    A comparison between what the hard drive, external hard drive, and memory units can do

    I downloaded it this morning but have yet to try it. I didn't know this was in the update until I read the article.

    $35 for a 360-branded 8gb USB flash drive? Who's going to pay that when the 20gb hard drive is like $40?

    I'm wondering why there's so many limitations.

    From what I can tell, when you put a USB in it formats it in such a way that is only usable to the Xbox. For now at least. Since I formatted and copied a save over to a USB, plugged it into the computer and all it shows is a empty USB but still being full in terms of space used.

    Probably will get broke in like a month, maybe. x:

    The xbox 360 folder is just hidden lol. just set the file brower to show hidden files and it appears. than right click on folder, prop. uncheck hide files and read only. Unfortunely why u can than see the DAT files, there is currantly no way to read them.

    It's just all made up by Microsoft to sell they're over priced hard drives.

    With the chip installed, perhaps you could load ISO right from the usb?

    If i'm reading this right either M$ are being pricks or somebody's made a mistake. For some reason there's no cross next to "Music" on the table but I know for a fact that I can play music of my USB flash drive right now, also if you can play movies off a USB stick why not music? It makes no sense!

    It might have something to do with the ingame music feature. They'd have to update that as well.
