| | How do you use an external Xbox 360 hard drive on another xbox 360?
I'm at a friend's house and he has an extra xbox (one of the newer version) I use an old xbox 360, and I brought a hard drive and a transfer cable thinking I could just plug the transfer cable in and use my hard drive on his xbox. It's telling me that it'd have to delete everything to be able to format it for the xbox. Is there a way I could use my hard drive without having to delete everything off of it? I figured I could just take everything off of it, save it to his desktop, format the hard drive, and then put everything back on, but I don't want to do that if there's an easier way.
