I want to play movies on my #TB External Hard Drive through the USB port on my Xbox 360. Will that work?
If so, do I need to re-format the hard drive to FAT32 before it will be recognized by the Xbox 360? Where do I find the formatter?
You will need to format the hard drive to FAT32 before the xbox will play anything from it. However, the FAT32 file system only supports volumes up to 2TB with a max file size of 4GB, so just keep that in mind.
I would recommend using EaseUS Partition Master to make a FAT32 partition on the hard drive for everything for the xbox, and an NTFS partition for the rest of your files you want to keep on there, especially if they are over 4GB.
