    360 - Transferring from 20Gb to 120Gb

    Banned
    I got a 120Gb hard drive through from Deal Extreme today and was just looking to copy over my profile and game saves to the new drive.

    Anyone know what the easiest/cheapest way to do this is?

    I can't get a free migration kit off Microsoft and don't fancy splashing out over 20 quid for something I'll use for like 5 minutes

    Cheers

    the only way i know of is to use the Migration lead.

    If you've got a gamestation near you ask if you can borrow one. I needed to borrow one and they said I could, I even offered to pay a deposit but the guy said that wasn't necessary.

    Will give that a go then.

    Can i use a memory card for it as well? Would have to buy one though which I don't really want to do as won't use again

    the cable is actually supposed to come with the HDD kits, you should only need to obtain one if change the whole console

    i just bought a 120gb hdd form sainsburys
    the included transfer kit doesn't work for me as im upgrading form 60gb to 120gb so have applied for a data migration kit as it seems to want to up grade from 20gb -120gb only

    why can you get a free one?

    I got mine from deal extreme so I'm assuming it doesn't include the kit but won't know for sure after work.

    Any know if the DX hard drive includes a cable?

    the dealextreme ones are fakes m8, they will work but the hacked HDSS.bin used to fool the 360 that it's a real 360 drive "could" get detected on LIVE and get you banned.

    Cheaper is not always better.

    I have a migration cable I will send with those games m8 by the end of the week, I cant find the CD anywhere so will try to find the software.:thumbsup:

    I have a migration kit from MS never used it, still in packet, would sell it (I don't use 360 anymore)

    Knew it was fake but just going to use it on my modded 360. I'm never going to go onto live with the console or HD so will be cool. Just got it to copy my music on and install few full games to make it run quieter.

    If you could send that that'd be great and I'd send it back once copied :thumbsup:

    Will keep you updated..

    Anyone know where i can get it from?

    If you have no luck above I will sell you mine for cheap, you can call price.
    Anyhow hope you get one for free, good luck lad..
    Nice Avatar

    how u do u apply for one please?

    I'm a member over on the AV Forums.com - we have a system where there are two or 3 migration kits for use.

    You add your name to the list - you are sent the migration kit out in the post - you use it, and then
    send it recorded delivery to the next member on the list.

    All very amicable

    All for free :w00t:

    Alright mate, I won't need that software. I tested the drive last night and it worked perfectly so if you could just send the cable with those games that'd be sweet
