is your old xbox broken? if not you can use any usb memory stick and put the data on the stick then copy it to your xbox slim.

or you can just recover your gamertag goto download history and download those arcade games and videos.

if you are always connected to xbox live then thats all you need to do, but if you want to be able to access your content even if you're offline then you have to do a license transfer. (you can only do this ONCE A YEAR)

This is what I needed to know. When I plugged in the new system it had a few things that said "Assigned to other Xbox" or some crap but then I delved deeper and found that I could still download my arcade games.

My old Xbox had a busted disc drive (had to pry it open with a tool), a 20gb hard drive, and serious overheating issues (the fans are still roaring whenever its on but I have to keep it in the lower floors of the house to keep it from switching itself off).

The lowered the timer on how often you can do it to 120 days.

You can also do a license transfer on the console itself now.
