    Sorry, I don't have any IDE that big. OOC, why IDE? If it's a controller limitation you could always get something like this (or a controller card...that might be cheaper in the long run).

    You might be able to fit a SATA HDD with the adapter that x88x mentioned in that case from what I can see.

    This might also work: http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12537

    I have a 750gb in IDE, as well as a 500gb in another machine.

    They DO exist..

    Why not mod it to be an external optical drive instead?

    lolz and i want em! heh and no crenn.. no chance in hell LOL there was barely enough room to fold the 2 inch long IDE cable... i coulda gotten a sata case for the same price...
    but i got IDE so i could use a drive i have.. and upgrade later...
    im not looking for something new heh... if i was gunna use sata i would put it right into the 360
    dont need more than IDE anyways... not like USB will catch up to full sata lol

    just wanna find something uber cheap.. old hardware is welcome... aslong as it has been treated right
