Xbox 360 USB memory question.

I see I can use USB sticks (I'm currently using a 16gb one on my xbox s) But I was wondering if I can use a USB External harddrive. I have a 500gb drive and if possible I would like to format it into 32GB Sections. Is this an option?

As long as the Xbox recognises your external hard drive then you can use it for Xbox storage.  However, regardless of it's size, you can only use 32GB of it's storage.  Making new partitions won't work as the console will only see the primary partition.

Yes but you can only use 16GB of storage space of any USB device. up to 2 devices can be used at a time giving a total storage of 32GB.

Even if your USB hard drive is 500GB you can still only use 16GB.

yup, 32 GB for each device (includes external drives) and you have to options: format total space for xbox (you will have 32 GB but cant use any more space of the disc for other purposes) or make only space for xbox, which will make the disc still being readable by computer for example - you will have one folder which name you may change and make another 32 GB for xbox but you won't be able to use first 32 GB with your console at the same time as xbox sees only the folder with the original name

I didn't know that. Thanks for letting us know. I have a 32GB mem stick that is only using 16GB for xbox. I will reformat it.
