Xbox360 Finally Supports USB Flash Memory

This has been a longtime coming.

Last week’s software update allows Xbox360 owners to use USB flash memory to store whatever they would like to view or use on your system.

There are a few things to keep in mind about it:

  • The cap is 16 gigs per USB flash device. So you can use a dedicated 16GB flash drive, or up to 16GB of a larger drive.
  • The minimum is 1GB.
  • You may use as many as you like.
  • You must format the drive or the partition you will be using for the Xbox360, so don’t expect to use one drive for your computer and console.

Formatting a USB drive on your Xbox360 is incredibly easy, just plug it into your console, and follow the instructions. It only takes about two minutes.

Official Xbox360 USB Drives

These official Xbox360 USB drives from SanDisk are horribly overpriced at $70.00 for 16GB, and $40.00 for 8GB. Don’t buy them, they are a total ripoff.

Shame on SanDisk.

Just get a good deal on any USB drive and format it yourself.
