IF YOU BOUGHT THE NEW MODEL XBOX WITH ONLY 4GB MEMORY THEN U NEED THIS MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE I HAVE THE ELITE WITH 120GB DRIVE THIS ITEM WORKS GREAT IF YOU NEED TO TRANSFER FILES OR JUST UPLOAD YOUR PROFILE OR GAMER INFO TO TAKE TO A BUDDIES XBOX CONSOLE. AT FIRST I SAID NO BECAUSE IT WAS 39.99 BUT NOW IT IS 29.99 WITH A MONTH OF XBOX LIVE SERVICE THATS MUCH BETTER, AND IT HAS A PRETTY GREEN LIGHTON IT, GET IT!
Rated 8 out of 10 by If your new to Live, Get this! Great for Live members!
This 8GB Flash Drive to me is much better than the 16GB one unless you have lots of music and your giving it to your friend. Easily bring your XBOX Live profile to your friends house so you can play with him! You can also bring Map packs. Like in Halo 3. The design is nice, its pocket sized too. Since it comes with a 1 Month Gold Card and your friend has Live i would completely reccomend this to a friend. It lasts a long time i have NEVER broke mine, or hurt it in any way. All I do is keep it in a safe area or in the USB Port. If you a careless person and leave it lying around something may happen. You can lose it very easily. So XBOX 360 newcomers who want Live I recommend you to get this product. It is SanDisk material so it is garunteed to work. All in all this product is completely worth what you pay for it!
Rated 1 out of 10 by reallyfrustrated Not good for anything.
Only wanted something so I could back up savegames after reading how others had their files corrupted. After buying this, I came to find that Microsoft, in their infinite ignorance, refuses to allow you to do that.
Is it good for anything else? No. I tried putting music on it. Won't take it.
So what does it do? If you really want to cut your files off your console's hard drive, for the sole purpose of temporarily going somewhere else with them, then you could theoretically continue playing your game on someone else's console with someone else's disc.
If you use this "transfer" feature, you basically wipe out your hard drive. Lose it, corrupt it, break it, and your game's gone forever. There is no copy function to speak of for anything.
It's not good for squat. Although you could delete the preformatted 360 memory, and still have a basic 6.9 (YES - 6.9 and not "eight") Gigabyte flash drive - the price for that is unacceptable. You can now buy 3 TERABYTES for under 100. And they want you to pay almost half the price for not even 1/1000 of the space?
The greatest rip off I have ever experienced in my life. The 360 ownership experience just gets worse and worse every time I turn around.
Rated 3 out of 10 by griz Why?
The new xbox360 slim (like the original), comes with its very own line of useless acessories. The Xbox 360 memory stick is proabably the worst. For the same price as this you can purchase a more reliable 16gb memory stick that is guarranteed not to fail. This memory stick is notorious for either corrupting data, breaking, or not reading. Why people buy this i'm not sure.(the only reason I have one is because it was a gift) Anyways if you need backup memory buy a different branded memory stick for cheaper and sync it to your xbox and you have exactly the same experience. To sync you must go to system setting, memory, then press Y and configure to xbox. Its really that easy.

Rated 3 out of 10 by rcblackbelt Glitchy?!?
I have this USB stick for my 360 slim and original 360 to transfer my profile back and forth between them.. and I have found that every so often my profile and/or the usb stick will become corrupted and I have to use the 360 profile recovery tool. This may be a problem with the software used to encrypt the files so they cannot be opened on a computer but it is tiresome to have to always recover my profile. Have tried 3 different brand USB sticks as well and same issue. I might just as well try the original memory card for this function and use the usb for movies and music....
Rated 3 out of 10 by Izze Not What I Expected
When I bought this product, I was under the impression that it hold 8GB worth of stuff on your XBOX. When I tried to put games, such as Modern Warfare 3 (7.49GB), on my xbox it would say my device was full. So I went to settings, storage, and looked at the flash drive, my xbox read that the max you can hold on the "8GB FLASH DRIVE" is 6.9GB. I was confused so I just left it alone. What I should have done was go back back to the store and get a refund or someting.
Rated 10 out of 10 by MissMir So much better than a transfer cable
This memory card has saved me from deleting my ex boyfriend's junk on his 360. Its so easy to move your information from one 360 into another I highly recommend and it lights up when its inserted into the system. Its good for when you want to save your game information into there instead of using up space in the hard drive. When you can use that for download games. Again highly recommend it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Baconman good for traveling/extra content download
good for putting your profile on for traveling. one thing that i found out is that in order to move DLC like extra maps and arcade games you have to select MOVE and not COPY. so if you loose your flash drive i think you may or may not loose your content so be careful out there! also kinda overpriced for 7 gigs, it says 8 but only 7 is avalable for storage
Rated 0 out of 10 by Xbox 360 Fanatic The New Memory Update
Xbox recently released an update that allows the user to use external memory to contribute to hard drive space. This can be used to store DLC or game data as well as videos or music. Any memory device will work as long it is a minimum of 1GB and no larger than 16GB. Up to 2 memory modules can be used at once to contribute to 16GB, but cannot exceed 16GB.
