Re: 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.

if you can get a usb (at least 1 gb) and plug it into your friends xbox, you can put your gamertag profile onto the usb and then transfer it manually. this is the safest way. your usb must be configured to Windows FAT32 file system format (devices formatted for use with other file systems might not work). On your console go to my xbox then system settings, then memory. on the storage devices screen select usb storage device. select configure now (note this will erase everything on your usb) then The Xbox console tests your USB storage device to make sure it will work correctly with the console. If your device passes this test, you can use it as a USB memory unit. to get your gamer profile on there go to system settings, memory then the hard drive, select gamer profiles and move your gamer profile to the usb. you shouldnt recover your gamer tag unless you absolutely have to as any achievements or changes you have made since the account last connected to Xbox LIVE will be lost during the recovery process. once again do not recover your gamertag to a friend's console as a convenience, as you could also lose your saved games!
First of all its not all xbox 360 content thats transferabble between different consoles, secondly even the content that can be transfered might not fit on some of the storage media such as the 256 memory card and lastly points earned in games come with your gamertag or profile, once you have copied your profile you should have your points and achievements copied along with it, to the best of my knowledge all the above is true and it is an understatement to say i am an avid xbox360 gamer, hope this helped..
It should carry everything over including music and profiles. If you put 200 hrs on Bethesda's Oblivion, when you transfer your data to the newer bigger H/D, it will be there. You may be thinking of recovering a gamertag on somebody else's console where it is ultimately recovering your profile. Hope this helps, it copies everything, I know this from personal experience, the only mistake I make was putting 50 hrs of fallout on my new h/d, and when I transfered the 20G info to the new 60G, it wipes the 60G and transfer's, not like a thumb drive where it would have added files. so if anything is on the receiving h/d, the it will be erased.
attatch your new hard drive, then recover your gamertag,but it will not recover data that is stored on the original hd,only stuff that is stored on your profile, I did this recently, my cod4 waw and mw2 all transfered to my new one but forza 3 didn't, so I would not wipe the old one untill you are sure you can get by without it.
Remember to thumbs up if this helps.
Because your hard drive is damaged your best bet is to recover your gamertag onto the new one, on your profile page the end one says recover gamertag click on this,enter your gamertag, you will then need your e-mail address that you created your account with, then you need your password, this will recover your gamertag onto your new hard drive, it also transfers any ms points and your gold membership.
Hope this helps.
When you buy the new hard drive it will most likely come with a transfer cable which will enable you to transfer all of your saved data from one hard drive to another. if u mean a memory card not hard drive just tell me again i ll sort it out
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.
