Why do you want that? Yours is XBOX Arcade? For saving games, internal memory also enough rite?

after updating to 9199 ot upper dash, there is a support of xternal memory.
u need a BIG pendrive , so maybe u can use some HDD.
its plug n play, only on 9199 ot beyond

plug ur drive to usb port, then in system setting, configure the drive
for xbox's use. u also can choose how much space u want to use.
let say u have 60 gb, and want to use the xtra 10 gb for storage,
u can do so.

Just wonder...the speed of running from external USB hd or thumbdrive doesn't really differs much from DVD right? Or do you have a JTAG XBOX, so no need to put in disc to play?

DVD is much slower because it need spin DVD...
if in Thumbdrive is chip no need spin any thing...
if in Hardisk even need spin but the RPM and transfer data rate is more then DVD

Actually, that is not really true.

1) Most thumbdrive are not very fast. Unless you buy the highend expensive ones. In fact, some can be downright slow.

2) Your external hard disk is hampered by the USB 2.0 interface...max 480MBps...theorotical, pratical speed is a lot slower. That's why when u copy stuff with USB hard disk and e-SATA interface. e-SATA is way faster. The hard disks are bottlenecked by the USB 2.0 interface.

In reality, it's not even half of 480Mbps...but it'll save some wear and tear on the DVD drive...even my internal hard disk compared with DVD ...not really a lot of difference. Only certain games load faster. I imagine it is negligible with an external hard dosk.

Basically to my understanding games that installed in hdd will run smoother and slight faster. However the main reason to installed games into the hdd is in order to protect your drive lenses which will prolong it's lifespan. Imagine all the hard works by our drive to search and load the datas from the pirated disk which comes in various types of qualities straining it's capabilities over period of time.
