Computer as USB Drive

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, i am a pc gamer with an xbox for occasional use, i bought the cheapest xbox and it only has like 450gb, i know i can buy an external drive but as money is tight as of the moment i was wondering if there was any way to partition off part of my 2tb computer HDD as a usb drive for my xbox then i would plug the xbox into the pc.

No because the PC and xbox are both host devices.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Not really. (at least not easily)

Maybe you could do something with network storage?

If this was between two PCs, it would be as simple as a network share, but I'm not aware of any way you could make this work with an xbox

Besides the drive part of the issue, would Xbox even be able to connect to PC via USB? In other words, would Xbox even see PC as connected device and visa-versa (probably not).
