Just asking as I want to try it myself and wondered if others have done it.

This isn't possible, as far as I'm aware. IDE drives don't go up to large enough capacities to hold that many games, since they can be anywhere from 1-6 GB, usually being 4 GB. I've only got 25 games, and that's nearly 70 gigs, meaning 950 games would be 2.5 TB. Even with an IDE to SATA adapter, I believe you can only go up to 2 TB with a SATA drive, so there's no way you could get them all. However, whatever list you saw probably included duplicate games, such as ones with PAL and NTSC versions, or even PAL/NTSCU/NTSCJ. Realistically I don't think there's 950 unique Xbox games, the console wasn't around very long and wasn't very popular.

Thanks for replyI found an article sayingvtgere was 894 made for Xbox which were america, Europe and Japan releases.still a lot of games for this console. I tried a 1tb 1.5 and a 2tb. They all worked with ice to sata adapter. Some of them on the original list may have been duplicates I haven't check.
I've got 241 of the games going to try and fit all of the 894 on a drive. Is there any other people who have a lot of these games and have you got them on ur nodded xbox

Just as a reference point, I have 1500GB worth of storage on my modded Xbox 360 and I have 180 Xbox 360 games, 40 OG Xbox games, and a lot of other ROM's on the console. I have like 200GB left to use.

If you hard or soft mod an OG Xbox you can get much bigger HDD's in the console, but is a bit of a process.

Huh, for some reason I thought 2 TB was the limit, maybe that's the PS2 HDD I was thinking of.

You might of been right, But was updated because of higher capacity drives being availiable now. Also, Xbox was only single layered dvds so max wouldve been 4.7gb and probably less since not every game hogged all the space.

Did you get a massive torrent for that? Where was it from? Ive got quite a bit of og xbox games so downloading them all is probably easiest.

You can get Xbox games from theisozone, they've got every game as far as I can tell. That's where I get mine, anyway.

There probably isn't a torrent with all the games as they are old and I don't think anyone will seed this type of torrent for years. All Xbox original games are readily available on a lot of sites one of them has been mentioned earlier. And yes they were only on single layered dusk I forgot about that and some of the games are only a few hundred megabytes not all are 4.7gb so happy days more can be fit onto HDD. I'm gonna need to try a 3 or 4tb and fill that baby up with games.

If you can say the tracker, i would like to join. Only problem is my seed ratios are pretty low because i get freaked out at leaving it seeding to hours or days. How would you say to fix that or do i even need to fix it? Is the best place to sign up torrentinvites.com? or is there a better site

There are better sites there's probably only a few private that are good. And a few others I can think of that are nearly as fast but not private and depends what ur searching for. I can think of 2 one needs u to sign up and seed but other needs u to sign up but u don't need to seed on it. When u seed u don't need to seed all day and leave ur PC on. You can seed for a few hours a day if u want but this will take u longer to get the ratio. I just leave mine seedingvwhen I'm on the PC then I switch it off then seed again when I'm on it. But I find the best way to seed all night is from a PC just run it off the battery and not the main as it won't take any electric if that's what urvworried about. But all in all make sure u seed each torrent u get for at least 24 hours in total. I seed mine for 48 just to be sure hope this helps

I doubt a single partition that's over 2TB is going to work on the original xbox. However, if you split it up in a few smaller partitions...
