I thought they are free on xbox.com? I got one about a year ago and it cost me nothing. Maybe ring them up?

Theres was no need to start this thread, theres like 4 billion others on this topic. Call Microsoft and they will send you one for free.

A buddy of mine told me they are charging for them. He could be wrong but I know I got mine for free from MS a year or more ago.

Think you can get them free if you have gotten a new 360 but what do I know.

Either way there has been so many of these threads a simple search would have answered your question

I gave my old transfer kit to my buddy and he said it worked fine. I then used another buddies transfer kit myself which he used and it worked no problem. Im pretty sure it will work for you and your friend.


About the whole transfer kit charge thing.
I got a MW2 edition console in 11/2009 and called MS to get a cable and they said they are no longer free. So I think they started to charge for them.

Half the time you call them they say it isn't free but I just printed the form did it on the mail and waited 2 weeks. And I too bought the MW2 console and after I bought it I sent the form.

The printed for no longer works, you can't download it off xbox.com anymore, so you do have to pay for all future cables and cds.

I could not for the life of me find it on xbox.com. The links were all broken.

I called MS and talked to three different people and I couldn't get a free one so I ended up paying. Do you have the link Infection? Just curious. (edit: Fizz answered my question)

Oh and also, the rep on the phone claimed you can only use the kit once, and I think in the instructions it says to dispose of it afterwards. They likely want us to each buy our own instead of sharing or selling on eBay. But, many have confirmed that this is not true

I've checked where I got it last time from and now they say in Dutch: Wanneer u een nieuw Xbox 360 Elite Systeem heeft gekocht en de gegevens wilt overzetten, dan kunt u de Xbox klantenservice contacteren (http://www.xbox.com/nl-NL/support/contact/) om deze kabel voor de prijs van 10.90 te bestellen (exclusief BTW).

Which means when you've bought a new Xbox 360 Elite System and you want to transfer the data then you can contact the Xbox Live customer support to order this kabel for the price of 10,90 (excluding BTW).

They also say that you get the cable with a 120GB HDD.
