I checked to see if I could configure my USB drive for the Xbox so that it could hold Cbox files. But after I saw that it would delete all files, I cancelled.

But now my USB drive won't work on any computers. It always comes up with "Please insert a disk into removable disk (F:)."

I have tried changing it back to PC format by going to "Computer" -> File, clicking the icon of the drive and then going to "Format..". But it also comes up with "Insert disk".

This question came from our site for passionate videogamers on all platforms.

Looks like an unrecognized filesystem. Doesn't the XBOX have a format option? Perhaps you could use a GParted live CD to format it back to FAT or NTFS or whatever filesystem you had before. – Alex Apr 15 '13 at 23:47
What do you see when you open Disk Management? – Oliver Salzburg Apr 16 '13 at 0:20
Are you sure it's F:? Does the thumbdrive have any auto-run software on it, e.g. SanDisk SecureAccess? – ernie Apr 16 '13 at 0:28
