    Proper use of HDD's


    I realise this has probably been asked many times before but I just can't find a straight answer anywhere.

    Does anyone know if Microsoft will ever open up the Xbox 360 to allow proper external HDD's? I have a 250GB drive on my 360 and the 320GB HDD is very hard to find, plus I don't want to pay the frankly ridiculous asking price for it for an extra 70GB when
    I know I can get a 1TB or 2TB for around the same price.

    Space on my 360 is becoming quite hard to find and I don't want to start faffing around downloading, deleting and re-downloading games whenever I want to play them - I'd rather have them all there.

    Don't they realise 32GB sticks or only using 32GB of any HDD is not helpful and definitely not a solution?

    :)

    Hard-Drive Microsoft 60 Go not recognized when installed.

    External storage devices can only use 16Gb of space at a time.

    Only official internal HDD's can use more than that.

    USB drive compatibility

    use a data transfer cable for xbox HDD's. i had the same problem, my old HD was for the old xbox but when i bought my new xbox i had to use a transfer cable simply because the HDD's were different to one another.

    Rental films - am unable to play them

    First of all, using a non-MS HDD in your console is against the Terms of Use of Xbox LIVE. Anything you download to or try to access from this HDD is not supported. Please get a proper HDD and try again.

    Cant Buy Games if i CANT STORE THEM Microsoft hates its users

    16gig is the max you can use for an external drive. A personal HDD doesn't have the proper firmware and license code.

    No Xbox Gamebar Capture Folder

    Thanks, but no, it's a proper Sata HDD directly connected to the motherboard.
