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:
  • https://www.360-hq.com/xbox-tutorials-60.html

    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.

    How to Unban your Xbox 360 from Xbox LIVE! *UPDATED*

    How to Unban your Xbox 360 from Xbox LIVE! *UPDATED*
    Published by: forahobby on Friday, November 28, 2008
    Tagged: Homebrew, Xbox 360, Xbox Live,

    A member named legueux from gx-mod.com forums has recently released detailed information and now a video to show how he has managed to unban his Xbox 360 Console on Xbox LIVE.

    It's not like everyone is going to be able unban their consoles just yet because you need the Xbox 360 CPU key (which can be found using the Hypervisor Exploit or Timing Attack to downgrade first). Many additional tools are also be needed to read the XBOX 360 NAND before you can flash the console with the new information and unban it.

    Here are the full list of steps took to unban a Xbox 360 on Xbox LIVE:
    • Downgrade banned 5787 PAL to 4532 NTSC U, updated again to 5787 via HD. Still banned.
    • Downgrade banned 5787 PAL to 1888 PAL, updated again to 5787 via HD. Still banned.
    • Patched original 1888 PAL dump with the last number of the Xbox 360 serial in the keyvault (location A0 to AB) changed. Still banned.
    • Patched original 1888 PAL dump with the all the numbers of the Xbox 360 serial in the keyvault changed. Still banned.
    • Replaced the full keyvault in his original 1888 PAL dump of the banned console with a keyvault of an unbanned console. Connected to LIVE OK, updated to latest kernel online OK, still connects fine to LIVE.


    The video linked below shows a banned console and how it'll has been unban and will re-connect to xbox LIVE again after he has flashed the console with the 1888 dump with patched keyvault of an unbanned console.

    Agent21KGB posted the first picture of the Xbox 360 error/crash screen on our forums.

    A bit similar to the original Xbox error screen, it asks to contact the Xbox Customer Support and gives an 'Error Number' to help identify the problem:

    "So I went to the local Wal-Mart and walk on the 360 display and was like well I'll see If I can get a better look at this deal since few people were in the place. I turned the corner and found the Contact Xbox support screen. The xbox was blinking red and claiming error 74."
