Trading Xboxes

Is it possible to trade consoles?

For example, if I trade a console with a friend because they don't really need 250GB and I was willing to trade my 60GB pro for their 250GB and they accept. Now with a transfer cable, is it possible to trade xbox without losing any data?

This is what I want to happen:

Their Xbox Content -->To my Xbox/My Old Xbox Content To-->Their Xbox

No, you can't swap content both ways, you would have to use a USB flash drive.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

If the 250gb console is one of the older design consoles, not the newer X360S, why not just swap the hard drives instead of the whole console?

As for the saved data, the transfer cable will NOT work for a couple of reasons:

  • The transfer cable will only transfer from the smaller hard drive to the larger hard drive, not the reverse.  You can not transfer data from a 250Gb HDD to a 60Gb HDD 
  • Once you use the transfer cable, it may overwrite the data of the hard drive that the data is being written to.
     


What you could do is move the stuff from the 60Gb HDD onto a USB memory, then from the USB onto the 250Gb HDD (Remember to move the gamertag BEFORE the content).  Then move the stuff from the 250Gb HDD onto the 60Gb HDD (again, gamertag first, then content).

If you end up swapping the entire console, you will both need to transfer the DRM content license.  If you only swap hard drives, you may or may not need to transfer the DRM license.  I'm not entirely sure, whether it will or not you will need to.  You will need if none of your downloaded content will work http://support.xbox.com/en-us/xbox-live/troubleshoot/play-xbox-live-content
