Strangely enough the USB 2.0 sticks I've had most success with are Sandisk (Cruzers of various age and manufacturer location). Out of three one 2GB refused to work at all but the other two, a 2GB and 4GB are quite useable.
They're not perfect though, they sometimes go missing and particularly hate Xbox folders with lots of small files. I get regular failed copy error messages with those and you often have to reboot the whole Xbox to get it to detect the stick again. But once on the Xbox HDD in all the years I've been using them I've had only one failed copy incident copying to either of those drives.
But now I use FTP for virtually everything on my two main Xboxes so the flash drives are used for Xbox softmod stuff backups but mostly just as simple game save memory cards. Still it is a very useful safety net to have them as backup and I recommend you keep your working ones exclusively for Xbox use.
Yeah the working sandisk will be stored away and just used for the xbox when needed. Im all soft modded up now and have got xbmc as my dash. Next step is to upgrade the hdd but will be doing that next week. For now im just going to install a couple of emulators with a handful of games to tide me over.
