connecting the hard drive
you can connect to your 360's hard drive via any of the means below (this list is NOT exhaustive)
this is a device that sits between your xbox 360 and the hard drive and has a USB port on the back for pc connectivity
similar to xsata it is basically a docking stand for your 360 hard drive. it sits on your desk and plugs into 2 usb ports on your pc (1 for power
one for data)
3> usb to sata adapter same to the Xport but will need you to get the 360 out of its caddy (hence voiding its warranty)
4> external usb sata hard drive caddy same as above (in 3) but has external power supply so only uses 1 usb port
putting the on the xbox 360
1> once you have connected your 360 hard drive your pc open up xplorer 360
2> click on the drive menu
3> click on open
4> click on Harddrive or Memcard
5> the hard drive will then be displayed as 3 partitions in the left hand column
6> click on partition 3
7> click on compatibility
8> click on xbox 1
9> click on the TDATA folder and drag your save folder from the TDATA folder on your desktop into the TDATA folder in xplorer 360
10> click on the UDATA folder and drag your save folder from the UDATA folder on your desktop into the UDATA folder in xplorer 360
11> congratulations you have now transfered your save

These are instructions on how to put one of the xbox roster saves on to a 360. At present, this is the best information available. I
do not know how well the instructions work as I do not have a 360. This is here because of the number of e-mails I've received on
transferring the saves. I hope this helps. Thanks to pdg44 on Operation Sports for the information.
To Get Rosters onto your 360:
What you NEED:
1) A Transfer Cable and it's software (you can download xport360 and xplorer360 for free just google it so no need to worry about that)
2) An xbox 360
3) Copy of NFL 2k5
4) A computer or laptop running windows (macs do not work)
First, before you even think about updating rosters, there is no other way to get them onto your 360 HD but to use a transfer cable to hook up
your HDD to your CPU. There are 3 cables you can get. Xport and Xsata are 2 cables you can purchase. Best bet is online on amazon or ebay,
but I know if your lucky you can find one at circuit city, gamestop, bestbuy, etc. I suggest you look around...
The third cable is the Microsoft HDD transfer cable which is free. In order to get this you will need to call 1800-4my-xbox and ask them to send you
the cable through mail. I know many people have had a hard time getting xbox to send it to them because the purpose of these cables are to
transfer your files from the 20gb HDD to the 120gb HDD. Sometimes they ask for proof of purchase but i know people that have gotten it sent to
them no problem. People who purchase a bigger HDD for their 360 are the ones who need this cable.
IF YOU DO GET THIS CABLE YOU MUST DOWNLOAD XPLORER360 or XPORT360*recommended*
For xport360 v1.07 click here:
YOU CANNOT USE A DATEL TRANSFER KIT BECAUSE YOU CANNOT STORE XBOX 1 GAMESAVES ONTO A 360 MEMORY CARD. IT USES
A DIFFERENT FILE SYSTEM.

GETTING A CABLE IS THE BIGGEST ISSUE!! Once you have that then the rest is easy!
To get FREE rosters go to:
Best and easiest way to find any roster your looking for. Search around, read file descriptions, and pick a file to download...
(dedicated roster makers also post their work in the rosters section of the 2k5 forums)
How to transfer rosters onto 360....
*IF YOU HAVE NEVER PLAYED NFL 2K5 ON YOUR 360 BEFORE:
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SOME SORT OF NFL 2K5 GAMESAVE ON YOUR XBOX360 HD (ex. save your VIP or settings just so you have the nfl2k5
folder on your harddrive that you can open later on when you transfer roster to your harddrive)*
1) hook up hard drive to your computer using transfer cable
2) download roster file
3) click Open roster file
4) unzip file ( to do this click "extract all files" in folder tasks which is on left side of window. extraction wizard will pop up. hit next, next, then finish. A
new window will open up with the unzipped files. You will use these extracted files to drag and drop)
5) double click to open UDATA folder
6) double click to open next folder (should say something like "53450030")
7) there you will see a single folder labeled with numbers and letters and 4 .xbx files. ALL YOU NEED IS THE NUMBERED FOLDER. NOT THE .xbx
FILES. THAT FOLDER IS THE ONLY THING YOU WILL DRAG onto the 360 hard drive....
8) Open the "xport 360/xplorer360" or w.e program you have, depending on what transfer cable your using.
9) A window will come up and you will select your HDD (it will most likely come up as "Device 1: XBox 360 Hard Disk Drive Size 20.00 GB) and then
click "OK" or "OPEN"
10) Now select "Xbox 360 Devices Connected to My Computer"
11) then select "device 1:xbox 360 hard disk drive size 20.00 gb"
12) select: partition 3> compatability> xbox1> UDATA> 53450030 (this is why you needed a gamesave, that is the nfl 2k5 gamesave)
13)Finally drag the folder mentioned in step 6 to the right side of the window with all the other gamesaves listed. (It should automatically drop in
and copy into the HD)
Put the harddrive back on you 360, load the game, go to settings, and load the new save. Enjoy!
ANOTHER SET OF INSTRUCTIONS:
* Firstly: I have been asked a number of times how one can transfer their rosters via a usb drive. The easy answer
is that you can't. Sorry. Although the game is backwards compatible, it doesn't take advantage of the thumb drive.
