    Is there any way to play ripped hd-dvds on my XBOX 360. I have the Elite 360 with the 120Gig HDD. I could fit a few on there if possible.

    as far as I'm aware you can't play them from the internal drive. You can put them onto DVD's and play from those apparently

    Rip them to your PC, then use a DVI-HDMI cable to play them back on your HDTV. Plus you can hold more movies on your PC then you could on your 360.

    I was looking to use my 360 as a way to take HD-DVD movies with me on trips or to a friends house without bring discs.

    You could try an external hard drive. rip them to there. that way you could bring it with you.

    You cant play the HD-DVD files but you can use it for other file playback.

    The internal drive wont play HD DVDs on standard DVDs (mine dont) but will from the HD DVD Drive (mine does)

    You cannot do this the 360 only supports fat32 filesystem that is restricted to 4GB< since the EVO files alone are >8GB this is not feasable

    the best way you can do this is to convert them to WMV-HD

    For xbox 360 play back

    Format your external hard drive to hfs+ by using MacDrive 7 (and higher versions). You can store unlimited file sizes. Yes, the files wmv, wmv(hd), wma, etc. I watch wmvHD movies everyday. Fish around for em on and


    I havent figured out how to play back evo files from the external yet but there has to be a way.
