Buying Advice Needed Please


#1

Hello,

I am considering buying the My Book World Edition. I just need a little guidance.

I would like to store mainly films and some music on the drive, which I would then access through my xbox360.

The xbox360 has 3x USB2.0 and 1x Fast Ethernet connections, but the Ethernet port is currently used for connecting it to the internet (via a belkin gaming router).

So is the USB port on the World Edition capable of streaming media to the xbox360? Or is it just for daisy-chaining / storage expansion?

Regards,

James

Hmm… Think I just stumbled across the answer to my question here.

Basically, no, the USB port on the World Edition is not for connecting to anything other than further storage expansion.
