    Actually not all external usb media are supported by the Xbox 360, better way is do a media share with your pc and but all usb data on that media share.Its easier way to share. And may be you not converting the files to the right format or your xbox doesn't have the necessary update for that .

    Just plug the flash drive in and go to the media menu of the 360 dashboard and select the USB flash drive, what's your flash drive formatted to FAT32 or NTFS? Format it with FAT 32. And may be your USB drive is non compatible with Xbox 360. That should work as I was able to connect my old 80gb external Western Digital drive to it with no problems. and you should also try by updating the firmware. And for info the USB ports on the 360 are read only. Microsoft said so themselves. You can't write data to any device connected via USB.
