Using An External Hard Drive With Modded Xbox
Posted 20 June 2005 - 09:59 AM
what i want to know is, is it possible to hook up one of those external hard drives to the xbox? i checked online and most of them have either firewire ports or usb 1.0/2.0 connections. if i used a usb dongle on the xbox would it somehow detect the hard drive?
i also searched and there are some external hard drives that have ethernet ports. now if i used a crossover cable and connected this to the xbox network port, would it be detected by say xbox media centre and thus could i stream for it?
i much rather have an external hard drive as i could leave the xbox say at one house, go to my other house with a fast internet connection, download onto the external hard drive and then when i came back to the xbox, i could just plug it in and pwn.
thanks in advance

hmm ah if i do that tho then it seems that i wont be able to get my xbox online, which is a bummer.
damn looks like a 250gig internal hard drive is the only way to go...
just out of interest tho, i heard that my saved games on my original hard drive wont work if i copy them over to a 250gig hard drive.
now i have some saved games of gta:sa which i really dont wanna lose!!!
can anyone shed some light on this as the saved game issue is the only reason why i am reluctant to upgrade to a bigger hdd!
