    You could also install some of your most played games on the HD, it supposedly cuts down on load times.

    You can get access to Netflix right? You can download movies onto the hard drive.

    I don't have an Xbox, but I heard its available for you guys now. I just don't know the details.

    I have it on the PS3.

    Guess you gotta be an Xbox Live GOLD member or something like that.

    You can actually download an entire game on your harddrive (Like MW2 for instance) then it will save on your disc drive and it will be quicker and less noisy. The only catch is if you want to play the game you need to insert the disc for it to boot up and work.

    I didn't know you could download movies from netflix onto the HD? I thought you could only stream..either way its essentially the same thing minus the fact that with streaming there is about 15 seconds of buffer time in the very beginning.

    As far as I know Netflix only streams. It isn't a download service.

    Most sites are used for streaming media content. The Xbox 360 also can be used as an extender if you use Windows Media Center.

    are you seriously asking this question? i though everyone knew that all hard drive space, regardless of the machine, was intended to be used solely for porn. hell, i didn't even know my xbox could play video games, i thought it was just a bate station.

    hmmm, i just tested your theory and you are very wrong. the CD tray wont retract if you have tried to cram too much bud in. so i tried putting less weed in the tray, and am now inhaling the smoke from the xbox but it smells kinda funny...
