    I was just curious if it is possible to have more than 2 mass storage devices connected to your xbox at the same time. For example would the xbox recognize all the drives in one of those multi bay enclosures (http://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-Drive-eSATA-External-Enclosure/dp/B002UAPHS8) ?

    In theory if you are using an external raid controller that you can program and have it standalone then potentially, but not more than 2 separate USB drives on top of your internal HDD. I believe i read about this somewhere in the past, and it was doable, but by having a switch soldered between the USB ports and effectively swapping them while the console is on.

    Id go for one HUGE external drive, and a 1 or 2tb 2.5" internal that has the 250/320gb Xbox HDD partition and a whole load of space for goodies :p

    Though it depends on what you want to do with your console...
