Microsoft's Xbox 360 home entertainment console allows users to play movies, music and Xbox 360-compatible video games, but to get the most from your console, like Xbox Live support, a hard drive is required.

Xbox 360 Units

As of 2010, the latest Xbox 360 consoles have an internal hard drive of either 4 GB or 250 GB depending on the model. These models come fully capable of performing all the duties featured by the older Xbox 360 models.

Xbox 360 External Hard Drives

Prior to the 2010 Xbox 360 models, older units required an external Xbox 360-brand hard drive if the user wanted to download content from the Xbox Live Marketplace, or rip music to the console. These hard drives vary in size from 20 GB to 250 GB and are compatible with all older Xbox 360 consoles.

Third-Party USB Hard Drives

As of April 6, 2010, a system update allows Xbox 360 consoles to use 16 GB of memory from third-party USB hard drives after a simple configuration process.
