About to defenestrate my Xbox. I JUST WANT TO MOVE A DARN VIDEO FILE ONTO THE CONSOLE'S HARD DRIVE, WHY IS THIS SO DIFFICULT.
Info: Xbox 360S 250GB, 200+ GB available Flash drive: HFS+ formatted, 1GB capacity Computer: Mac w/Snow Leopard File: MP4 video, ~260MB
I have tried everything. First had flash drive formatted to FAT32 as per my brother's advice, and the Xbox responded only by demanding that I format the flash drive. When I did, all the crap that the Xbox dumped on there filled it to capacity, so I was unable to put my video file on for transfer.
Next formatted to HFS+ as per my friend's recommendation. Now the Xbox is telling me to make sure my device isn't write-protected. It is NOT, you idiot machine, because I JUST MOVED A FILE ONTO IT. (I also verified in Finder that all listed profiles are set to "Read + Write.")
Can anyone help me out here? Would be most grateful. Doing something as simple as moving a video file from a flash drive to the internal hard drive should not be this infuriating a task.
Make it FAT32, put the video file on the drive, then plug in the drive to your xbox, then go DIRECTLY to the video player. Do not go to system storage and format the drive.
You will be able to watch the video, assuming it's in a format the xbox even supports (remember there's an optional media update you can try downloading if need be), but NOT copy it to your hard drive.
