    I have just received a 2TB as an external for my RGH. - I see online it says to format as FAT32.

    Is there any difference with, getting the xbox 360 to format it over using FAT32. I know the 4GB file limitation on FAT32. But is there anything else?

    What are the best methods for externals?

    Thanks

    360 can't read NTFS, unless some update brought NTFS support which I doubt but there's nothing else otherwise.

    Pretty sure the 360 can format it fine.

    To format as fat32 I’d just use minitool partition wizard free if you’re using windows.

    I just formatted with the 360 - I normally FTP stuff over from my NAS anyway so this will work great. - Thanks for reply.

    My ext HDD is a NTFS formatted backup hub 8TB, I had posted 6 but it’s 8 and it works for my 360. I was told to try ext4 but it didn’t work for my setup. I have no idea about rgh ext drive, I know there was an update to the 360 recently that bumped up to 2TB per usb for a total max 4TB memory. I don’t know if that is the ceiling because I only had 2TB of games in the game folder although I probably had 3.5 TB of information total, till drive got dropped. . Now I have to start over again. I not even know where to find games anymore.

    Yeh, formatted as FAT32.
    Users csn install games to them from the DVD drive.

    Only thing a RGH differs from a normal 360 is the lack of signature checks.
