The Microsoft Xbox 360 allows players to use a USB flash drive to download saves and put video onto the system. Any flash drive will work because they all have the FAT32 format available. To format the flash drive, plug it into your Xbox 360 and allocate how much of the drive's memory you want to use to store information.
Things You'll Need
- Xbox 360
- USB flash drive
Connect the flash drive to one of the USB ports on the front of the Xbox 360.
Move to "My Xbox" and select "System Settings."
Select "Memory," then "USB Storage Device."
Press "Configure Now" to delete everything currently on the drive and format the drive for the system.
Select "Customize" to select how much memory you want to format. Move the slider bar to the desired amount you want to format. Click "Configure" when finished.
Tips & Warnings
- Large USB storage drives work on the Xbox 360 as well.
- Do not pull the drive out while it's configuring because the interruption may corrupt it.
