After following the instruction for transfering data from my 20g hard drive to my 120g it stops at the screen that tells you to unplug all ports besides the drive, it only gives me a back option and nothing else happens. When I hit back it goes to the screen that ask you if you want to erase data or continue. Why will it not transfer?

If your xbox dropped while it was running, then more than likely the hard drive is damaged, and you won't be able to recover the data.You may be able to disassemble the Hard Drive and connect it to your PC or laptop by following the instructions here:

First you should back up any important data onto an external hard drive, or transfer your data to another PS3 via the transfer function. Both options are available through the PS3 settings tab of the XMB.
After all the data you wish to keep is safe, then reformat the PS3`s hard drive via the reformat function also found in the PS3 settings tab of the XMB.
Go to settings, system settings, reformat utility, and follow the on screen prompts.
If this is successful then restore the backed up data onto the PS3.
If this doesnt work you may want to consider a Blu-ray cleaning disc such as this:
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.
You have to go online and get modio or xport 360 and do it via pc. Basically when it comes up, take all your folders out of there. You need a resigner as well. It's a lot harder than ppl realize. You have to transfer codes, etc.....
You must use the microsoft data transfer cable and software disk. These can be obtained by calling 1-800-4my-xbox(1-800-469-9269). They charge $12.95 for this but if you complain a little about upgrading consoles and then having to spend MORE money they may give it to you FREE(they did for me). Shipping is NEXT DAY or second day at most. If they still want to charge you tell them you'll just return it and by a PS3. :)
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
IF the sandisk is not formatted as Fat32 then the new PS3s will not recognize it. To format to fat32 follow these steps:
1. Transfer all the data onto a PC or another thumb drive.
2. go to START, CONTROL PANEL, ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS, COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, and select DISK MANAGER on the left hand side options. Select the external drive and read the "File System" type. If it says "NTFS", right click the disk and select "Delete Partition".
3. Reformat the drive as FAT32
4. Once you are SURE the partition is FAT32, open "My Computer" and double-click on your empty external hard drive. Now, you will want to create a folder system identical to that on the Playstation 3. Right click to create a new folder and name the first folder "Photo". Do this for "Music", "Video" and "Game". When you are finished, you should have 4 folders total in the hard drive. Each folder should (at this point) be empty.
5. Now transfer your saved information into the correct folders, safely remove the drive, and you are ready to go.
