Microsoft Xbox consoles are manufactured with a hard drive inside the machine for game data storage. User profiles, saved games, and other user data are stored on this internal hard drive, which can be accessed easily using the Xbox's built-in main menu. Other user data, like picture files, can be copied from the Xbox to a USB storage device using the Xbox's built-in operating system, called the "Dashboard."

  3. 3

    Turn off the Xbox console and remove your USB stick or Xbox memory card from the front of the machine after your photos have copied successfully to the memory device. Your picture files will have copied successfully to the memory device; you will now be able to view them on machines other than your Xbox.

Tips and warnings

  • Double-check the available memory on your USB memory stick or Xbox memory card before attempting to copy files. You will have to create free space on your memory device if your photos cannot copy all at once.
