View Full Version : I found have the XBOX equation figured out!!!!

02-25-2002, 05:13 PM
After months of pondering and seconds of research I Have answered my question to: "How many blocks are in the XBOX hard drive"? Well I will show you my calculations below

On the XBOX 1MB=62.75 blocks. I found this out by dividing 502 (blocks) by 8(mb) There for I multiplied 1000(mb) by 62.75(blocks) and then 62,750(blocks for every GB) by 8(GB)

XBOX memory unit
8MB / 502 blocks

XBOX Hard Drive
8GB (8000 MB) / 502,000 blocks:cool:

How come the XBOX doesn't tell you straight out that it has 502,000 blocks instead of 50,000+?

Tell me what you think. And if any one has taken there XBOX below 50,000+ tell me!!!!

I read somewhere last week that it has 300,000 blocks.. I'll try to find the site from where i got this info from.

man those are some good calculations! but i also heard that the memory is 300,000 blocks!

You forgot to muiltiply 62,750 blocks by 8... cause there 62,750 blocks in 1 GIG... Is this right.. if it is ten there a total of 502,000 blocks

Snoopy is right, you didnt multiply again, instead you said "8GB(1000MB)" which we all know is wrong...but anywayyou forgot one KEY element...saving games and soundtracks isint 8MBS...the HD is partitioned, and you only get a little less than half that for game saves and such, which would be the "blocks"

oh thank you i did miss a step but i fixed it as you can see. HOLY XBOX has alot of blocks!!!!!!! that means that Halo saved games are about 3.1872509960159362549800796812749 MB! :D

Who cares how much memory it still rocks

LoL, through all this math stuff, this guy has deduced the best calculation of all "WHO CARES HOW MUCH MEMORY, IT STILL ROCKS" and he is exactly right, and thats all the calculatory advice that i'll need the next time i buy an XBOX game.

BTW, thanx for the heads up on the memory thing Seth, and all his math helpers:cool:

Its cool to be reminded how great our XBOX'es are now and then, just to re-assure us that we have made the best gaming console decision known to man!

Untill next time, the GRAVEDIGGER has spoken:mad:
