With the gaming console become more of a home entertainment center, it’s Iomega’s goal to provide the tools to enjoy photo’s, video, music and games without hassle.

The Media Xporter makes this a simple and easy process. The 160GB Iomega Media Xporter drive is power via USB 2.0 and will retail for $120.
