upgrading from old console to new console

I recently just had my xbox360 show me one red ring. I followed the support steps and have established that the problem is my hardrive. I thought about buying a new hardrive and just transferring my files over but was told that i might transfer the problem over as well; is this true? Also if i just buy the brand new console how do i get all my data moved over to the new one? Will I lose all of my saved data?

You can use a correctly formatted USB flash-drive to move your game saves and profile over to the new console,

Then use your download history to re-download everything over. (If moving data to a new consoles HDD you will also need to transfer your licences using the DRM tool).

Or you can use an official MS transfer kit. (This moves everything over in one go to the new HDD).

I have never heard of an issue being transferred over to a new HDD, where did you hear that?.

Have you taken a look at the red light wizard?, if not take a quick look.

Did this solve your problem?
