You need to check that the thumb drive's partition is fat or fat32, if its NTFS you will need to format.

You may also be out of hard drive space if you're using a 4gb internal model Xbox 360. If you haven't already, find yourself a compatible USB thumb drive to insert, format and use as added memory.

How do you get to the start menu it says unable to download updates

You carn't, the update once started has to finish, If your system is only getting to the first stage and fails, you can try and download the latest update from and put it onto a 1gb Fat32 Usb stick, once the update is on the Usb stick simply place into the xbox and the xbox with automatically start updating. If this fails then talk to Xbox support at to find a solution. They might be an underlining problem from incorrect dvd/flash information, Hard drive failure ect.... the error code it gives you can tell you what ball park you need to be looking into.

Is there a way to recover a corrupted profile on xbox 36o that is NOT on xbox live?

Possibly, but not likely.
Here's something to try though. One of the updates that came out a year or so ago allows the use of USB sticks as memory cards. Not all, but most work.
Go to System, then Memory in the menus (not sure if that is exact). Plug the USB stick in and try to format it. If successful you can try to move the corrupted profile to the USB stick. If THAT works, try to sign in to that profile while it is on the USB stick. (this is a good way to take it with you)
If that doesn't work, I'm sorry, it is likely gone. One thing you should do either way is to at least sign up for the free xbox live silver. That way you can recover your profile from the cloud (achievements, not game saves) if you ever have problems again.

When i press start on the main menu it says (Loading settings "settings" from hard drive. Please do not turn off your xbox 360 console...) and it freezes, how can i fix this?

Ok I have seen this issue many times before , first unplug the console . Disconnect the power cable , a/v cable , controllers , any usb devices , & finally disconnect your hard drive . Now let the system sit for a few minutes , then plug in just the power , a/v cable , & a controller . You should be able to boot your Xbox 360 successfully now . At this point you can either connect your hard drive while the system is running or you can turn it off & connect it . This should fix the issue , if not you can attempt to clear the system cache in the Settings Menu or worst case download the latest update from Microsoft on your Computer , then follow the instructions & place it on a freshly formatted USB Memory Stick . Then place the USB Memory Stick in the 1st USB Port on the Xbox 360 & boot the console .

I connect hard drive but my xbox cant find it

Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

the drive is plug in play, disconnect the drive, then turn on the console. Plug in the drive, the console should restart and it should be found. if it restarts but the drive is not found then the drive is either faulty or it has been editted somehow and no longer contains what is required for it to work on xbox.

You may use USB memory stick as a hard drive / memory device, just update to the latest version of software and you can use any usb stick up to 16GB with the console. this will be cheaper than buying a new drive.

Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.

I can't load a USB stick on my 360 to save gamer profiles? Any idea why?

Only the latest XBox 360 system update supports the USB drive.

Do you have the latest update on your XBox 360?

Xbox 360 system will not reade any kind of storage format, like hard drive or flash drive in the usb slot.

If you have the Spring 2010 console update installed on your 360 console, you have to configure the USB device it before it is recognized by your Xbox 360 console. Connect your device, go to My Xbox menu, go to System Settings, then choose Memory. From here, select "USB Storage Device", and choose "Configure Now".
Your device will need at least 1GB free storage, and your console can use 16GB maximum of all attached USB storage devices total. Move the slider to configure the space to use & press the A button to set. Your USB device should be listed as a storage memory unit now!
