can i just buy a new console and stick my hard drive in it? or is this HD permanently screwed?

Xbox.com says you can use your hdd in another console. I posted the link in the other topic.

word, i'm torn on either a diff console and HD or just using my old hd. i guess i should just use my old hd....what is this xbox E system? would my slim's HD work in that with no issues or are they incompatible/need a different enclosure?

You'll need to do a license transfer for everything on the HDD, which potentially puts your new system in the Red Flag zone, so if you should ever do anything even slightly wrong with it they'll probably insta-ban you.

I thought when they console banned you they corrupted up your HDD?

well i have heard...that if i play games and resave my saves, they will be useless...but if i copy them all now without ever playing the games again, they should work on a different console just fine...am i correct, anyone?

there are actually some good deals on consoles at the moment, as a lot of stores are offering $50 gift cards on top of discounts

so if i use the same HD do i need to delete all my games on it, in order to do the license transfer to my new system? i think u need to redownload the games for the transfer to affect.
