I have a My Book WD external drive that I am trying to hook up to the xbox. My problem is that the Xbox can't see the drive no matter what USB port I plug it into. The drive works for my computer and my mini USB portable drive works on the xbox. Why does the external HDD not work on the xbox?

Oh, and yes, it is plugged into a power outlet before some smartass brings that up.

i hope you're just trying to access pictures, music, or movies on the drive. i don't think you can save game data or profiles on the disk... pretty sure it's read-only.
