Naive Mom Needs Hard Drive Help for XBox 360 - Minecraft Says Out Of Space
About every 3 or 4 months I drop in over here to ask for your expert advice on some gaming question. You guys have always been great and I appreciate your patience when I ask stupid newbie mom questions!
DS, who is 8, has become a huge Minecraft fan. In March, I bought him the Xbox 360 with 4GB of memory when he got straight A's. He has Xbox live and I have clearly gotten my money's worth out of this system.
Last night when he turned the game on, there was a HUGE update/download for Minecraft. The normal updates/downloads take a minute or two but this one took 10-15 minutes. (You guys probably know all of this). So when he was done playing in his "world" he went to "save" and it said he couldn't save because he was out of space. He was not happy as all of his "work" would be lost. (Too bad he doesn't work this hard at cleaning his room!! lol) Anyway, I have been reading around and found out that it is possible for his hard drive to be full. I found some YouTube video showing how to install an additional hard drive in the side panel. (This ought to be interesting to watch me do this!!)
My question (finally) is what do I buy? Is there a special hard drive for Xbox or will any HD work? What size do I get? Where do I get it? (I know not to say Best Buy as I just about got killed in here the last time I said those words!! Any idea of approximate cost range?
Again, thanks in advance for your help, advice and patience!!
