    How come my external hard drive could only hold around 12 games is it really that bad

    I struggled getting it to work but tried a new enclosure that solved that problem. Now as I was adding games from backup disks that I had, I came around to around 11 or 12 and it said there wasnt enough room left!
    When I look online at like ioffer, they sell theres that can hold up over 900 games! how can mine only be a small fraction of that? it doesnt make sense one bit!
    its an old HP drive

    How big is the drive?? Are you installing full dvd size games or scrubbed ones?

    im not sure how big the drive is, its from an older comp. And I'm not sure which, I own the games and added some using configureable USB loader off backups. Would that make a big difference in the amount it could hold?
    Im gunna look into how big the drive is

    Perhaps you should read the rules regarding piracy.

    Find out how big your drive is and then ask about it. This is the kind of information almost anyone would realize needs to be considered.

    Games after ripped are anywhere between 100mb and 8gb. So I guess you answered your own question.

    Yeah Thanks, Guess I gotta pick and choose my games carefully if i can only have that few.
    I'm just amazed how little it can hold compared to buying a new one for like $90 and being able to hold 900+
    Anyways thanks for the help!

    your not gonna ever have 900+ games..

    * If you cant pay 90 for a HDD you definitely cant afford 900 original games.. You smell like pirate..
