transfering info from 360s to 360s

Ok..here is my situation...my son is getting the new gears 360 system, and giving me his current system which is a newer 360s. I have the older original system now. I understand that I should have no problem transfering the data from my old system to the current 360s machine with the transfer cable, but we first need to transfer the info off that one to the new gears machine...this is where it seems to get tricky.....I have heard that we can use a flash drive to transfer his gamertag , but can we transfer all his info in this manner. I know we can only go 16 gig at a time,can this be done in stages like this...15.5 gig at a time??? he has almost 100 gigs of info.

On a side note..microsoft really needs to solve this problem....im sure there are many people who having this problem.

Yes you can transfer most things over a USB flash drive.

The only thing that do not get transfer over with a USB flash drive or a Transfer cable, is any installed games. You will have to delete them and manually install them again.

You'd have to do that anyway Sonic, as for some reason game installs are tied to the console it was done on.

Im going to have this problem aswell and it's doing my head in. There has to be a way to do a HDD transfer from 360s to 360s.  Hope they come up with a way.

Microsoft has said that they will be selling a new cable so that we will be able to do S to S. Price is unsure at the time. I think it should be free cause its all bunny foofoo that they want to make us pay when the first one we got for free if we got the new elite

They came up with a way. If you have a Gears of War console call the support line and request the cable. I did a couple days ago. They didn't charge me, though my records show I own two other 360 S consoles (regular, Halo Reach).
