i all. i bought san andreas from the xbox live on demand dervice and want to transfer my game save to usb. is this even possible?

the closest i get is it wanting to copy the whole game and the save, basically everything in the san andreas folder!

other games allow me to transfer just the game save, why not san andreas?!

To check it you'll have to remove the HDD from the 360 and insert the USB drive.

If the GTA Save shows up on the USB drive then you'll have it on USB.
To extract it from there you'll need to use USBXTAF and backup the Compatibility folder.

However I don't know if it works with a USB drive but it does work with the HDD itself.

well now im more confused! the usb just has the original whole game file.

i tryed it without the HDD in and it said something like "you need HDD to play original xbox games"

id checked the HDD and all that was on it was my save file, no larger original game file.

i plugged in HDD and it worked....so is the game save still on HDD but the actual game has been moved to USB?! still doesnt help me transfer my game save :(

also, i noticed all my arcade game downloads are only "play trial" via usb and they prompt me to unlock full game which iv already done! does that mean if i get a new console i have to go online to get them back!? i cant transfer them? grrr

I think that Xbox saves are locked to the HDD (old xbox saved everything to the HDD)

So your only option is to get a transfer cable and hook it up to your PC and backup the Compatibility folder.

    Was it ever operational?

    Costing a ton of jobs, environmental disaster, loss of a ton of money
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They still ship the oil, just in trucks instead of a pipe
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Okay so the pipeline (extension) was never operational, never worked, and shipping that oil was never cheaper because of it.

    They do this stock investment thing Veho called futures trading

    It's complex but yeah in spite of it not being operational (yet) they had planned on it being so

    They do this thing called "counting their chickens before they hatch".

    A strong hunch of mine is that a cheap oil pipe from Alaska would have hurt the middle East and lowered prices. If I was a big investor in oil, I would probably not want that at all.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah and the truth is oil companies reported record profits yet there's no room to reduce oil prices at the pump because, um, economy.
