    Does it make any difference for an external hard drive? I feel like 360 isn't reading my 1TB external because it's journaled.

    A journaling file system is a file system that logs changes to a journal (usually a circular log in a dedicated area) before committing them to the main file system. Such file systems are less likely to become corrupted in the event of power failure or system crash.

    oh. i guess i want to keep it journaled then. 360 compatibility is a bit of a moot point.

    I can always stream from my external using Connect360

    Thanks

    If you mean xbox 360 then, the xbox 360 can only read a fat 32 external drive for you pictures, music, and vidoes.

    Hey Orange SVT Guy!!

    I just Bought a ibook g4 and I would really love to dye it black but I am not sure how to do it... I know it is kind of your thing to do it and I plan on doing either way but I would really really like some help from you because you seem to be very good at it. Thank you either way! :)
