    hi , its easy to do, first off you need a 30 gb external hard drive, or if u have a bigger one then u will need to convert it from ntfs to fat 32, which isnt easy, and the transfer rate is slower so it will take longer to put videos and music and so on on it.

    Once u have a 30gb hard drive in ntfs or a larger one with fat32 filing system u need to convert u r dvd, u will need software called win avi 7.7. All you need to do is select wmv, in win avi 7.7, click vrowse and select the dvd go into the dvd video ts folder and select all the files and hit convert, once done u will have a wmv file which u put on the external drive and wola, it should play on the 360, the resolution might be crap but just click advanced before u convert and change the settings.

    You can't use NTFS with a FAT32 file system. If it's NTFS then the NT File System is in use. You can make a FAT32 partiton on the NTFS drive, but it is read as a seperate drive.

    I guess I'm on the trip of bring absolutely correct Bro. As I stated perviously in a different topic on this SAME shit, I said NT/2000/XP/VISTA CAN NOT NATIVELY create a partition over 32GB for FAT32. You MUST use a program such as Partiton Magic in order to format a FAT32 drive larger than 32 GB with THESE operating systems.

    Please check your facts before calling me out. It may say "Newbie" but trust me, I'm not.

    Edit - Just read my ealier post where I thought you said Have a NTFS drive with a FAT32 file system. I was staing that if it's NTFS, then it's NTFS unless you create a new partician with FAT32.

    stephen02 - I hope you are offering a trail copy of Partition Magic as distributing the retail copy is piracy.
