I have been having trouble connecting my external hard drive to my xbox, I have formatted it to FAT32 but the xbox still won't recognise it. Is there any solution to this or is my hard drive just pants?
Thanx for any help

i thought fat32 was only used on PS3. Doesn't xbox use NTFS?

They both use FAT32. It could be the size of your external. The Xbox 360 only supports 16 GB per USB slot. I believe you can get around this limitation by partitioning your hard drive but that goes into unfamiliar territory for me. Try a USB drive that is 16 GB and below and see if it is a problem with your hard drive or 360.
