After my red ring of death I kept my old 30gb harddrive (or was it 20gb?). Now I have gotten my new slim arcade and noticed that I cannot use the old harddrive anymore because the connectors are now at a different location.

Is it possible to still get somehow access to my data and savestates? Maybe a special mod-cable with the right connectors or something?
The harddrive itself propably is a 2.5 inch ide, so maybe with a torx screwdriver I can open the box and use this actual harddrive somehow?

Anyone?

You have to buy some cable so you can transfer your data. I believe it costs around $20.

Maybe I should add that the old Xbox doesn't work anymore and I only have the harddrive. I think you need the original Xbox for the cable to work.

Incorrect. You can use the transfer cable with the new Xbox.

Also you can youtube videos on how to use your old HDD for your new xbox slim. There is a way

Thank you for the infomation.
Now I need to find out what Torx T6 and T10 is in metric :D

EDIT
Nevermind, it's identical, T6=1.70mm & T10=2.74mm.
