    Tried to update from last fall dashboard to current dashboard. Only storage was a 1GB flash drive formatted as a memory unit. It downloaded, rebooted and gave this message:

    Code:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
    System Update Stopped 
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
    
    Can't read the update from your storage device. Please reinsert it to continue the update. 
    
    If the problem persists , visit www.xbox.com/support 
    
    
    
    Status Code:23EF-3151-B680-0700-C000-0034 
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Steps tried so far:
    -Reinserted the drive as it asked. Didn't work.
    -Downloaded the update to another flash drive and plugged in it. Didn't work.
    -Rebooted the Xbox with only the above flash drive in to try to update. Didn't work.
    -Copied the data files off the original flash drive to a new flash drive to try for better reading. Didn't work.
    -Booted the Xbox with out any drives or memory units. Didn't work.
    -Powered on the xbox while holding the sync button to try to clear update cache. Didn't work.

    Any suggestions would be great as this system is not under warranty.

    So I don't understand... is this error only appearing when you try and update? Or are you now stuck in limbo and every time you turn on the xbox you get this message?

    Hmmm... hate to say it but you seem to have exhausted most of your options... I would say it's pretty screwed up now.

    do you get one red light? you may just need to keep on trying to clear the system update.

    I can't do anything on the console because of this message. It won't even play the intro boot video.

    No red or green lights at all on the circle. Just the power light in the center. The green lights flash as normal if I press the sync button.

    I tried that twice, but I will try it a few more times when I get back to it later this week.

    Ok, I pulled the link off Microsofts Page (they had a newer dashboard update, SystemUpdate_12625_USB) and found out that when I tried the USB method before, I somehow pulled a file off the old support article. I had SystemUpdate_9199. I don't suppose an older update would work when I just tried to update it two days ago. I have hope that this new update will work.

    Do I put the folder on the root of the flash drive or the files inside the update folder? I figure it's folder, but never hurts to check.

    Ok, downloaded current update and put it on a flash drive along with another (new) flash drive acting as the Xbox MU. It finally took the update and it is now on the current dash with Kinect support and new theme/boot video etc.

    Thank you to all who helped in the process!

    Little kick...

    I have the same problem.
    Tried everything you tried.
    I have one question: you said: "Ok, downloaded current update and put it on a flash drive along with another (new) flash drive acting as the Xbox MU."

    What do you mean, you used 2 flash drives? I don't understand. How do you make a flash drive act as the Xbox 306 memory unit?
