Transferring data from 360 slim to another 360 slim

So, the transfer cable is good and all, but, you can't transfer data from a slim xbox to another slim xbox. What's that about? With the gears 3 xbox coming out now, I'm sure a lot of people who rushed out to get the regular slim when it first came out are pretty upset that they can't get the data from their old slim to the new one...

I was also in the same boat and was forced to use a 16GB USB drive to transfer my stuff.  I mean it's all very well saying that we can use a USB or re-grab stuff from your history but if like me you've had an Xbox 360 from day 1 there are plenty of DLC files that simply aren't there anymore!

Oh and it took me 5 hours to transfer everything! Five freaking hours!

I'm annoyed because I was lead to believe by AceyBongos (via Twitter) that there was a Slim to Slim cable due yet Xbox Support on Twitter kept saying that they couldn't comment on this.

AceyBongos today actually replied to us on Twitter saying "I dunno - did the shop not have them?" as if he expected there to be one!

Please contact Phone Support if you'd like assistance in transferring content from a 360 S to a new Gears of War 3 console. :) support.xbox.com/contact-us

They just announced the slim to slim cable on Major Nelson's podcast. The place to order that cable is not what they said it is though. (It's still the old cable) So, yeah, contact support.
