I need to return my xbox to costco but I would like to keep my saves from Fable 2 on my profile. I would rather not pay $40 or however much the M$ 360 Memory cards cost now just to keep a save from Fable 2 and Fallout 3 for when I get a new 360. I have a 1GB USB thuumb drive I got for free and am wondering if i can use that in place of the Memory card. Or is there some other means I can use to keep the saves from those games and put them onto my new 360?

unno, plug it into the xbox and see if it works.

Oh yeah I forgot to mention that I moved away for school and the thumb drive is 2 1/2 hours away at my parents house... So, if anyone has any firsthand experience with this please help me out.

Im saving it on the 20GB harddrive. But I will need my harddrive with the xbox when I return my 360.

Why not just keep the easily detachable hard-drive? :?

sorry man, you'll need to buy the mem card. usb sticks only work for having media on them and reading it only.

it's either that or try and ask costco if you can keep the hard drive and swap it with the new one they replace it with since you have a lot of saved games on it.

Yeah I scoured google for more info. If i can find a place that has used memory cards then i will buy one. Or I can just lose everything in Fable 2 and start all over, but by the time I return my 360 I will have played Fallout 3 a lot by then. Maybe one of my friends has one. Or... I go into BB or Target and buy one, use it for that day, and then return it getting all my money back.

you shouldnt need to return your HDD when you return your xbox... just detatch it and put it on your new xbox.

Hm, I was able to stick in my SD card using a USB adpter. I don't see why a flash thumb wouldn't work, that's silly.
