Hi There,

When I try to format a USB stick using my console I keep getting an error stating it "failed the data loss test". Any ideas?

If it fails the test you are unable to format it to be used for 360 storage.

 

So while you can still use it with the 360 for the purpose of watching a movie or listening to some music, you will be unable to use it as a 360 memory device.

 

There is no way around that as far as I am aware.

Not all flash drives are created equal, they all have various degrees of performance with regards to access times and read/write speeds.  Just because it fails the test doesn't mean you can't use it though.

I have a USB flash drive that failed the test but I can still use it.

If you are worried about that message, you can try a different USB flash drive to see if it passes the test.
