Ok so around holiday time this year I bought the Xbox slim with kinect. I also got a 250 gb internal hard drive. I've recently began to run out of space because I share the console. There were a couple of things I was wondering about 1.) should I purchase
a new internal hard drive (320 gb). And if so, is there a way to transfer my content from my old hard drive to my new. (note: I am not getting a new Xbox just a new hard drive) 2.) considering the fact that buying a new internal hard drive would only leave
me around 130 gb left, should I buy an external hard drive. If so, what are your reccomendations for a good sized external hard drive? Thanks in advance, you can also message me on Xbox live, my gamer tag is BruisingCrowd
As for your question regarding external hard drives, no matter what size hard drive you get you can only use 16GB for your Xbox storage.
You could also use a USB flash drive to transfer your content but as you seem to have a lot to move I would recommend using the data transfer cable. Please ensure that if you do get the data transfer cable that it is a genuine Microsoft certified cable otherwise
you can have all sorts of issues and end up with hard drives that will not work as Xbox hard drives.
When the going gets tough find something easier to do.
