    Help! Can anyone who has recieved an Elite Migration Cable from MS please send me theirs a.s.a.p? I printed off the pdf form from the xbox website and sent it off on launch day.

    A few days ago I read that a few people have recieved their cable from Microsoft as well as an email informing them that it has been sent. I had not recieved an email as such.

    So I waited a few days until today when I phoned their customer support office who had no record of me sending a form to them and therefore no cable was sent out. They agreed to send me one but it will take 10 working days.

    The reasons for this request are:

    1) I am on annual leave next week, and I hope to play Halo 3 on my HDTV via HDMI

    2) There is a good chance that I will miss out on the special trade in offer from GAME who will give me £140 for (deadline is 30th September).

    So please can anyone lend me theirs, and I will send it back via special delivery as soon as I get it! I am aware that there is a elite cable 'bike' thread but I will be well down on the list! Please help an avid gamer :rolleyes:

    Send me a PM - looks like you've missed the boat in the bike thread. I will send you mine from my 120GB HDD kit.

    The only condition is, once you've used it you are then responsible for sending my kit to another person waiting in the AVForums bike thread.

    I just want to say a BIG THANKS to rimmep1 for generously sacrificing his migration cable and to sukhy5 for forwarding it on so promptly/securely! :smashin:

    Got the cable this morning, transfer took just under an hour (estimated 1hr 20 mins), no problems at all! :thumbsup:

    I've posted the cable on to superga1999, who's currently the last in our little 'bike' list.

    If you'd like the migration cable next you need to send him a PM sharpish, else he'll probably pass it onto the main list.

    Thanks again guys! :clap:

    Update! Migration kit status.

    Currently in transit to myself (cheers Gavin1969!)

    After I've received it I will send it to JonnyLarge. I will send you a PM to get your details once I've finished with it. I'd imagine this to be Monday or Tuesday next week.

    Superga1999 sent me a message today letting me know that he received the kit today and shall be sending it to me tomorrow.

    DragonUk I'll be getting in touch with you asking for your address if you still want it and I'll send it to you the day after I get it.

    Be sure to pass it on to the person who wants it next and lets keep this going guys, because like someone said before me, the spirit here is great.Admittedly I only came here looking for the kit, but I think I'll stay here if the people here are this good to each other. :smashin:

    Hi before I ask if I can join in the kind offer of the pass the cable that is going on, I was wondering if any body can answer something for me?

    If I were to buy an Elite 360 could I not just download my xbox live account details from xbox live, under recover account details,and any arcade games I have downloaded? I dont mind if I loose my game saves:)or is the migration cable the only way to go?

    Blockbuster has a good deal with the Elite plus Halo3 for £299, my trade in for my premium is £160 ( my 3rd and I dont think this one is too well!! so trade in is right for me), but, would then of course loose my hard drive in the process?

    Its a daft situation if you want to trade your old console in:thumbsdow
