I would still try it before getting a new drive. Strange things happen with electronics sometimes.

Is it configured to the Xbox 360? if not

back up those files on the computer (I assume you mean computer files) because when you configure it it will format the USB flash drive.

(ITs just to see if your Hard drive is defective right?

Follow this:

Format a USB flash drive
  1. Plug a USB flash drive into a USB port on the front of your console.
  2. Press the Guide button on your controller, go to Settings, and then select System Settings.
  3. Select Storage or Memory.
  4. Select USB Storage Device.
  1. Choose either Configure Now or Customize to format the USB flash drive for Xbox content.

Note If the USB flash drive doesn’t have at least 1 GB of space available, the options on this screen are not available. In this case, use a different USB flash drive.

Configure Now: Erases the USB flash drive and configures 32 GB for Xbox storage

  1. Select Configure Now and confirm that you want to erase all data on the USB flash drive.

Customize: Configures a portion of the USB flash drive (up to 32 GB)

  1. Select Customize.
  2. Move the Reserved Storage slider to select the amount of space you want for Xbox storage.

    Note 512 MB is reserved for system use.
  1. Select Configure.
  2. The console tests your USB flash drive to make sure it works correctly with the console. If your USB flash drive passes this test, you can use it.

    Note If the USB flash drive is rated below the recommended speed, you might experience reduced game performance and quality. To cancel and try another USB flash drive, select Cancel.

  3. Your USB flash drive is ready to use and is listed as a USB Storage Device.

Now you can use your USB flash drive like any other Xbox storage device. For information on how to copy and move content between storage devices, see Copy, move, or delete Xbox 360 content. You can only plug two USB flash drives into your Xbox 360 console at once.

Note Information stored by your Xbox 360 console on a USB flash drive can’t be viewed or accessed on a computer.

USB warnings and errors

I'm getting a "Performance Warning” message. What does this mean?

If your USB flash drive doesn't meet the USB minimum requirements, you may experience significant performance problems while playing games on the flash drive or saving content to the flash drive.

I'm getting a "Can't Configure" message. What does this mean?

Your USB storage device is not working correctly and can’t be used to store Xbox 360 content. Replace your USB storage device with one that meets the USB minimum requirements:

  • Minimum 1-GB storage capacity
  • Windows FAT32 file system format

    Note If the device was formatted in Windows using FAT16 or NTFS, you might be able to reformat it in Windows using FAT32. Macintosh and Linux formats do not work.

Hope this helps you.
