    Glad you managed to get that working in the end.

    You want Xplorer 360 Extreme2 to copy his content off the 20gig drive and Xplorer 360 250gb Edition to copy content to the new 250gig drive.

    Before copying any content you might want to have a look at this post, it details how to work around a problem files you inject end up in the wrong place. Remember to run Xplorer 360 with admin rights.

    I believe you can disable UAC on Vista / Windows 7 then reboot and Xplorer 360 will allow you to drag and drop which means you will not have the above problem. If your on XP it should just work as long as your user account has admin rights.

    On your 20gig drive delete anything on it you dont need, such as installed games, demos or any videos you dont need. The 250gig edition is very slow at injecting content, however it will get there in the end.

    If you have a USB drive you could format it for use in the USB (an option in the memory management screen), copy all your content on to that, take the 20gb drive out, put the 250gig drive in then copy the content to the 250gig drive. Ofcourse that depends how big of a usb drive you have.

    Also don't forget to restore partition 2, that is needed to play Xbox 1 games.

    Its all explained in the tutorial here anyway: https://digiex.net/computing-sectio...360-how-hack-250gb-sata-drive-work-360-a.html

    Any problems just ask, you have done the hard bit (getting the pc to flash the security sector) so the rest should be straight forward, maybe just a bit time consuming.

    I have been looking around the net and on the Xbox site it seems that it may be posible to transfer via the xbox without the transfer disc

    I dont want to mess the HDD up again but it looks as if when i plug the 250 into the top of the xbox and then plug the 20gig into the usb with my transfer cable i can just go into the memory section and transfer his content

    i can and will use Xplorer 360 if i have to, i have it on my pc , i find that Xport is easier to use , could i use this ?

    Thats how it should work, as your last hard drive was messed doing that I didn't want to suggest it again, you can transfer content like that with the latest dashboard update so I dont see why it wouldn't work.

    Xport should also work, however I had problems with that not dumping all my content and corrupting my newly hacked 250gig drive at the time. Im sure what ever caused that problem has probably been fixed, I just stick to Xplorer as it gets the job done for me.
