(never done this before, hope this is the right place to post it hehe. if not then im sorry)

Well, i got a Xbox Arcade 20gb right now(had it for 3 years), and i am about to buy a xbox slim 250gb.
And i got at least around 20gb just for my main account. and i got alot of games which is only single player games and a few online games. so how do i move my account and saves and the rest over to the new xbox??

Please help me, i will get a new xbox in 2-4 weeks and i would like to know before that. thank you.

I used a 16gb micro sd card with a usb adapter to transfer from my 20gb to my new 120gb hdd.

Or there's an official data transfer cable, you plug your old hard drive into it, then the other end fits into the USB slot on your new Xbox.

Cost a fair bit to only have to use it once, so maybe try borrowing one or buy one second hand, I was lucky enough to have someone lend me theirs.

Buy a USB stick, load the saves you need onto it, move them to your Slim.

I don't have a girlfriend, but I'm determined to get one this year. Too bad it's not easy as flipping a switch. Girlfriend on, girlfriend off.

Just when I thought I had finally found a part of your test to circle,
it ended up being a zero in the score box instead.

Ok then thanks. Kinda nervous <.< I lost one of my account once and could not recover it so i hope this works for once :/

Btw, do i need to go to every save file and copy it over or how do i to it exactly? im sorry if im asking to much, i just want to be 100% sure on how to do it.
Or does anyone got a good link to a video or something?

Insert your USB stick and configure it on your X360 (forgot how to do it, but it's quite easy. If it doesn't ask you immediately, just go to the memory/storage/whatever settings.)
Pick a save file and copy or move it to your USB. Repeat until all save files you want have been moved (I think you can also copy your account?)
Insert the USB into your new Slim
