    XBOX 360 External Hard Drive Help Required

    Hi all I am currently looking into getting an external hard drive for the xbox and wondered what the best overall drive is for these features.Size between 500gb-750gb to be used mainly for wmv movies and if possible after the 17th Nov update backing up games to hd although the latter I am not sure if it will be possible.
    All replys appreciated

    you won't be able to back game sup to an external hdd and it also needs to be formatted to HFS+ file system for the xbox to recognise it.

    I used mac drive to do this with mine

    Any FAT variant or HFS+ with the latter being able to store files larger than 4gb apparently (never tried it myself).

    If you buy a 3.5" drive then it will require its own power adapter more than likely.

    I wanna do exactly the same.
    Am waitingof for XBOX to return my console, so hopefully you will get a load of info on this.
    Can you back up your films that you currently have on DVD onto your external drive and then watch on the XBOX -if so what format do the films need to be in MP3, AVI etc..

    360 plays avi if you download the codecs from xbox live
