i have seen online the xbox to usb dongle wire to use a usb dongle for storage. i have also seen a connector out that there allows you to take a ide hard drive and connect it to a usb port. could you use one of these with the usb to xbox wire to use the hdd as a memory card or even just a way to format the hdd to fatx?

the best you could hope for is a giant mem card, if you run linux you could use it as a regualr HD though

Why would you want to use a HDD for a mem card......................the xbox already saves shit to the HDD like a mem card.

same thing then, give him a gamesave exploit, its a heck of alot easier and faster than using the MS dash to copy save

and BTW theres no need to yell

you could also look into a USB memory stick, lexar jumprdrives pretty much all work and are probably cheaper than buying a USB enclosure for an HD

yeah, i believe it could work, just plug the HD into the USB enclosure and plug that into the xbox controller port and the MS dash should read it automatically and format it as a mem card
