Im on the scrounge, as usual. :)

does anyone have a hard drive they wanna give me? I'll pay the postage, and a pint Guiness Drink

dont need to be very big, small would do in fact, 10GB would be fine.

its simply to load some linux on to transfer to another computer cos Im having serious problems trying to burn copies that work in different drives, as for USB sticks, well you can stick them, all I can do with them is pictures! :D

Im a lot thick like that see. :(

thanks,

Albert.

I seriously threw out a perfectly good hard drive this week. Was 20GB. Bashed it with a hammer to keep the identity thieves away but you could have had it if you'd asked last week.

No help at all - sorry :|

no probs apache,

that seems to be the way actually,

most people mash them up or drown them or whatever,

suppose you cant be too careful these days, esp if you have left windoze on it and someone decides to upgrade 'your' copy so your new PC suddenly shows as having a pirate version.... :| :| :|

I dunno, maybe I'll just have a poke round the tip tomorrow, :)

Hi, Steps

Did you get my PM about a hard drive for you (sent last night, but after you'd gone off-line)? Not sure if the system is working properly yet, or maybe I screwed it up somehow.

Tried the hard drive last night in a usb enclosure and windows couldn't initialise it so it must be locked. And I dont have the original xbox to unlock it. So it a mere brick i'm affraid. Will look to see if I have anymore.
