Another hard drive for my XBOX?

Got a modded XBOX and Im just about out of space but I do not want to delete any of my games. Can I use an external? Install an internal?
Bought it modded, I do not know anything about XBOX.
I know how to run a couple Apps that are on it and navigate through my dash. thats it.

You can stack up to three internally if you have the proper hardware. Not sure how well it works but I know the parts are available to. Might check out google for more help.

Raptor 700R

What program is it modded with? You might check with them, or explore the external route.

No on the USB HDD support. The XBox 360 supports a USB2.0 external drive, right out of the box, but I haven't heard of anyone converting the game ports on the old XBox to do this. The game ports on the old XBox are essentially modified USB ports.

Your best bet is probably to just buy a new bigger drive and let someone who is comfortable with opening the xbox install it in place of the existing one. It could be done in such a way that you would not lose what you have on the existing drive.....I am 99% sure you should be able to ghost the old drive to the new one and keep everything....anyone actually done it??

ive found a couple website that will do it for you but it costs quite a bit.
Im going to take it around to all my electronice geek friends and see if they know anything. Ill let you guys know if i found out something.

Also: I was looking through a couple other programs on ym xbox and one of them says that I have 3 more spaces for hard drives.

If you want to get the gear to just add a drive (should just be a new bracket), I'll help you get it in. I have modded several XBox's so I know how to get one apart and back together.

Ie ghosted a stock softmodded drive to a 20gb drive w/ xboxhdm.. worked great although it took probably 2.5 hours to do.
