    I take an empty flash drive and copy the system update folder onto it. I insert the flash drive into the Xbox and turn the power off and then back on. My flash drive lights up but nothing happens.

    I have also tried burning the system update folder onto a CD (as a data disk). I put the disc into the 360 turn the power off then turn it back on. Unfortunately, nothing happens. Should I be burning the file to the disc as an image?

    Also on the 360 website it talks about pushing the reset button. I bought my 360 you sometime ago and have hardly played with it. Is the reset button the black one in

    put your flash drive into the xbox 360....go to settings...memory and storage... and let the xbox format your flash drive...then stick it in your computer and download the latest update from xbox.com and put the $systemupdate folder on the root on your flash drive...plug back in and either it will restart the system and start the update or just turn off your system and turn back on with flash in the WHOLE time and it will start automatically.

    When I went under the storage menu on the Xbox it said no storage devices available.
    I have lost my other flash drive. Can anyone think of why this could happen? I will try updating with another flash drive and see what happens.
