Just got a brand new xbox, bought a transfer cable and transfer wont work!

i have just bought a brand new xbox and a transfer cable, i've tried to tranfer my data over to my new console, but the notification for the cable has not come up, its all plugged in correctly, I have tried each of the suggestions on the site apart from the disc one (as i have no appropriate discs) to get the system update so that I can transfer my data but none of them work! Getting really frustrated! I dont want to just recover my gamertag as none of my saves will be on there! ='( HELP PLEASE

Are you transferring from a Fat xbox hard drive to the slim?

You can use a USB to transfer content like saves if the transfer cable is not working like it should.

Yes I am, and I would copy it onto a USB and do it that way but I'm transferring from a 60GB, so hardly any of my stuff would go over =(

Is the Transfer kit the official MS version Assassin?, if not that would explain your issue.

If you continue to have problems though and you decide to follow the suggestion to use a flash-drive to just move your game saves and profile over to the new console, then when you have done that you could use your download history to re-download all your DLC, map packs, themes gamerpics etc.

(Also just in-case you did not know you will also need to transfer your licences using the DRM tool).

The cable I bought was from Amazon and I'm pretty sure it's not an official...going to Gamestation tomorrow to get a decent one, if I have any further problems after that I'll repost on here, thanks very much! Very much appreciated.

=) don't worry, it's fine, it's only to be expected that people assume gamers are mostly guys! I've had much worse reactions from people before after finding out that I'm female =P
