I am going to get a new 250gb one today but how do I transfer my data between the two Xboxs?

If you are going to get a new one wouldn't you think asking the people at the counter would be a better idea since they will have what you need to do so there?

In any case, you have opions, you can use a transfer cable or you can use a thumb drive but you must first partition it on your 360 and the highest partition i believe is 16GB. So if you have a HDD you have have to do a lot of snapping on, transfer portions of data, snap off old HDD snap on new HDD transfer data to new HDD, which can be tedious.

Transfer cable would be the best bet and honestly if you get one through Gamestop in most cases if you ask they have a store one that they use that you can "buy" use and bring back for a refund as they know no one actually wants to buy and keep a transfer cable. Well at least all the Gamestops around where I live do this...
