Basicly me and my brother are getting new rooms but we both share the xbox 360 so the plan is we buy another one but my question is..

Can i somehow transfer my profile (gamertag) on that xbox to the new one . Cause ive worked hard to get gamerscore built up friends etc and i would hate it if i had to give up my profile.

should be able to just do the recover on the new system then delt off the other one so your bro doesnt mess with it.
or copy your info onto a memory card and transfer it

it is so much better to buy a memorycard and just transfer it, becaues i heard people who use gamertag recovery lose all their achievements and friends.

The only time when you don't lose information with the recovery system is when your profile is corrupted or damaged.

so if you use recover gamertag to recover it somewhere else on a different xbox, and use it then use it on my xbox i shouldnt lose the data

ok so random but, theres a program called xplorer 360 and you can hook yhour hardrive to your PC(you have to open it) and send your game saves, and photomode pictures to your pc, and you can even download gamesaves like cod2 complete on veteran etc. etc. , and i just saw a memoprycard on ebay with a usb coard attached, which that works to, i wish M$ would of made there memory cards USB, but that would have caused so much more hacking of the 360.

how do you hook your hardrive to your pc you got any pics? i hope eventually you can take an external USB hardrive, and put some file on it that lets 360 read/write on it.

you have to have an SATA adapter i think, then you pull the hard drive out of its case and plug it in, start the computer up and transfer all the stuff over to the appropriate directory

ahh i heard of some guy copying his 360 files to his computer through a SATA laptop hardrive USB 2.0 encloser, and then coppying them to a 300gb hardrive and using that as his 360 hardrive, thats such a good idea.

pretty sure thats not possible, you wont be able to use a different hard drive as the xbox 360's only hard drive until the box is modded

well it worked for him was even on teamxbox, he connected the 300gb hardrive back into the 360 hardrive enclosure case and said it worked. unless he's lying.

Yes youve seen how much room is taken up on the 360 hard drive with security files i dont think it will be possible till they have a stable mod chip
