Is it possible to use an old Xbox 360 hard drive with the new Xbox 360 S? I had a hard drive failure on my 250GB aftermarket hard drive (surprise!) where I can still access my stuff but I can't go online and download the new system update. It also won't recognize a flash drive or blank CD for some reason. Can I use the transfer cable and my old 120GB hard drive as a temporary external hard drive? Or do I have to complete the transfer and use my old Elite for now?
I know it's a hard drive problem because that's what the status code translates to on the xbox.com support page here.
