Well yesterday I tried for the first time to watch an AVI file in my XBOX 360 using a USB pen drive.
I have done streaming from my computer, used a DVD with the AVI (DviX) files and they all work ok, but via the USB stick I have never done it before.
I put the USB pen drive, it gets recognised, I can see the file of movie and just when I am about to play the movie it gave me an error saying "You need to connect to XBOX LIVE to get a required Media update" or something along those lines. Also it gave me an error message (when I get home I try to write this down and put it here)
So I connected my XBOX 360 to XBOX live and it was fine I was watching the movie with no problems.
The issue here is that I don't have internet on my bedroom so I basically plugged the XBOX to live in the living room got the update check that work and turn it off to watch the movie on my bedroom.
But to my surprise when I got to my bedroom and try to watch the movie (the XBOX is not connected to LIVE now) it game me the same error.
So it sounds like the only way to watch movies via USB stick is having your XBOX 360 plugged to the internet.
Has anybody had this problem ? How can I fix this? I thought the updates to the console will be installed in the console but this was not the case with this patch
Any ideas, can anybody help me?
