The Xbox 360 video game system, developed by Microsoft, allows you to play music files from any attached hard drive device. Typically, in order to create and save playlists on your Xbox 360 system, you would have to copy all desired music files from your computer to the Xbox 360's main hard drive device (HDD). Instead, copy your music and playlists to a portable USB hard drive device, giving you a portable solution to your Xbox 360 music needs.
