Don't now about ssd drives, never had to try one.

You can pick up old IDE & SATA drives by salvaging them from old SKY HD Boxs (or other Satellite/Media TV Boxes). An IDE can go straight in but a SATA will need an IDE to SATA adapter and the IDE ribbon replacing with an 80wire one.

Hope this can be of help to you and others.

EDIT *Google seems to indicate some SSD drives are installable but it seems to be a little over the top for an OG XBox.

An SSD will be a waste. The OG xbox can not even read Sata 3 drives at max speed.

You will want to Tsop Flash the system (google for how to) and install a 1 or 2 TB Sata HDD. This will make the OG a beast.
