Xbox 360 Hard Drive Reformat and ...

h8b1llg8tsh8b1llg8ts Registered User regular
I just recently bought a used Halo 3 Edition Xbox 360 and the previous owners information was on it. So I reformatted the hard drive and it now shows only 13.9GB available for the hard drive for a 20GB hard drive.

Also, my original 360 was a day one release so I have always been using the Mad Cats HDMI kit. So with the HDMI now available it seems I can not run both HDMI and the digital audio output because the Xbox AV cord is to large and won't allow me to run both.

Suggestions would be really helpful.

    About 6GB or so of 360 HDD's is usually reserved for system caching and patch storage etc.

    No idea on your second question since I still use VGA.

    Ok thanx. I knew it would use some memory for the system but 6GB seemed like quite a bit ...

    To use HDMI and the toslink connector for audio you need the dongle seen here.

    No clue if you can buy it separately. Mine came with my Elite way back when.

    Two gigs of the memory on the Xbox 360's HDD is used for original Xbox game emulation, and the remaining memory is used for caching, game updates, and the Dashboard/OS.
