    You can try partitioning your External using disc management, then configure the half to the xbox.

    System settings --> memory then it should show up there and from the top of my head I think you press Y or click on it and there is a option for only formatting a certain amount. Also I think it has to be empty before you do this because it wipes it.

    Well, you can customize how much you want for your 360, since it's not M$ brand, 16gb is max ?
