    Question WD Passport 500GB

    How do I get the 360 to see the content of this drive, only have 2 formatting options through Vista, NTFS and xFAT.

    Don't I need it to be FAT32?

    Cheers all

    Assuming you want it for movies, its HFS+ I seem to recall.

    Yes - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] should do it for fat32 (4gig file limit)
    or
    look at macdrive for HFS+ (larger than 4gig files)

    It's crazy that a microsoft product doesn't support NTFS.

    I always wondered if it was because of extra things like security and journaling were some of the reasons the Xbox doesn't support NTFS as it would be much more likely to bugger up if a kid just went and cut off power half way through it performing a write to the disk?

    To be fair, doesn't take much to kill an xbox, playing games on it does the job quite well.
