How to connect an extenal hard drive to my Xbox?


Get an external hard drive with a USB 2.0 connection. You need this connection to connect the drive to the console. Most recently manufactured hard drives
should have this type of USB adapter included. Format the hard drive to read FAT32 files. Using a Windows PC, create an FAT32 partition on the drive and format the volume. You'll need a program like
Partition Magic to do this. Load all the content you want from your PC onto the external drive. This should consist of photo files, MP3s and any other files that can be read on the Xbox
hard drive. Remove the external hard drive from your PC. Plug it into your Xbox 360 console through the USB port. go to the Media menu on your Xbox screen. Select "Portable Device" from the menu. All the readable files saved on the external drive should be available to
read on your Xbox 360 I am also adding a video//check it out if doubt persists.. vote for me...

Sounds like the hard drive will not initialize . This problem is most likely
your hard drive. Try another hard drive . If the problem persist then you have
time out error that will some times trip the 360 to display 3 red lights . First
try another drive . And post the results and I'll advise accordingly.

I've had my console for about a year now, and a couple weeks after i bought Halo Reach, as i was playing online, it said "Could not write, possible problem is that you have removed the hard drive or memory...


the problem may come from the hard drive which means that it may have a virus like a computer or that the hardrive may have a malfuntion and cant be able to read to the xbox 360 so it is considered to buy a new hardrive and recover your profile/ enter xbox.com to get all the downloads that was on the last hard drive

When i turn on my Ps3, i get a blue sparkly screen,nothing else.


I had a simular problem!
If the problem your having is caused by the same thing mine was then this is how to fix it ...
1. Buy a External case like this one.. http://www.amazon.co.uk/IOMAX-External-Enclosure-Laptop-Powered/dp/B001EEQQ8Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1279755665&sr=8-1-catcorr
2. Remove your ps3 hardrive by taking of the cover on the side and removing the blue screw, then remove the tray from around the hardrive.
3. Place the hardrive in the external case.
4 Plug usb external case into computer, goto my computer then right click ps3 hardrive that will now show up.
5. Right click the drive and click format
6. After formating put the drive back into the ps3 and the ps3 will then come up with a message follow the instructions... and your ps3 will now work again.
(by doing this you will lose all your ps3 saves, music and videos and so on it will be like resetting your ps3 to when you bought it.)

Hope this works!
