    Xbox 360 and External HDD

    Has anyone had any problems connecting an external HDD to the xbox 360 after the latest update?

    I had an external HDD formatted in HFS+ (the format that would work with the 360) but it now doesn't recognise it after the update last week. I've looked around the internet and can't find any information on it - anyone else had the same problems?

    Cheers :thumbsup:

    Yeah my Pen drive works fine (FAT32) - I think they may have changed something in relation to the new feature that allows you to save profile date to pen drives.

    I just took a brand new USB2 Iomega (Seagate 500 gb) drive out the box formatted it to HFS + created a music folder a video folder and it's playing some music I put on there.. A bit slow though

    I cannot use it as a usb device eg set 16gb aside (I get the disk is protected error)

    I updated mine and it started freezing straight away and now has the RROD, Anyone else get this problem?

    Yeah it's a 2.5 250GB Formac HDD (cheap brand) - i'll try the different ports but it requires 2 USB ports (one for power and one for data)

    I've been messing on with my usb drives all day because of you [Thanks you gave me something to do . I was really bored] and figured out where to place my own created themes. Info below for anyone that's interested.

    usb dir structure to place themes for usb pens / hard drives etc with $SystemUpdate_9199 when using Xtaf Explorer.
