I have got a Mac Mini Intel Core Solo 1.5GHz running OS X Leopard 10.5.2. I formatted an external Maxtor 320GB usb HDD to read on an Xbox 360 using "Disk Utility" under the "Utilties" under "Appliactions".
The settings were:
.select partition tab under the usb hdd
.select '1 Partition' under volume scheme
.give it a meaningful name like 'media'
.under format menu select 'Mac OS Extended'
.under options button select 'Apple Partition Map'
Now copy some media to test on the xbox 360.
all should work.
This is not to go against the excellent guides done by the Windows guys. BOTH METHODS WORK WELL.
Welcome to the site subarudog hope your finding everything ok on the site and if you have any questions feel free to ask!
And yeah the external hard drive with the Mac OS Extended Partition is great. I bought macdrive and did it on windows. Boy I would never go back, Its so much easier then streaming and I can take it with me wherever I go _________________________________________________________
