  1. USB storage stopped working


    I have profile and all saved games on a USB since I share my xbox 360 with another housemate. Today I tried to play, and my profile wouldnt come up.

    The xbox is not recognising the USB, and no data on there is accessible atm.

    Is there anything I can try to do to recover it, or have I lost all my data? -_-

    The USB is Toshiba 4GB that I have had no issues using it with the xbox in the past.

    :)

    Did you connect it to a PC to see if there are any files? If not, try that and see what files come up. If that doesn't work, it may be that your USB stick got corrupt. It sadly happens. Do you have a backup of files anywhere just in case?

    Also, did you try to use the drive on another console if possible?

    my xbox 360 S memory unit will not format

    It seems as if the built in Flash memory of the console became corrupted.

    Unfortunately, Microsoft stopped servicing the Xbox 360 console. So you probably can't get it repaired or replaced.

    You might try to plug an USB drive into your console to use that as an additional memory unit. Insert a USB flash drive or hard disk into any USB port, go to the settings, and under storage have the console set up the USB storage as a console storage device.

    If that works, you're good to go. If not, I'm afraid you'll have to get a new console.

    Usb storage isnt working

    Hey I have a Lexar 16GB and even though its properly configured and passed all tests. It shows up as unconfigured on the system startup. Unplugging and replugging makes it work again, even though its very annoying to do everytime.

    Check out my thread on this issue:

    Usb storage isnt working

    Have you been using the drive as 360 storage or to play media files from when plugged into the console?

    If the former, are you leaving it permanently plugged in to the console? Some have reported that in doing so the drive is not recognised. Try removing the drive, restarting the console and then putting it in again, it will then hopefully be recognised again.

    If the latter, have you recently formatted the drive to NTFS? The 360 only recognises FAT32 and HFS+, so you will need to go back to one of those in order to get the drive to be recognised again for media playback.
