What are some uses for old xbox 360 HDD hard drives? Can it be an external hard drive for a pc? Answered

Can you use an old Xbox 360 20GB hard drive on a PC as an external hard drive for back-up or  just to store files, like a flash drive?

Yep, it will probably need to be formatted though. Just get a 3.5 (or 2.5, depending on the physical size of the drive, IDK what they use in Xbox) inch sata to usb adapter, and you are pretty much ready to go. Or just look at the related bar on the right. The first option looks like what you need.

Though 20GB probably wont get you far in terms of storage space, a film takes roughly 1.5gb...
