Hey guys,

I need to acquire a cheap 16GB USB to isolation test an issue with my Halo 4 copy for 360. I have the Game on Demand copy courtesy of a friend at 343i but it still has "Disk Unreadable" and "DLC cannot be loaded" errors. Therefore the logical next step is to install it to a USB flash drive and see if it has issues with my HDD.

I'm unemployed and poor as buggery right now, so price is very important.

Thanks for the reply but that website is absolutely horrible to navigate! also doesn't appear to be available online, they have no USB keys listed online.

I know it's probably wishing, but I was hoping to remain around the $10 mark. My intention was to see if anyone has some old promotional USB they don't care for.

Bond and Bond (in Hastings but may well be a National Boxing Day Deal) had USB 16Gb for $10.

Just be aware that at that end of the price range the speeds tend to be somewhat useless. All the fastish ones are usb3 now even tho not many actually need it.
