Is it possible to use a pc hard drive in an xbox?

A friend was curious about upgrading his 320gb xbox. He thinks that since the hard drives look similar (computer hard drive and xbox hard drive) that it might be possible for it to work. Someone please help.

You might be able too. No, promise. Both Xbox's use SATA type drives and can be easily plugged in.

Tho I don't know if Microsoft formats their drives a certain way. But if so i wonder if the console will format it once its attached.

You will have to have access to a MS-DOS image for that. Windows will not work on the Xbox hard drive.
