Your old 20 gig will work with your new xbox, the hard drives are compatable no matter how old the 360 is. You can transfer all the stuff but you will have to call xbox and get a transfer kit. Its an adapter so you can attach both hard drives to the same xbox and a disc that runs the program. call 18004MYXBOX and tell them you want one. They are free and you will get it in the mail in around a week.

How can i recover lost save game data from xbox live profile?


This used to be possible. Xbox used to offer this service but you could only do it twice a year or something like that. Now they don't do it anymore. The only way is if u had the old hardware and a USB stick or Transfer cable.

I got RROD and was wondering if there was any way to get the stuff I had saved from my old XBOX 360 to my new XBOX 360?


yes there is a data transfer kit. allows you to connect your old hd to the new hd and transfer all your account settings and saves. best buy also offers a service where they will do it for you. there is a charge associated with that. there are ways to copy the inofrmation to the computer and back but that void s the warranty and is not recommended.

Xbox 360 hard drive problems help plz read.


it sounds like a major Technical defect with the HDD that could happen on old HDD's. How long have you had the HDD for? If it's new, you should be able to take it back to the retailer and request a replacement. If not, check to see if it is still under the Microsoft warrenty. If it is, contact xbox support and they will ask you to send it to them for repair (unfortunately). Make sure you don't move them about too much either - they're traditional HDD's, not SSD's that microsoft use with the 360. However, if it isn't covered at all (i.e. it's a very old drive) you may have to take the plunge and get a new HDD.
I know, it hurts, but at least it isn't the RROD.

Old Harddrive New Xbox


You will not have any problems using the Hard drive on your new console. The only catch is any Live Arcade downloads will not work offline until you do the DRM transfer. Even though you are using the same Hard Drive the DRM is married to the original console. They have made it easy to transfer now. All you need is to be logged into XBOX Live and a computer that is on the internet. Just turn on your console, log it into XBOX Live, and use the computer to go to www.xbox.com/drm That will solve all of your problems.

Ok we bought a new harddrive 120 gigs of memory and first it only had 117 but thats not the problem ... the problem is that when i tryed to look at an acheivment after we transfered everything over from...


Unfortunately without having a xbox live account all your achievements I'm afraid are lost. Next time before to link your account to at least a Silver membership (the free one) that way if you ever accidentally delete or lose your profile information, you can just recover your gamer tag from Xbox Live along with all your gamer info.

One more question though, does your 20gig hdd still contain your profile and gamer achievements? If so, you could most likely just copy it onto a memory card over to your 120gb hdd.

Also the reason its only 117gb, is the same reason all hdd are not the same size they are advertised. The manufacturer assumes 1000mB = 1GB when in reality 1024mB = 1GB. So 120,000mB (which is the physical size of the hard drive) divided by 1024mB = ~117GB.

Profile transfer from old 20gb hard drive to 60gb one


When you turn on your new 360 (the 60 GB one), there will be an option on the dashboard that reads "Recover Gamertag". As long as you are connected to the internet, follow the instructions laid out. Just press A on the recover gamertag option; it will then ask for your gamertag, the e-mail address associated with it, and maybe a few other things. After that is completed, just wait for the switch to occur. It usually takes about 5-15 minutes or so, so just be patient. If you do not have internet access, you will need to purchase a 360 memory card. You can then go to the memory option on the last blade of the xbox 360 dashboard (the purple one to the right) and copy it from there. It will then be on your memory card. Then just do the same process to copy it from the card to the new xbox. You will also need to use the memory card if you plan on copying saved game files.
