I have frickin' tried everything. Bought the HD transfer cable for 360...Elite only recognizes it as a USB and won't transfer games (yes, system is updated based on my XBOX Live profile I recovered online). Transferred all the folders of CONTENT file from HDD drive to my PC, transferred them to a 16GB USB stick (after letting XBOX partition it) and while it is recognized it shows all the folders are empty-no saved games-no profiles. I even burned the files to a CD and tried to transfer them but the disk drive in the Elite won't recognize the files and all I get is "open tray".
I don't know what else to possibly try??? Any clues? How do I get the Elite to A) recognize the old HDD via the transfer cable or B) get the contents of CONTENT folder from HDD now on my PC (10.8G) over to Elite?
