    Xbox 360 XBox 360 NTFS v Fat32

    I've just come to realise my XBox 360 doesnt support my 500GB NTFS formatted external drive.

    However, I have HD content I want to watch from it on my XBox.

    I've looked around the internet and found that HFS+ (Mac file system) would support this, but when coming to transfer files over it becomes a pain in the arse.

    Has anyone found a way to play from an external hard drive to a XBox360 with NTFS or other ways to play over 4GB files without streaming via TVersity?

    HFS is the only way.

    yaeh whats the problem with HFS+ dude? As long as you have macdrive on your PC you can format/read and copy any data onto the drive just like any other standard usb device. I suppose it can be a bit of a pain if you want to lend the drive to someone else.

    Alternatively, use media centre. I've asked my missus to get me a hdx1000 [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] for Christmas, fingers crossed!

    I use Windows media Player 11 on Vista and it will stream HDWMV but I use wireless so it can be a very choppy. Works fine streaming XVIDS.
