    Hi Michaelhammond7, I hope you're doing great out there despite the issue that you're experiencing. I am an Independent advisor and I am here to help you in regards to your concern.

    I would like to clarify, is your console not detecting the storage device? If yes, you may need to check this link for troubleshooting steps:

    Where is the 2TB

    If a Flash drive is 32GB it's 32GB, you can't give it more storage space. The same way that a 'pint' glass holds 1 pint, it can't hold more.

    2TB is the maximum Storage an Xbox 360 supports. To get 2TB, you'll need a 2TB drive.

    Don't bother looking for cheap 1 or 2TB Flash drives, they're fake. There are real 2TB drives, but they cost $1500!

    All you need to buy is an external hdd. A 2TB external hard disk is about $80.

    Xbox 360 (original) data transfer cable to new Xbox 360

    May I point out that the Xbox 360 has supported external hard drives up to 2TB of storage since 2015. So, if you can't find a transfer cable, this is also an option. You can also use USB Flash storage. There used to be a limit, but this was removed in 2015.

    In need of additional storage

    Smwutches, that is the console that I have.

    While researching this it seemed like at one point only 16GB flash drives were compatible with the 360. And then it appears earlier this year MS had a firmware upgrade that allowed 2TB external drives such as the Western Digital referenced by Irixion to
    be used for additional storage? That is what I am trying to clarify as I have never had to use external storage on a console before.
