Sorry if this has been answered, but I couldn't find a definitive answer for recent users. I am unable to get my Xbox360 worlds to transfer to my new Xbox One S. I log into Minecraft on the 360, click Play, select the world I want, click Y, select the option to upload to the transfer slot, and then click OK when the progress bar finishes. When I log into Minecraft on the One S, there is no option to download from the transfer slot. There's a button that says Sync Old Worlds, but click on that does nothing. So the question I have is does this functionality still exist and it's broken, or was it removed but MS left behind the upload function?
According to the Xbox Support guy I chatted with, the world transfer functionality ended at the same time that the DLC transfer offer expired in February 2016. (See link Transfer from Xbox 360 to Xbox One) The way that article reads to me is that the DLC transfer expired, but the world transfer still works, but I could be wrong. The thing that throws me is that if the transfer capability expired in February 2016, why does the option to upload to an Xbox One transfer slot still exist in the Xbox360 version in December 2017?
Both versions of Minecraft are up to date as are each console. I've tried it with both my gamertag and my son's. Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if it's to let me know that I'm going to lose all the work we've put into our Xbox 360 worlds.
Thanks in advance!
I did some reading on reddit and discovered that there are two versions of Minecraft for the Xbox One at play now: the original Minecraft for Xbox One and the latest, which is apparently the Better Together edition. I guess the version I have is the Better Together edition as we bought the Limited Edition Minecraft console with a redemption code. Is the original MC for Xbox One the difference? If I were to purchase an old disc, would I then be able to bring over the 360 worlds?
Do you own the old Xbox one Edition of Minecraft? If you own it, you can transfer the worlds. The legacy version/old version is no longer sold. Even if you own it, you can't transfer DLC packs, only worlds.
If you don't own the legacy version, you may ask your friend and see if they own the legacy version, then convert and send it back to you.
Thanks. This afternoon after a quick stop at GameStop, I discovered exactly what you said and was able to convert the worlds from the 360 to the One S and then into the latest version of Minecraft. For what it's worth, neither 4JStudios/Mojang nor Microsoft were of any assistance in this matter. When I get some time to sit down and organize my thoughts, I'm going to put together a current How-To for this, because it should be as difficult as I found it to be. Granted, my odyssey started with just trying to make an offline profile an Xbox Live account...
So after getting an Xbox One for my kids for Christmas, I was frustrated in attempting to transfer their Xbox 360 worlds ibto the new Minecraft we just purchased for the One today.
I go ally read about the transfer slot of the 360 game and did that. But no luck, as this thread says.
So...can you tell me what Minecraft title I need to purchase for the Xbox One to transfer their worlds, eventually to this latest version?! We've all spent -years- in these worlds and don't want to lose them.
I have the same problem. I read on mojangs site that they made a deal with Microsoft to handle Minecraft compatibility issues. After spending several hours with 3 different, patient members of Microsoft customer support they've given up as I cannot even transfer a brand new world using the published process (so it's not a corrupted save). They've referred me back to Mojang now, I'll post if I get any progress.
I bought my dad the Xbox One S Adventure Bundle for his birthday. We've been having trouble figuring out how to transfer his worlds from his 360 to the new console. After reading this thread I have learneed that it's not possible to transfer from the 360 to the new One version. I have the original One version on my Xbox.
My question is would it be possible for my dad to sign into his account on my Xbox to transfer the worlds to the original version then be able to get on his Xbox and transfer the worlds there?
This is such a mess and absolutely ridiculous! Why can't we just save the worlds to a thumb drive and transfer them that way or just save them to the cloud like other games?!
