Hopefully that knows more about this format posts.
Let us know if you find a solution.
I recently got a 2TB Mybook premium edition II to put my few 500 gig encolsures worth of wmvhds on, and I formatted it to HFS+, then placed all of the data on it. However, when I connected it to the 360 it does not show up, yet my others do. It doesnt even show up when it is the only drive connected. Is it because the drive is too big? Are there size limitations? or is it because it is an enclosure that has (2) 1TB drives in it? Thanks in advance.

For an external Hard drive hooked up directly to the xbox 360 to work it does have to be fat32. you can however hook the external up to your computer, and stream it wired or wirelessly to the xbox 360. i do this with mine and even on large wmv-hd files it works great with little buffering. for it to read the external on the 360 you will first have to add a enableremoteaccesskey registry key to the windows media player under hme preferences. just do a google on enableremoteaccesskey and you should find it easily
wrong.... the xbox 360 supports HFS+ partitions which is commonly a partition type used by OS X. FAT32 of course has small size limitations and NTFS drivers dont exist for Xbox360.
The only reason why i think your 2tb mybook wouldn't work is like Strictpuppet said, the drive may be using a raid0 chip inside preventing it from working, or maybe JBOD either one.

ive got a 360 but no computer. my brother has a massive library of movies, music, etc. and i was looking at getting a larger external hdd (currently 320gb) to run my media library from.
is there any way to get a 360 to recognise a 2tb wd my book? can u change its so its not configured as raid or am i restricted to a 1tb single drive?
does anyone have anymore information on this?

Format to FAT32 with ONE partition and run the WD align tool to see if it fix your problem
make sure you have a file on the drive, and try access the drive (connected to the back usb) through freestyle or xexmenu
