Hi all this might seem like a weird question but my sister and her boyfriend are currently living out of home and feel they have no need for internet (this makes me sad but I digress). They'd like to play some media they have through their 360 via an external hard drive. I've been able to format an external to fat32 and the console recognizes the drive but can't play any of the files without an update (this thing is like 4 years old and hasn't been updated). The problem is the cables that run from the 360 to the TV also go through a false wall to keep all the cabling neat and it is apparently too much of a pain for them to pull it all out so I can take the 360 to my place and update it for them.
Is there any way that I can update the 360 via external storage like you can with the 360, my googling so far hasn't been very lucky at all. Failing that any other suggestions?
