Is the external HDD connected to the XBox via USB or is it connected to a computer running Media Center/Media Extender?

So can I assume it's not working (possibly due to the partition format) based on your post? Or are you just asking if it's possible to media files directly from it? (Yes, it is.)

you're correct. picked up my xbox last night. plugged in my hdd today. i figured it was the wrong format. i know it's possible because we did it a few years ago on my roommate's xbox/hdd.

i would just reformat to fat32, but i don't have any place to temporarily store my 450-500 gigs of data. i was wondering if there was another way without reformatting since it would be really nice to keep my movies, pictures, music, etc.

Unfortunately if the format isn't correct then you'll need to move that stuff somewhere before doing so.

That said, you should really have a backup of all that stuff anyways!

stream it from the pc rather than hook it to the xbox. if you format it fat32 you cant have files larger than 4gb on a fat32 partition with can be limiting with large HD files or iso images.

i thought about partitioning my hdd but figured i shouldn't mess around with it without experience cuz i don't want to erase all my data.

Vcook - I tried streaming it wirelessly with my laptop... but it's a fuckin tablet and came with windows 7 STARTER. i can't set up a homegroup. this blows.

guess i'm SOL without having a backup of my files to reformat to fat32.
