Xbox 360 external HDD question

I'm looking to buy another 360. I've had one in the past but it came with a HDD attached already. The question is, I have a couple of external USB 2.5" DDs that i have for my laptop. Can I use one of them as an external on the 360 for game saves etc...

That's what I thought, but I get different answers when searching. Some say you can't use them at all, others say that the USB ports on a 360 are read only, so you can use media file stored on the external through the 360 (music, photos, video etc...) and some say that you can use them like a 360 memory card if you set them up in a certain way (formatting and partioning in a certain config).

You can use some external drives but they are certain ones.

no, you CAN use any USB hard drive plugged into the front, but NOT for game saves.. ONLY for music, pictures etc..

P.S. it can be used for game saves but not for xbox live content. :thumbsup:
