Don't know if this was mentioned already, so I apologize ahead of time. One of the new dashboard features includes USB Storage. The maximum capacity of USB memory devices has been updated to 32GB.

I understand not reading every single page, but it's not hard to read the page you're actually posting on. Not hard at all.

Anyway, it's great that they've increased the USB storage size limit. Wish we could get bigger hard drives too!

60GB of additional storage on top of the 320GB isn't a bad idea, though you're still looking at $40 for that additional 60GB.

1TB Scorpio Blue would be a nice addition in any sense. Works on the PS3, why shouldn't it work for the 360 as well?

Late night. Sorry about that.

No worries.

I just picked up a 32 GB Emtec from Office Depot for $12.99. I got the performance warning, and then started to install a game to it. It's taking forever, but when it finishes I'll play it and see how it performs.

Glad to hear that most of the performance issues deal with writing to the USB sticks and not so much in playing off of them.

UPDATE: Game seemed to perform just fine. I transferred a small game (Braid, 145MB) over to my flashdrive and it played the exact same as if it was playing from the hard drive.

I think I'm going to transfer over some of my bigger Games on Demand games I have but don't plan to play right away (Gunstringer, RE4, Bully, Dance Central 2), and free up 28 or so free gigs back on my Xbox harddrive. Happy with my USB drive so far. It's gonna take forever though, the write time is miserably slow.

Late to post but I've been using the 2 GB Forza Motorsport 3 Limited Edition (GameStop Exclusive) USB drive and it's given me the performance warning once out of the 3 or 4 times I've taken 360 storage off then back on the drive.

The compatibility test I guess is just checking the write/read speed of the usb to see if it's good.

Also, anyone has proved a usb 3.0 in the x360? I might. Soon. The write/read speed of a bad usb 3.0 flash drive when you plug it in a usb 2.0 is far fastest than a good usb 2.0 flash drive.

I've had two of these hooked up in my 360 Slim for many, many months without a single issue:

Thanks, so they work nicely then. Besides, Patriot supersonic is a very good pendrive, I've thought of something cheaper. More like one of these: http://www.amazon.co...s=adata usb 3.0

 

BTW, my reply window is empty (black), do I have to do something in order for it to appear? The only way I can post is by full window, and I can't quote.

 

edit: it seems it was ie9 fault. Forum works nicely with firefox.
