    Yes.

    It's really simple.

    Format the drive to FAT32.
    Make a folder called 360 games.
    Extract games with Xbox Image Browser to the folder called 360 games.

    Then point your scanpath in FSD to your external HDD to the folder 360 games.
    Set the scandepth to 1 or 2.


    Repeat for Xbox 1 games, XBLA and Homebrew.

    I see that you like shooters so I'm suggesting Black for xbox.
    Successor to Black is Bodycount (for 360)

    Both are neat games.

    Other then that.
    I don't know what your tastes are but if you name a few genres then I can point to a few games ;]

    My personal faves.
    Bioshock 1 and 2
    Eternal Sonata
    GTA4
    Halo series
    Lego series (their fun to play)
    G-Force (videogame)
    Red Dead Redemption
    (get Red Dead Revolver for Xbox)
    Also get DarkWatch for Xbox if you like western styled games.

    Eternal Sonata is an RPG.
    I hear Borderlands is also good.

    You could also play Brutal Legend
    Really neat game

    well I had borderlands.. Brutal legends? what's that on my slower than Sh*t computer out of the 4 I have so can you just give me a brief overview? Eternal sonata what's that like? Is that the RPG with music based gameplay? I think I owned that anyway I'm "purchasing" one now. Probably going to be Halo 3. Any good Arcades?

    Brutal Legend is a kind of adventure game with Jack Black.
    Eternal Sonata is a JRPG based on Chopin.

    As for Arcades.
    Minecraft.
    And pretty much anything you'd like ;p

    Sweet.

    It's the best Arcade game out there.

    I think you should just take a look at Xbox.com and browse through the gamelists.
    There's gotta be something,

    I'll give you a full tutorial on how to get FSD on your 360.

    However de link to download the XeXMenu Live CD is dead.
    So you'll have to get that from GBATemp's Filetrip


    Tutorial here

    If the 360 is loud as fuck then it's at 100% yes.
    One way to find out is to dump the NAND with 360 NAND flasher and open it in 360 flash dump tool.
