I have used my flash drive with my current Xbox before and it worked fine, but now when I try and configure it to my xbox I get a pop up that say's "Can't Perform that action." What does this mean?

Hey TOG LaceUp,


Can you try to format your USB on your PC/notebook and then try again:

1. Insert drive into on of your USB ports on your computer.

2. Open Windows Explorer, go to Computer and locate your USB on the left pane.

3. Now right click your USB and click Format. Confirm the dialog box.

Note: if you have stored important data on your USB, please copy it from your USB to your PC Hard Drive before you format your USB.

4. Insert your usb in one of your USB ports  and try to configure it again.


Please let us know the result.

Met vriendelijke groet,

Rick N.,
