My older 360 Elite model quit for the second time last week. Pretty positive it's not related to the 120GB HDD, as the first time it quit was a thermal problem which I fixed. My question is related to the data transfer cable, is it only used for transferring files, or can it be used as a permanent solution for added storage to the new 360 S model? The S model the family just got is only 4GB, and with the built in wifi and a new live account I've discovered the joy of DLC. I've downloaded 1GB in the first week and need to know if I can get the transfer cable set up to the Elite 120 GB as a permanent storage device, or if I need to purchase a 16GB flash drive for the added storage.
