Data transfer not working

Hi ! I bought a transfer cable to transfer my datas from my old xbox 360 (which doesnt work anymore) to my new xbox 360 S. But this is not working : The new xbox detect the old hard drive but cannot transfer its datas : I only can format it.
Why cant I use my datas ? Does not the hard disk work anymore ? 

Thank you, Rhoxas

STOP, do not continue to use that data transfer cable. From what you describe you have a third party cable which will render your hard drive useless as an xbox hard drive. Did you actually format the drive yet? If so it's to late and the hard drive could only be used as a USB device on the console.

All right, I didn't know that different data transfer cable exist. Indeed, this one isn't a Microsoft transfer cable, but where can I find one ? I got this one on Ebay but indeed they only purpose me to use my hard drive as a USB device.

(I didn't format yet, so my datas are still on my old hard drive)

By the way thank you for answering so fastly

Any reputable game store or store that sells xbox consoles should be able to help with regards to the genuine cable. Online is also a good place to look but as you already know double check it is a genuine data transfer kit. Sure they cost a little more but that is a small price to pay rather than risking losing your data and having a none working xbox hard drive.
