Only for a little amount of storage..not sure how much though.

16gb is the maxim I think I could be wrong though.

You are correct Sir.

You can use up to Two external storage devices with a max 16GB per device at a time. You can use Flash Drives, however higher performance drives are required (If you have a USB 3.0 stick, chances are it runs max USB 2.0 speeds when plugged into a USB 2.0 port, you should try that). As for using an external HDD, you will have to format it to the FAT file system unfortunately (Windows XP/Vista/7 use the NTFS system, you can still use the HDD with your computers, it's just that the NTFS system is better). When it comes to HDD performance, I don't understand the requirements. The Xbox 360 HDD is 5400rpm, I used an external 5400rpm drive and it told me the device may have performance issues, it might be the bottlenecking of the USB 2.0 connection.

I worship you.
