Sure it'* not repairable?

What you get for hacking it...

Actually those are neat things, i think games should still be paid for and all but it'* a neat thing.

Unfortunately the drive is flat out dead!
I am going to send it in for warranty repair...but lost a lot of man hours
loading that baby up!

I can understand and respect your thoughts on paying for the games....

but this is the way I look at it....I sure as hell wouldn't pay
for the 120 games i got for it anyway...
I probably wouldn't have bought the box if it wasn't hackable

I look at it the same way as mp3'*...
I have over 1500 albums on 180 cd'*....but if i couldn't have downloaded them....I would still never have bought them anyway...lol...
( I think most of us can say we have downloaded music....)

I know you can go up to a 120.....maybe higher...but I think 120 is the max...
Works out great!
Holds tons of games...
Mp3,* ...its got a media player now...can store divx moviez..
very cool!
I will get another drive this week...just stinks having to reload..again!
My buddy has been running the 120 for months now..no issues.
