Please Read Description before watching/commenting :)

As of 2015 Microsoft made an updating doing away with the 32 GB limit :D you can now use any USB/HDD of any size and fully utilize it (Up To 2TB) (As Of 2016) It Stills Needs To Be FAT32.
You can do this on your 360 or watch my method :D
When you enter the partition size just enter:
20580 MB = Exact 20 GB Partition
154100 MB = Exact 150 GB Partition
256000 MB = Exact 250 GB Partition
512000 MB = Exact 500 GB Partition
768000 MB = Exact 750 GB Partition
1049000 MB = Exact 1 TB Partition
1572864 MB = Exact 1.5 TB Partition
2097152 MB = Exact 2 TB Partition

Thank you to Howard Bailey for bringing this to my attention :D Top Lad ;)

I initially made this video after wanting to install GTA V on my 360 and after watching a video on how to do it i thought i could make a more simple and streamlined version easier for people to understand ^^ and it turned out to be my most viewed video :) Thank you.

I Appreciate everyone who's viewed and liked my video and left a good comment and i'm glad i could have helped :)

How to make any hard drive / external hard drive work for your console :D

This is a little guide to help you, Hope it was useful :) please comment any problems you have or even just how it went for you :)

When making some of the hard drive for storage, make sure you press customise not configure :D

If when you configure your external hard drive with your Xbox you get a message saying that it doesn't meet whats recommended, Don't worry about it because i got that message to and The game i installed onto it ran perfectly :)

You can Do this and use your external for transferring and watching films and stuff, or you can customise it so some of it works with your Xbox as game storage :) you can make 10GB out of the 32GB for this, or you can make 2 hard drive like iv'e shown you, one for files and stuff, one for the Xbox to store games and stuff :)

If you install a game onto your hard drive, make sure when you run the game you select your old hard drive when you can, because that's where your saved games will be unless you move them.

Mine is like a updated / faster version :)

This will also make your hard drive compatible with a mac, But why you'd want to own one of those I really don't know :p

This also works for those of you installing GTA V :)
