Introduction
This tutorial will explain how you can format an Xbox 360 Harddrive so it can be used in your PC.. This is great for anyone who may have a spare Xbox 360 HDD laying around the place.

Please note that you do this at your own risk.

Required Hardware/Software
- Xbox 360 Hard Drive
- Hard Disk Low Level Format Tool (download here)

Let's Get Started

4. Once you have selected your hard disk from the menu click on "Continue", and then the "LOW-LEVEL FORMAT" tab.

5. Click "FORMAT THIS DEVICE" and wait for the application to finish.

6. When it's finished formatting, go into your start menu or control panel in windows and find "Administrative Tools" and launch "Computer Management" so we can initialize the drive.

7. Now click on "Disk Management", and it will ask you to initialize the disk, just click yes or ok.
