    Sorry to bump again, but Im still after a cable if anyone is willing to do a lend for a few days? Same offer stands if anybody requires a few quid for postage/hassle etc

    I just dug mine out this morning while I was trying to find some stuff under the pile of crap on my desk.

    @TWIGishere

    Sorry to bother you but I've got the same problem - my 360 decided to die the day I bought Mass Effect 2. I'm going to buy an Elite later on today so would it be alright if I could have the transfer cable and CD after you? I'll PM my address to you later if that's ok.

    Oh, and anyone else who's reading this needs it after I'm done - I'll be more than happy to send them along. £11 for transfering your own data, to a console you've already paid more than £180+ is taking the piss...

    Anyway, thanks very much.

    Are you offering out my cable?!

    ;)

    I'm happy for it to do the rounds, as long as it doesn't disappear into the ether.... I want to be able to continue to use it to do good deeds of allowing people to transfer their data, without it becoming a free item for untrustworthy people.

    So as long as it doesn't get sent to any untrustworthy people, I'm good with it.

    Are you trustworthy?

    Well, I'm planning to continue playing Mass Effect 2 using my Paragon character from the first one - is that trustworthy enough? ;)

    Seriously though - many apologies, I must have misread the thread as a "take it, pass along" sort of thing. But if I could borrow your cable and CD at some point that would be great. I'm going to swap my Hard Drive out of my old 360 and put it in the Elite, so there's not really any immediate rush to transfer the data over (apart from not having space to install the whole game on the old 20Gb) so whenever it's free it'd be much appreciated. To be honest, it was a stretch to afford buying the Elite in any case, and £11 on top of everything else is just a bit much...

    Again, many thanks.

    I don't see any reason not to pass it on, I have lost far more valuable things to acts of trust before!

    Besides which, we'll have Errol_Flynn's name and address, so we can always pop round to 'collect' it if necessary! ;)

    Hmm, sounds like it... might be worth just giving it a bit of a clean, if you haven't tried this already.

    There are several different 'versions' of the disks, however, but I don't know if any of them would be incompatible enough to show the symptoms you describe.

    Madder Max-
    Don't you have to boot from the disk for it to work? Can't remember 100% as it's been a year since I used it. Try turning off and restarting the XBox with it in the tray...

    Many thanks to Rich72 for the loan, his cable should be winging its way back to him shortly.

    If someone would be super kind enough to keep me in mind when a cable starts doing the rounds again that'd be ace.

    Will return it rec'd post and all that jazz.

    I've got one courtesy of our very own PatrickEwing. It'll be available when I work up the courage to use it :)

    Oh and regs only...nothing personal, but a regular will see this thread being bumped and pass it on :)

    i can understand why people would be wary of sending to a non reg, i'd be the same
    but i'm just here for help, as soon as i'm done with the cable i will send it on, and keep everything updated on here as i go along

    It's my own stupid fault, I should have sent it via recorded delivery.

    Does anyone else have a cable they can send TWIGishere now that mine has disappeared into the fecking ether please?

    sorry to the two people I missed requesting the cable. I'm out of action for another week or so.

    Thanks to OfNoConsequence for getting the cable back so quickly and thanks for the "drink"... most appreciated.

    Hi all,

    I've just created an account especially to see if I could be included on the data transfer cable sharing. After a good bit of time spent looking at different options (ms directly, eBay etc) I decided that considering the price of these discs a free cable might not be too hard to
    get - wrong!

    Absolute same philosophy as above - I'll pay p+p both ways!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    can anyone help? I have a 20 gig hdd. Missus buys me a 120 gig hdd and transfer kit off ebay (cable and disc). Disc 'mixed media disc' in 360 when set up as diagram shows so no joy.

    Connect it via laptop and disc not recognosed. So....I go to the website, download the software and start moving data fron 20 gig to laptop.....to then transfer to 120gig.

    BHour later almost done when message says not enough hard drive space. Check laptop and there is 32gig free. 18 gig on 20 gig hdd.

    Any ideas? Any help appreciated.
