Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer

Old Harddrive New Xbox

I am getting a new Arcade Xbox 360 and will be attaching my old 20 Gig harddrive to the new console.

Will this run smoothly or will I have issues getting the box to play all my games with my profile?

The harddrive is from a console that is just over 2 years old.

Thanks

El

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.

I purchased an xbox 360 arcade 2nd hand, then purchased a bunch of old games that don't work on this model. i then puchased a 250gb harddrive but am still not sure how to update the console to be able to...


Who exactly is "They"? By my understanding, the X-box 360 Arcade is NOT backwards compatible, meaning it cannot play original x-box games. The only one i know of that can is the X-Box 360 elite.

Now then, if you go online to the X-box live Marketplace, they have quite a few original x-box games available for download, but you have to pay for them :( These downloaded versions WILL work with the 360 Arcade

Red light blinking on front of xbox 360


How many red lights flashed? One, or three?

One means that your harddrive isn't seated correctly.
Three means that your console is more or less screwed, and needs to be repaired by Microsoft.

New 360


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.

Family settings


You would have to get the old password and stuff from the other people or you can just buy a new harddrive and I think that should work.
