It works the same way any other USB storage works. You may allocate up to 16GB of space on a USB storage device to a Memory Unit. That's as much space as can be allocated to a USB MU at this time.


It will have all the limitations of a USB MU. It will not support original XBOX titles and it will not be recognized as a HDD for games like Halo: Reach that require a HDD for co-op play.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
