ok so i cant use back up utility as i get the error 8001002A
so i manually copied the the games on my saved games menu.
but what do i do to game data utility?
do i need that as well?
No, the backup utility is the only way to copy your game data. If you can't use it, you'll have to reinstall any game you want to play on the new system.
You'll also want to double check that none of your game saves are copy protected, because if they are they won't work on the new system the way you're doing it.
I just got that- $65 shipped for me, and I had to pay tax.
