    Format it as FAT32, connect it to the 360 via USB (I presume you have a enclosure for that?) then if you look under memory in the system settings it should show up as an unformatted drive.

    it wont give me the option to format it to fat32 it only give me ntfs or exfat. It will only let me format it if it has 32GB on it. but I want to use the whole thing.
