How to Transfer From an Xbox 360 to a PC

Since Xbox 360 hard drives have limited space there may come a time when you need to transfer your files to an external source like your PC hard drive. Xbox has built in menus to help you copy or move files to a memory unit, USB device or a PC. You can also use these menus to delete files and increase the amount of free space on your Xbox 360. There is also a Transfer Content Wizard to handle moving multiple files between storage devices.


1. Connect one end of your USB cable to a port on your Xbox 360 and the other end to a port on your PC while they are both turned off.

2. Turn on your Xbox 360 console and your PC. Once your Dashboard loads, use your controller to select "My Xbox" and then "System Settings." On this page select "Memory."

3. Highlight the storage device that has the files you want to copy and press "A." In this case you would choose your Xbox 360 hard drive. Then choose the type of content you would like to transfer and the item.

4. Use your controller to select "Copy, Move or Delete" and then specify the storage device you would like to transfer the item to.

5. Transfer multiple files by following steps 1 and 2 as described above. Then select your Xbox 360 hard drive with your controller and press "Y" to activate the Transfer Content Wizard.

6. Highlight the destination device with your controller, your PC in this case, and press "A". Then select the content you want to transfer and press "A" if you would like to view individual items. If viewing files individually, press "B" to go back to the content type screen. From that screen highlight "Start" and press "A" to begin the transfer.

7. Shut down both your Xbox 360 and your PC when the transfer is finished. Disconnect your USB cable when both are powered down.

 Tips & Warnings

    * Contact Xbox Support if you have unexpected errors during the transfer process.
    * The Transfer Content Wizard will start automatically if you attach an Xbox 360 Transfer Cable to your console.
    * Make sure you have enough space on your PC to fit everything you would like to transfer.
    * The process may take hours to complete depending on how much you transfer and how large your files are.
