How do I back up Xbox original saves from original Xbox to a usb flash drive?

I would like to know how do I transfer my saved data from my old Xbox original to a usb flash drive because I’m afraid one day it’ll stop functioning and then I won’t be able to continue finishing the games that I haven’t beat yet. Is this possible? I would greatly appreciate help with this. Thanks!

    The controller ports are actually USB ports, but Microsoft used a proprietary connector. You can build a cable yourself, or buy a premade one. Just search for Original Xbox USB adapter.

    I don't know if newer USB flash drives will work though. When I did this around 10 years ago, I used an 8 GB USB 2.0 flash drive.
