Data transfer

H,i just a quick question: If I use the data transfer cables to move my stuff, does the destination HDD get wiped before the transfer. I have stuff on there too that I don't want to lose. Also, does my music get transferred as well?

Yes it will wipe everything on the new HDD (bar pre-loaded content), transfer everything from the old HDD, and then erase the information on the old HDD.

I'm sure you can select what to transfer, or it will do EVERYTHING including music automatically, though I am not 100% and you may need a USB stick to do this transfer separately.

Using a USB is trickier as the save games are linked to your gamertag on that system and will not be able to transfer to a new system

@ Punishair - you are incorrect.  Save games transfer fine.  I've used this method myself and recommend it over a transfer cable as you can pick and choose what you want to transfer.
