Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Console - Black

1 Answer

My grandson just got the xbox 360 elite. We brought a transfer cable to transfer his xbox to xbox 360 elite. It does not transfer. Also, he can not create a profie. He keeps hitting continue with no luck. What are we doing wrong? Is there something else we have to buy? Do we need a storage unit or something. Thanks

These are the step by step procedure on how you can transfer the data to your XBOX elite and including all the things that you need to make that transfer works.

1. Acquire the Data Migration Kit. It includes the necessary cable and CD to transfer data from the Xbox 360 20GB hard drive to the Elite's 120GB hard drive. Complete the order form on the Microsoft website to get a free transfer kit or check if you can buy it online.
2. Unplug all accessories from the Xbox Elite. Connect a controller that is needed to follow the onscreen instructions during the transfer process.
3. Turn the power off and remove the hard drives from both consoles.
4. Install the 20GB hard drive containing all your data into the Elite Xbox. Turn on the Elite system and make sure the controller is working.
5. Connect one end of the transfer cable to the 120GB hard drive and the other end to the rear USB port on the Elite.
6. Insert the transfer CD and follow the onscreen instructions. The transfer can take a few minutes or up to an hour, depending on how much content is on your 20GB hard drive.
7. Disconnect the cable when the transfer is complete. Remove the 20GB hard drive from the Elite system and reinstall the 120GB hard drive.

This is a common problem, just keep trying to update, no need to test the connection. Sometimes it takes a few tries, sometimes it takes a few hundred tries, but eventually it will connect and download the update.
