please note that same vendor may change the internal ic in the usb stick a number of times during production.

this list is advisory only.

you should also also try erasing the usb stick in case it fails using the disk utility > erase.

Default Also worked

The Sandisk Cruzer 4GB memory stick worked perfectly for me the first try. The first thing I did was to format it with an HFS+ partition using Disk Utility. The Patchstick app updated it without any problems and the whole upgrade process with atv 2.2 unit went flawlessly.

I was having issues with a Sandisk Cruiser Micro 512MB so I went out and bought a PNY Attache 2GB which worked perfectly.
