is very destructive to the casing. If you have a heat gun maybe you could soften the glue and take it appart without damaging the case, but I do not.

Anyway, short version. If you, like me, want to upgrade to the latest and greatest Xbox 360 hard drive size, have the old model Xbox 360, don't have the means/patience/skill to hack your own disk, and require the use of the original Xbox emulator (the aftermarket drives I looked at do not have this) then yes, you can use the Xbox S Hard Drive in your original Model 360. Just follow the previously posted guide for dissassembly of the hard drive enclosure, and take care when cracking open the S enclosure.

That was the question, not if YOU YOURSELF could do it, but if YOU can HOW do you do it? WOW answer the question...no idea how yours ended up thebest answer when it answers nothing unless you edit and say how to remove apart without breaking enclosure, ie howto soften glue etc...read a question before answering please then asnswer it as if you need to know how, not if you know how. Thats yes or no vs yes and here's how....open vs closed question. You left the main part out, HOW to do it!!!!

HOW: At front of drive case a,where SATA plug in ETC is, Heat the top of it slowly back and forth focusing on corners and thin seam...with a slight melt maybe, take a knife and pops open at front seam, then one side at time, then back comes right off. Same heating on sides.and bamm HDD to SSD or larger HDD whatever.Use DisKGenius Pro portable from Torrentgalaxy .to by Prometheus,format to Fat 32, on PC and the upgraded one, then clone one drive to other using external drive cases or USB to SATA cords,USB 3.0 Ports obv faster and perfectly clone overwriting with image to new SSD so MS cant tell isnt original HDD but then right cl this PC ,manage, see the open space unallocated, right cl extend if new dr bigger, and bammm! Done larger SSD or HDD MS cant tell is not official but add soft mod to play backup discs (download backups from Pbay torrents ISOs etc) playable direct from Drive or Flash drive after mod req no eqp just a flash dr.

Thanks, but while that is interesting it doesn't tell me if an MS original S model hard drive can be removed from its enclosure and put into the old style enclosure.

You mean extract the Xbox S HD to put it in a original Xbox enclosure?

I guess you should try, maybe it works. If it doesn't work used the "hack" procedure.
