Xbox 360 Slim: Hard Drive Data Transfer Guide

By Alan Ng - Jun 15, 2010

For those of you who have already decided to pick up Microsoft’s new Xbox 360 console, we have found a very useful guide for you, which shows you how to easily transfer your data from one console to another.

The guide comes to us courtesy of Kotaku, who have provided a few options in which gamers can choose from in transfering all of your game saves and other media.

Firstly, it is important for you to know that the hard drive featured inside the old model is ‘not’ compatible with the newer model, so the first option is to start backing up all of your data on a USB flash drive – you’ll probably need a large one to save hassle transferring bit-by-bit.

If that doesn’t impress you, then the second option is to use the Xbox 360 data transfer cable, which will set you back $19. This will connect both consoles up and you can transfer files straight from your old one to the slimmer one.
