I have had a 500GB external hard drive connected to my xbox for a while and I realized that the xbox is only using 32GB, so after figuring that that is all it will use from any device, I was wondering if I were to add extra 32GB partitions to the drive would I be able to get the xbox to recognize them as different devices and thereby use more of the hard drive?

The Xbox 360 will recognize two USB devices and one 32 GB partition per device.

That seems like a bold claim, do you have a source for this information? – RhysW Aug 27 '13 at 15:49
@RhysW Best I can find for them is this But speaking from experience, there is no supported way to partition a single drive multiple times that I've seen. – Doozer Blake Sep 26 '13 at 0:20
