    Transferring game installations/updates/files between Xbox one consoles


    I live in a regional area with very poor internet connections (with low download limits due to wireless only connection) to some homes.

    My friend who just got an xbox console wants to update games, but can't because of the large downloads required. I have already installed and updated some of these games on my own console.

    Is it possible to plug my external HDD into another console and transfer the installion/update to that consoles internal HDD?

    When i tried plugging my HDD into the other console it recognised the HDD as being available for use, but showed no games or apps currently installed on it (though it showed it 20% full, indicating my installed games were there but not available)

    :)

    Transferring disc exported songs to a new 360?

    Transferring isn't an issue as the transfer cable will transfer everything over with the exception of game installs.

    Hard Drive Transfer Kit (Xbox 360): Amazon.co.uk: PC & Video Games

    However you will want to use the license transfer tool on the Microsoft site otherwise you would have to be online all the time to use the purchased content.

    Xbox.com | System Use - Transferring Content Licenses to a New Console

    Edit: If you are selling the original hard drive with the console and are then unable to do the transfer then you will have to stick your gamertag, save games and the RB1 export files on a memory device before selling and then do the licence transfer on new console and download everything else..

    installed games on old console, safe to delete? can i just install from disc again on new console?

    [quote user="ColdEagle86"]hi dumb question but ive just noticed that after using the hdd transfer kit from MS that i still have some games listed on the console the file sizes look about right for installed to disk. and i think it even says installed xbox
    360 game when you go under storage for each one.

    it says underneath that you can not earn achievements / use this etc if i don't own the item. do i need to manually copy these files via usb stick and add them to my new console or can i just whack in the game disk and install them to hdd on the new console
    and everything will be hunky dory?[/quote]Your description sounds like you're confusing installed games and save game files.



    The transfer software built into the console will not move games installed from DVD. The old disc-based software will. If you used the console to do the transfer, no installed games should have transferred (6-7GB in size). If you used the disc, then the
    installed games were transferred. Unfortunately. games installed from DVD cannot be Moved between storage devices, let alone consoles. They'll have to be deleted (just the install file, not the saves and profiles).

    No. Files can only be transferred between consoles. They can't be transferred to a pc.

    Saved game files not transferring between Xbox one's consoles

    I would think this has to do with an Xbox Live connection. The Backwards Compatible game is emulating the Xbox 360 and that includes the Xbox 360 Cloud Save system, which is a different pipeline from the Xbox One, though a similar idea. So when you're
    in the game at your friends house, you should be able to press the "Menu" and "View" buttons (start and select) to pull up the 360 dashboard in the game, and then do some cursory functions via that dashboard, and possibly force the sync of the 360 cloud saves?
    You might need to look at what storage device the saves are set to while on that console., but I can't remember if that is possible in BC games, as I think it only uses Cloud Saves.

    So all that to say I think that it should be saving your 360 BC game saves to the cloud, but if it's not properly connected to Xbox Live, those saves might not be getting uploaded properly. I also remember those save being pretty big, so while you're in
    the game, might want to check available space of your Xbox 360 Cloud Storage, again, different from your Xbox One or console storage.

    EDIT: I want to point out that, while I was responding, ArminatorX described what I was trying to say in a much more clear and consistent manner

    Saved game files not transferring between Xbox one's consoles

    Just be aware that saving Xbox 360 backwards compatible titles is a bit more complicated than "native" Xbox One games.

    The Xbox 360 emulated game has no concept of multitasking or being "suspended", so if you end your Oblivion session like a normal Xbox One game (e.g. simply turning off the console, or pressing the Xbox Button to switch to another game on the Start screen),
    then the console might not be able to get the emulated game in such a state, that it can upload a consistent savegame.

    If you want to make sure your Xbox 360 games are saved and uploaded properly, make sure that you save the game with the in-game save option, make sure that the save indicator for the game has disappeared, and then quit out of the Xbox 360 game by pressing
    the Xbox button, pressing the Menu button on the main game tile showing the Xbox 360 game, and then choosing "Quit" from the menu.

    When you quit the game like this, the Xbox knows the game is now in a consistent state to be synced to the cloud, and if your friends console is online, it should then sync your savegame as well to the cloud, so you should be able to continue where you left
    off at your friends house.

    Just make sure, that if you played on your own console in the mean time, and updated the save, that you don't downlaod that state to your friends console.

    Instead play on your friends console and create a newer savegame, that should be "newer" than the last time your console synced.

    Saved game files not transferring between Xbox one's consoles

    Hi there,

    just to be sure, your friends console is connected to Xbox Live?

    If so then as far as I know it should synchronize with Xbox Live, but keep in mind that this can take some time.

    If you still have a Xbox 360, can you check if you see the latest save game there?

    Let us know the results
