ok so I'm trying to figure a way to transfer all my data etc from my current 360 hd to a new one I bought today. Is there away to do this without one of the transfer cable things that you have to pay money for?
any help would be appreciated

It looks like you can just plug in a Flash DriveFlash Drive, save your data, then copy it onto the new one. According to this page you can only store up to 16GB on it, but I don't know if that just means you'll have to do 16GB at a time (if you have more than that needing to be transferred), or what, but I suppose it can't hurt to see what happens if you plug in something bigger than 16GB, like an external USB hard drive or just a bigger flash. Let us know how it went. Smile

Re: transferring data from 360 hard drive....

thanks sd. It worked like a charm, although for some reason it didnt copy another gamer tag. My concern is I got a smaller hd than was advertised. I bought it being a 20 gig but its showing like 13 gig free space, and I transferred less than a gig to it. should I take it back? surely XBOXXBOX wouldnt reserve 7 gigs without my knowledge would they?

Glad to hear it all worked out for ya. The XBOXXBOX does reserve alot of space, so no need to return it. Have a looky here: Clicky
