...can you not just take ure hdd



too much physical hassle. especially since i know it can be done with a memory card. cheers anyway

If you want to take only your profile (and possibly a small amount of content) with you, the recommended way is to use a Memory Unit. Dashboard -> System -> Memory -> select the hard drive -> Gamer Profiles -> Move to the memory unit; and then reverse the last three steps to move it back again when you get to his house. The nice thing about a memory unit is you don't have to swap hard drives, and because you can use it simultaneously with a hard drive, you can use the MU to copy content from your house to your friend's house, or access your friends' saved games and other content with your profile.

yeh, just don't forget to copy the account back to your hdd when you're finished, otherwise, you have to go throught the hassle of downloading it again.

Because if you don't, you will have to have the memory card inserted into the console 100% of the time to use your gamertag. This brings up the 'choose which device to save to' every time you download something which can become annoying, and of course, if you leave the memory card somewhere...like say over a friends house (which was the point of the thread), then you will have to download your gamertag again to use it, before you get the memory card back

btw 67 is the last level.
