  1. 8GB Flash Drive showing no available memory after formatting to Xbox 360


    So, I bought an 8GB Lexar Flash Drive strictly for transferring movies from my desktop, to watch on my 360. Immediately formatted it to the 360, but when plugging it in to my desktop, It is showing that I only have a couple of 6.21 MB of available space
    out of 7.46GB. Anyone know how I can fix this? Thanks.

    :)

    Xbox 360 not detecting usb flash memory

    I have the 4gb slim xbox 360. I need at least 8gb of memory to play Halo 4 multiplayer. I formatted my flash drive to FAT32 using window 7 and inserted it in the console. The usb drive is not even showing up on the storage device list. I purchase a sandisk
    usb flash drive. Any help or insight is appreciated.

    8GB Flash Drive showing no available memory after formatting to Xbox 360

    If you were going to keep movies on the flash drive and not move them to your 360, then you didn't need to Format the flash drive. The partition that the 360 makes is unusable by any thing other than an Xbox 360.

    Question on Flash Drives

    When you plug in the flash drive, it is going to ask you to format it though. Once you format it to the Xbox360 format, you can not use it with a computer, but you dont have to format the whole flash drive. I have an 8gb flash drive, but I only have 1gb
    of it set up as Xbox360 memory. Sorry if this all confuses you, but once you plug in the flash drive, it will ask. Good luck and happy gaming!

    USB Device

    Can anyone advise what's going wrong I have 2 flash drives only 8gb I have formatted to FAT32 but when I put it in the xbox 360 I don't have the option to configure on any of the 2 flash drives in system - memory.

    The Xbox is on live so I would think it's up to date with all it's updates.

    Thanks for the help

    USB Drive & PC

    [quote user="trickybuz93"]If I use that option, does it un-format the USB Drive so it works with the PC again?[/quote]It removes the USB Memory Unit. The flash drive is already formatted FAT32 for use with a PC. The 360's MU usually takes up all the available
    space, though if you have a 32GB or larger flash drive you'll see available space on the drive if you plug it into a PC.



    If you don't care about the USB Memory Unit, just format the drive on a PC.

    1GB Update??

    [quote user="Archst3r"]

    I got an official xbox 20GB flash drive of amazon for my 20 gig xbox pretty cheap and i just leave it in for extra memory,works fine.When you get the 20gig 360 about 6 or 7 gig is taken straight away before you even start,so the flash more than doubles
    your memory.

    I thought th xbox could only access a maximum of 16gb via a flash drive? I cant remember where i heard that so it may be wrong :p

    [/quote]

    It is only 16gb. The only official flash drives for the xbox is made by SanDisk and comes in 8gb or 16gb flavors. In my opinion, it's not worth it. Just buy a cheap 8gb for $5 and you can format it on your xbox.
