    At the moment my 20GB is okay but I heard with the new update for the 360, I'll be able to install the games to the Xbox HDD. My question is, if I buy a new 120gb HDD, can I redownload the Xbox Live game or am I better off buying a transfer cable?

    I'm sure you can redownload it, it isn't like you are changing Consoles so it would still notice you have downloaded said game and let you download it again.

    EDIT: Infact, reading this has got me wondering why microsoft made the transfer thingy-ma-bob if you can just redownload the stuff. I'll leave this for another 'Temper to answer.

    I'm not 100% sure.

    EDIT #2:

    Noticed this from the site i linked to:

    EDIT #3:

    You can get the cable for free

    I recently got one of those 60gb Xbox 360s, and I cant even play the Games my bro just downloaded on there...it pisses me off, cuz my 20gb never had no problems. Like, he brought his mem card and Gamertag over, and redownloaded some and copied some over its just that Every other account cant access the Games. Any Help?

    If you buy a 120GB HDD, it comes with a cable. It switches everything over, so its like nothing ever happened to your box.

    Pretty sure it would let you download again.

    OK, just so you know, you can redownload your software but it gets deleted as soon as you turn off the console. If you transfer it, you won't have this problem
