I bought my xbox 360 in the year it was released, so I have the classic (non-slim non-elite) version with a 20 gigabyte hard drive.
10 gigs is used by the xbox system itself so I have about 10 gigs worth of free space.
At first this wasn't really a problem. Most early games didn't come with DLC, and xbox live didn't offer any (big) games for download.
Lately though, I've been downloading games and extra content for my games (mostly extra stuff for Mass Effect) and my storage capacity is shrinking rapidly.
I've been looking into getting a larger disk, but all I could find were hard disks for the xbox 360 slim, which don't fit on my system.
I scoured eBay and managed to dig up a 60GB drive. Once connected, it seemed this disk has a Chinese name, which I thought was a bit fishy.
Years ago I bought a Nintendo DS game with internal memory and it went kerplonk on me after a few weeks.
When I sent it to Nintendo for repair it turned out it was a Chinese fake.
I would dread to think this could happen to all my stored xbox savegames.
As such, I have some questions:
- When you transfer stuff from one hard disk to the other, is it a copy or a move?
Basically, if something goes wrong with my new disk, can I still fall back on the stuff I had on my older disk or is the older disk emptied when the copy is done?
- Should I decide not to take the risk and just shell out for a new xbox with larger hard disk, will I be able to transfer my stuff from the old type of drive to the new type?
