How to transfer data from Xbox 360 to computer? Answered

Picture of

Okay, I have fairly recently got me an xbox 360 and halo 3 (this game is epic :P) and taken loads of screen shots but when I tried transferring the pics to the bungie site to download it onto my computer, I am shocked that I need gold membership to do this.

I then tried downloading the pics onto a USB stick from my xbox and transferring it to my computer, it didn't work either, because (I guess) my xbox has reformatted my USB stick so the data on it cannot be recognized by normal computers? Very clever microsoft! :(

So are there any other ways I can get around this without having to get gold membership?

Thanks!

These are xbox moding tools to mod games and stuff, basically cheats but u can also access the xbox 360 storage on the Flash drive so you can get your pictures and stuff

If you dont want to buy a data transfer kit you can: Extract the hard drive (will void the warranty - but who needs on on a hdd?). This will require you undoing some screws and you specifically need a torx 6 or 8 screwdriver (I get mixed up as one is used on the xbox itself). Then hook it up to your computer with a standard sata cable and power couplet (used in all modern machine for hard drives). You will then need to access the data through a program such as xplorer360 (http://www.megaupload.com/?d=S3YK7HC2) From there you just need to browse around and find the files. Also possible to give yourself achievements with the right program

I have tried this, it don't work. It's because the Xbox 360 uses a different format files that a windows or mac or linux pc can't read. Transfer cable is about 15 bucks, but you would also need a special program to read the Xbox 360's data file formats. Hope this helps! :D

Sure you could buy one of those, but you can do it for a lot cheaper. All you have to do is get a 3+gb USB and sync it to the Xbox!

Buy another game. Most of them come with 2 day membership. Do it then....

Or if you're gonna buy another game for a 2 day pass, you might as well just buy a year of Gold Membership. Halo is a lot more fun online anyways.

Yeah, your gonna have to get a transfer cable. Look it up on amazon.com they are cheap. But other than that you should get gold membership, that's really the whole reason for halo 3 and other games.

I use XTAF. Xbox data is formatted differently so even if you put it on a usb drive it is still in Xbox format. You can also use it to back up and transfer gamesaves.
