A Couple Questions

The first question, is there an option to safely remove a flash drive any more? If this is not the case why would they still have a "remove" option? It seems this lack of clarification would cause many users to inadvertently erase a lot of hard work. An extremely costly oversight, not on our part since these devices should be user friendly. (AKA idiot proof) The second question, why am I only able to view one "flash" video using the browser? For example, watch a youtube video, then move onto another but it never loads. Why?

Not sure about that problem, i think it is a bug in the youtube app. Have you tried to clear your cache memory?

By browser you mean Internet Explorer?  If so, you can't watch flash content at all, its not supported, only html5, which I believe YouTube supports.  And best way to safely remove a usb device is to shut off your console.

Does your usb drive have a flashing light on it?

I always finish my copying/backing up, back out to the main dash and then wait for the red light on the USB to stop flashing. Then I remove it.

I agree with Killswitch, after moving my files and back-ups, I always shut down the console and then remove the USB storage. Never had a single issue.

I've never had an issue and I use small keychain flash drives and external HD.  I don't want stuff fluttering my xbox hd that I don't frequently use...  I've never had a problem.  The safe remove option is more for when your inserting and removing flash drives while power is on like pc and laptops.

Well just for clarification, I was using the IE app, not YouTube. I have been attempting to watch videos on Ted.com but have only ever been able to watch one video every couple of days. If there were just a Ted app like all other forms of media I wouldn't have an issue. Any ideas how to get it to work more smooth? Also, we can forget about the USB thing, it was more of a statement slash complaint.

The IE app can't play flash based videos. That's likely your issue, as many sites still use that format.

Not helping... if this site uses flash video then why can I view even one video? if it uses a program other than flash, why is this an issue. someone with this experience needs to comment and help me out. please keep the info relevant and use deduction to formulate a proper response

I'm sorry, if facts aren't good enough for you, that's your choice.

Why you can watch one video is unknown.

.

FACT: The IE app on the Xbox DOES NOT support flash. To watch videos, you need to find sites with videos supported in html5 format, or that have mobile versions of the site.

.

There is no other work around on this. If you really wish to use a specific site, you need to plead with that site for them to change their formats.
