Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade is an online marketplace that gives gamers access to a variety of downloadable video game titles. You can buy these titles using Microsoft points and then download them to the Xbox 360's internal hard disk. You can copy the games from the hard disk to a pen drive, or flash drive. This allows you to play the games on other Xbox 360s.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Insert the pen drive into an open USB port located behind the flip door on the front of the Xbox 360 console, then power on the console.

  2. 2

    Highlight the "System Settings" menu option in the "My Xbox" section of the Xbox dashboard, then press "A" on the game controller.

    Highlight "Menu" in the list of options, then press "A" on the game controller.

    Select the "Games" folder, then press "A."

  6. 6

    Highlight the XBLA game you want to copy onto the pen drive, then press "A."

  7. 7
