    Xbox 360 Help...

    Was keen on streaming movies from my pc to my tv via the 360 but it's proving very cumbersome.

    Could i transfer to an external hard-drive then to the 360's hard-drive and play from there?

    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....

    Hi,

    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 tried once but it didnt work but worked fine using USB pen

    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.
