<rant>a usb hard drive would be a great solution for xbmp and the likes, you could easily swap between hard drives without having to do much hacking to the box. </rant>

11Mbit/s

Good luck, it's not fast. USB just aren't meant as a hdd-interface.

Would still work thou.

the USB2 is actually faster than firewire... soo yeah it'd be fast. Just doubt we'll see any hardward mods for USB2 anytime soon.

the slow speed wouldnt really matter though for media files, there's definatly enough bandwidth for that.

As far as i was aware the Xbox only has usb 1.1 support not 2 so you'd be stuck with 11mbit transfers. However that is still enough for audio streamiing if not descent video

I'm sure video would be no problem as seeing people use WiFi adapters with there xbox's all the time and streaming video works fine. (802.11b is 11mbit as well)

I use XBMp over my network and stream from the computer i'm typing on now. Unfortunetly the hub im connected to right now only allows 1024 KB/sec(1 megabyte a second)! But in using XBMP and accessing/playing files over the network I have noticed NO slowdowns or any issues like that. I even bypassed the hub to see if there was a difference and there was not!

I use a 10mbit hub (so I only get about 1024k/sec), XBMP works just fine. I've checked it out, and it seems like the stuff that I am streaming through relax is being sent to my xbox at about 200-300k/sec. So yea.
