    Question Usb Drive Question

    i see that there is a 500gb limit to the Usb Drives, this the same for usb thumb drives?

    i was thinking of grabbing up 2 Cruzer 32GB USB Flash Drive or going with a 64gb flash drive. i would go with whats listed in the Compatibility List but i can't find half if barely any of them online to buy or i might go with a 320gb drive. "Playing the safe the Sorry Card"

    Any Light on this is very much Thanked ^.^

    The 500GB limit no longer applies. The recommended format is fat32 up to 2TB.

    Well I saw a Seagate 320 GB at officeworks for some price under $100 (sorry I can't remember)

    But I would just suggest buying a 1 TB (or at least 500 GB) as they are also cheap and offer better value for your money

    Sorry about not being able to give links

    But I hope I helped

    the thought is there, so i'm happy with you trying to help ^.^ but i'll stay away from anything 1TB and above. higher hard drives have a much higher Death Rate. i'll get something that's 100-320gbs in size, that would be Plenty for me ^.^

    Here's the link to the Seagate HDD I was talking about:

    Hi Itmiroku. I have used drives from 60,80,100,120,160,250,320,500gb portables and 1,1.5tb. You can check the guide as advised, However a good rule of thumb is spin speeds. 5400 < > 7200rpm. a 160 gb will hold approx 70 games in wbfs file type depending on complexity of game. some games are less than 500mb others are 4.37gb. When you choose your drive make sure you format it to remove any manufacturers spin down ( sleep mode ) settings.
    Then follow the format guide in my sig spoiler.
