    • 1). Open the USB external enclosure case. Depending on the model, the cover will either snap off, or will come apart after removing the screws that secure it in place. Inside the enclosure, there will be one cable, which contains the wires for both data and power. Plug that into the laptop drive, observing the plastic tabs in the cable that prevent it from being inserted in the wrong direction. If you encounter resistance, flip the cable and try again.

    • 2). Screw the laptop hard drive into place using the screws that were included with the enclosure. These will usually insert through holes in the rails located on either side of the drive. Once the drive is installed, replace the enclosure's cover, putting back any screws that were previously removed.

    • 3). Plug the enclosure's USB cable into the single USB port on the back of XBox. Though there are also USB controller ports on the front of the device, only the port on the back has been specifically designed for use with data drives. Turn the XBox 360 on, and it will automatically recognize the drive.
