I am contemplating buying a hard drive to add to my xbox (4GB flash memory only). I'm not paying for the official microsoft xbox hd that is marked up like 90% over retail of the same drive that isn't official.
Question: is it as simple as buying a 2.5" SATA hard drive and formatting in the correct format and plugging it in? Voided warranty? Will I get kicked off xbox live?

Yes, there are plenty of Youtube videos. Consider that the next xbox is right around the corner. If you need the space now then do what you need to do. If you are just trying to plan ahead you may want to invest it into the 720.

Probably going to do this. I have probably 30 jump drives between my house and my moms. I'm just looking for more space so my kid can download demos and play them. He never keeps interest in a game beyond a day or two, but every now and then he'll want to play the lego's star wars demo we downloaded 10 months ago.
