Xbox cannot read external drive formatted as NTFS

Just recently I was trying out a media box and decided to plug in my usb drive into my son’s Xbox to see how it performed as a media player.

Guess what I discovered Xbox’s cannot read drives formatted as NTFS so I had to reformat it as FAT however Vista, or XP, cannot format drives over 32gig.

If you want to format a big drive as FAT I found the best tool to use was Fat32Format whcih you can download from download
