I'd like things such as backups (USB/ external hard drive would be awesome) and emulators to play on my phat xbox 360. Now, while I'd like this, nearly everything I've seen about it seems extremely difficult and nothing like the nintendo wii and it's simple LetterBomb method. I've seen videos saying that you can use a simple USB method, but I think they are full of sh*t and am not buying any of it.
Can anyone here tell me what the easiest method is for doing this? Also note that I'm not loaded and can't afford tons of things. I also have never done any soldering of any kind and have only taken my 360 apart once to clean the disc drive (which I do believe is a benq).
Any help on finding the easiest and cheapest method would be much appreciated. Thank you.
