I have one and loved it until it stopped working without warning. I will read the blogs next time before updating my xbox.
First thing I thought of is that it would probably only take a firmware update from Datel to remedy this. It seems they are currently working on an update. Screw you Microsoft! Make your accessories more comparable to these third party options and you wouldn't have this problem.
Datel Informed me to mail in my max memory card and they will mail it back to me when they fix this problem. They have been very responsive through email. they are aware of the problem and are working on a hardware fix. (Sorry, no user-end firmware fix, i asked them) I encourage you to contact Datel through email. they allowed me to send mine in to them without a receipt.
Now with the xbox update that allows you to use a thumb drive, there is no need to use things like this. Who doesn't have a bunch of 2gig sticks laying around these days?
AMAZON you should remove ALL 3rd party memory units for the xbox 360 and save yourself and your customers a headache.
Don't use unauthorized Xbox 360 Storage Devices
When Preview Program members start receiving the Xbox 360 system update next week, one of the changes is that unauthorized Memory Units will no longer work with the Xbox 360. If you've moved your profile or saved games onto one to "back it up," you'd better move it back onto an authorized Xbox 360 storage device prior to taking the update. If you continue to use an unauthorized Memory Unit after the update, you will not be able to access your stored profile or saved games.
If you need help identifying officially licensed Xbox 360 storage devices or accessories you can read more about the licensed accessories program on [...]
So save your cash!!!
However, the fall update to the Xbox 360 dashboard has locked out the memory card from being used. Although I have not contacted DAtel personally (as another reviewer has), they have posted a letter saying they are working on an updated card that will bypass the lockout, and current owners will be able to exchange this card for one of those. The letter reads in part:
"...Datel are aware of the changes that are required to remedy this problem and will shortly release a solution in readiness for this potential update. This will be made available to you and your retail / domestic customers shortly. In the meantime if you are holding any stock of this product you can, if you wish, return this to us and we will exchange / replace with new updated versions in readiness for the Microsoft Dashboard release.
These high capacity memory units were released in May 2009 and have continued to function well to date. These potential problems are entirely due to the actions of Microsoft and are beyond our control..."
Also, Datel launched a lawsuit around Thanksgiving against Microsoft claiming it is limiting consumer choice. If you search online you can find the filing fairly easily (unfortunately, the link will not translate correctly into an Amazon review, so I can't post it here).
As good a buy as this was at the time, avoid getting this memory card until there's a resolution to this mess.Read more ›

It wouldn't be fair to say this of all 2-g memory cards for the Xbox 360, but this product is quite faulty. Didn't even acknowledge it on my Xbox. Read morePublished on June 8, 2011 by Cory K. Crawford
