what does it say when you try and use it. if it just says it does not pass you can still use it.

all the sandisk ones i've got work, this includes the 16gb blade, 8gb contour, 8gb micro sd card (with card reader)

Thats rude to say when someone is trying to help.

Most usb sticks work on it just some arent as fast as they could be, then again dont be a sheep and automically believe that if it says it doesnt meet specifications for the Xbox that it will be slower than others.

I have a 2 gig sd card and card reader that works great, a 4 gig Pro Duo card that works with a card reader that works and it is as fast as normal.

If you just want your gamertag on the card why on earth would you want a fast and large one anyway? A gamertag is about 3 megabytes not 16 thousand megabytes!

well stating that all usb sticks work is not true. . And why would u not want 8-16gb atleast then its useful for other purposes unlike 2-4gb
