    So one of my friends needs to reinstall Leopard, but, the only external DVD drive I have is my 360 HDDVD drive. (their Optical drive went kapoot :nutkick:)

    I have read some saying it works as a drive, its just not able to read HDDVDs. But thats not a biggie to me. Just able to read as an external drive.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Thank for your help,

    it should work as a DVD drive, over USB.

    forgive me if we've entered the twilight zone, but since when does the 360 save anything to the HD-DVD drive?

    When I had an XBOX360 HDDVD addon I connected it to my PC and it worked fine (as a DVDROM and HDDVD player). But, I did need an update from MS and I was using Windows Vista.
