  1. Does anyone know if it is possible to format a external hard drive for the xbox? I have an extra hard drive laying around and then i thought if u can format a flash drive to use on it, is it possible to do the same for the hd?

    No,you can't do that with an external HDD.You need a 2.5" WD BEVT 5400Rpm series and a special software to write the firmware on it,and is kind of complicated.If you want a bigger HDD buy an original xbox360 HDD :).....that is my opinion
