Format USB HDD for Xbox 360 to watch your DivX/XviD Movies

Format USB HDD for Xbox 360 to watch your DivX/XviD Movies
Published by forahobby on Wednesday, December 05, 2007
Tagged: Hardware, Homebrew, Xbox 360,
With the most recent dashboard update Microsoft has included DivX and XviD .avi file support on the xbox 360 but most of us here on 360-HQ.Com have still been wondering what's the best way to store all our media.

Sure, we tested our DivX and XviD files from DVD/CDR and usb sticks but we are thinking more long term here. Well, why not format a External USB HDD.. :)

Anyway, thanks to some nifty software from the guys over at www.mediafour.com called "MacDrive" we have successfully been able to format a NTFS USB Harddrive which would not work or be found by the xbox 360 to the HFS+ format.

Since most USB HDD's on the market are formatted in FAT32/NTFS we have found that if you format these drives to the HFS+ format there is no longer a 4GB file size limit like FAT32. Once your usb HDD is formatted as HFS+ it can then be used on the XBOX 360 for viewing HD WMV, DIVX and XVID files of any size and can also hold your mp3 collection and images.

For those of you who are interested Ozzy and I (forahobby) have written a small tutorial to help you all get the most out of your Xbox 360.

Format Any External USB HDD for Xbox 360:

    This tutorial will explain how to format a External HDD drive into the HFS+ Format and enable it to be used on the XBOX 360 for viewing HD WMV, DivX, XviD, Mp3's and other supported content of any size. No longer is there a 4GB file size limit like FAT32.
