USB won't stay configured to Xbox

I just baught an 8gb Lexar usb drive becuase my 250gb internal just failed and I'm waiting for my replacement from mircrosoft. I configured the usb drive to my Xbox so I can recover my gamertag. But everytime I go to recover it there is an update and the Xbox restarts itself. When it turns back on, my usb is no longer configured to my Xbox. So, I configure it again and the same thing happens everytime. Not to mention, this happened with a different usb drive that I replaced thinking it was bad. Does anyone have any ideas??

You have to use the official Xbox 360 flash drive in order for it to work properly. You can purchase that at Game Stop. I tried using one that was from a different company and I had to return it because it wouldn't work.
