  1. Not able to transfer game files, why?


    I've been bothered by this for a long time but I can't seem to understand why it won't.

    My issue is with the Left 4 Dead series and another game that will not transfer or copy to USB or another memory device for my Xbox 360 and I wish to know why. The error I get is: This item cannot be transferred between profiles.

    I plan on getting a new harddrive but this is the issue I'm dealing with currently with these 3 games. Does anyone know why I can't and/or how to fix this?

    :)

    Going to buy a new Xbox, don't want to lose all my data...

    Your files will not be in a readable state by your PC via the USB stick. This is intentional. Your best bet is to use the official transfer cable, as it will be able to transfer files that are not able to be copied nor moved any other way.

    gears 3 bata transfer

    Unless it's been deleted there is a file save labeled "Gears of War 3 Beta" under:

    My Xbox > System Settings > Memory > Hard Drive > Games

    You should be able to use a transfer cable or flash drive (or whatever you're using to transfer your data) to transfer this file.

    Not able to transfer game files, why?

    Some developers lock game saves so they can't be moved via a usb or other memory devices.

    I think they will move if you use a transfer cable when you get your new hard drive but i'm not 100% sure.

    Transfering saves from 2 accounts question

    Yes, you can play a game under your friend's profile and then transfer the data to your account using a storage device.

    Sadly, no, you won't be able to keep the achievements you have earned on your friend's account.
    BUT, and this is important, you will not be able to unlock achievements on that transferred save file since the file's owner has changed.
