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.

Can I transfer downloaded games from my old xbox360 to my new xbox360


If your console was recently repaired or if you've purchased a new console, use the license transfer option on your console to transfer content licenses. Here's how:
  • On your console, sign in to Xbox Live using the gamertag that you used to purchase the content.Don't know your gamertag? See Download, move, or delete your Xbox Live profile.
  • Need to find your Microsoft account? See Find your Microsoft account.
  • Can't remember the password for your Microsoft account? See Recover your Microsoft account password.

  1. Go to Settings and select Account.
  2. Under Your Billing Options, select License Transfer.
  3. Follow the instructions to transfer the content licenses.
  4. After the licenses are transferred, you need to download the content again to update the local licenses. For information about how to do this, see Download content you've previously purchased.
After you follow these steps, content can be used by other profiles on your console and when you're not connected to Xbox Live.

I downloaded RE5 extra content on my hard drive and another persons console and when i tried to transfer my hard drive back to my console the extra content wont play. How can i get this to work?


The reason behind this was due to the console's unique encription which is being transmitted back to Microsoft whenever hooked up thru Xbox Live using a particular gamertag/profile was activated to avoid software duplication and/or any sort of software piracy. What you can do is to recover your gamertag into your own Xbox 360 and load the game RE5 and it DLC should work after that.

Simply play online. Things downloaded on the same HDD but different console won't work on another console for some reason, so just get on Xbox LIVE.

My xbox 360 died and i bought a 2nd hand one. I purchased many arcade games from xbox live and they are saved on the memory pack. i have transfered this over and no it keeps telling me to unlock the games!...


You have to recover your gamertag for these arcade games to be played again, it's like an anti - piracy feature of the Xbox 360System not to allow data transfer wihtout prior notice. On your new Xbox 360 System:

• press the xbox guide button
• if your are signed in to your profile, you have to sign out first
• after signing out, press the Xbox guide button again and select recover gamertag
• on the next page, confirm on the prompt and follow the onscreen prompt to recover your gamertag

This should allow you to manage and play your downloaded Xbox Live Arcade Games.

It is a compulsary update for your Xbox 360 system so it can support the feature you are trying to do. So you really might want to join to Xbox Live by creating an Xbox Live account and by signing in to Xbox Live, it will automatically install the latest firmware to update your system.

Is there any way to recover save games and d/l content off a formatted 360 HDD?


you probably have to get the transfer kit; i highly recommend this. you can also try transferring them with the 360 memory cards but i dont recommend it because you will lose some data.

Moved live profile to another machine but all content off other hard drive as not moved help ????


This is due to the fact that you have simply recovered your profile. None of your game saves or downloadable content are moved this way. To move them, you'll need an Xbox 360 Transfer Cable.

It won't work unless you moved from a 20GB or 60GB Hard Drive to a 120GB though. Call Microsoft's Support line (the US one is 1-800-MY-XBOX, or something similar; check Google before you dial), and ask for a 360 Transfer Cable.

They will ask you for the Console Serial Number, and after you give them it, you will get your Transfer Cable when it is posted to you.

Hard drive not read


Thats because the elite will only recognize a 60gb or higher. Pretty much you are keeping your xbox from operating at it's full potential.

Hi,

Sorry, there isn't any way to transfer content from one gamertag to another. A license transfer will allow you to download and use content on your new console, but all of that content will still be tied to your original Gamertag.

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.
