Microsoft's Xbox and Xbox 360 both contain internal hard drives used for storing music, movies, and game demos and saves. The main thing to consider when making your own Xbox hard drive is that they are similar to PC hard drives with one notable difference: Xbox hard drives are formatted with the FAT32 file system, while most modern drives are formatted with the NTFS file system. Formatting a hard drive with the FAT32 file system is quite simple with a Windows PC.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

Portable hard drivePC running Windows 98 or higher

Instructions

1 Use a USB cable to connect your PC and portable hard drive. The USB cable should come with your hard drive.

2 Click on the "My Computer" or "Computer" icon on your PC desktop and find the letter next to the name of your portable drive. Write this letter down--you will need it later.

3 Select the "Start" button on your desktop to open up the Start menu. Select "Run" or "Start Search" in this menu (depending on your version of Windows).

4 Type in "Cmd" in the window. This will open the command prompt.

5 Type the following into the command prompt: format /FS:FAT32 X: "X" represents the letter of your hard drive, which you recorded in Step 2. Wait as Windows formats your drive in FAT32.

6 Disconnect your hard drive from the PC after the format has completed and connect it to your Xbox with the USB cable. The console will accept your hard drive.

Tips and warnings

The PC will not format any drive with over 1 TB of total space. Additionally, only a large fraction of your hard drive space will be formatted.
