The Xbox 360 is a home gaming console that plays Xbox games, media and music. The console supports the use of USB flash drives, which allows you to transfer data from the Xbox hard drive to external storage, such as a PC hard drive. You can use this to back up your game data, transfer your game save data from one system to another or make room on your Xbox hard drive by moving data off the console.
