I'm trying to get the most out my HDD. I want to partition this drive to 32GB partitions so I can use it for my xbox 360.

    Is there a question?

    Yes it is a question. Trying to see if it's possible to do it. And on mac os.

    Yes, but what is your question? Can you partition a 750GB into a 32GB? Yes, but how is that maximizing the space?

    Did you mean, can you make 23 x 32GB partitions for your Xbox? No, I don't think so.

    Sorry I didn't get my point across. I was just curious if it has been done

    I'm not trying to be an ass here, but you should really read this: http://www.catb.org/esr/faqs/smart-questions.html#explicit

    Knowing how to ask questions effectively is extremely helpful and saves everyone involved a lot of exasperation and frustration. It also enhances the likelihood that people will take the time to help you.

    Yes, you can partition a 750gig HDD to 32gig drive, but why would you want to? I think that is really what we are trying to figure out here. You will still physically have a 750gig hard drive, can Xbox only read from a 32gig partition?

    I did ask my question effectively partitions mean more than one. End of line :-)

    everybody knows that you can format: any thumb drive or hard drive in the xbox360 at a max of 32gb of storage. Partition the drive in multiple segments in order to be recognized as more than just one storage device. I did this once but I have since forgotten how.

    Literally the very first search result, using the terms "format hard drive xbox 360 mac". You also literally never asked a question, which prompted ardi's response. You made a series of statements and left the reader to infer the question, which was somewhat clear to me but I've had years of reading past client requests :/

    I'm impressed by your correct usage of "literally." ^5.
