No, you can't copy movies to the 360's hard drive. You can play them from an external hard drive though.

Yeah the streaming from PC to Xbox idea was never a good idea, its much easier to put your media on a USB HDD or mem stick and play them from that. Also saves on having to have your PC on as well....

Yes you can transfer movies, music pictures to an[COLOR="Red"] external [/COLOR]Hard Drive, just make sure its formatted to FAT32.

I thought you can't use USB hard drives on a Xbox 360?

I use an internal Hard Drive, I bought a SATA to USB kit from ebay for £2. works a treat.
Better than paying loads of money for one of these external Hard Drives.

Incorrect, it's better to format to HFS+ and then you can have files bigger than 4GB.

I have a LaCie external drive which works fine. Have loads of ~12GB HD films on there and they play perfectly smooth.

It only recognises FAT32 and HFS+, the latter being so that it can support iPods.
