Transfer Guide by Dragonskin
You can use a USB pen drive with the latest dashboard update to transfer this option file. This is the best, quickest and cheapest method of transferring an option file. There are also several different products you can buy, each have their positives and negatives, but they all do the same job pretty much. There's no real need to purchase them if you have a 1GB USB pen drive.
USB Transfer Guide
What you need

A USB storage device - Follow Step 3 for instructions how to configure a USB stick for use on a 360
Before you start, it's best to have a PES 2011 save file already on your USB storage device. The quickest way is to start up PES 2011 with your USB storage device plugged in. Once the game has loaded up, it asks you to select a storage device. Select your USB device and the game will save the system settings file to your USB device.
Download an option file and use WinRar to extract the file. You will end up with something like this
Plug an Xbox 360 compatible storage device into your PC.
Use WinRar to extract the Xtaf Explorer program from the .rar file
Run the program and click File --> Open Drive
Wait for a second or two and some items should appear in the left window.
Click Data Partition --> Content and you should get a screen something like this.
The folder E0000..... is your Gamer Profile. Click the plus sign and you should see a folder called 4B4E0837. This is the PES 2011 save folder.
In the right window, right click on the folder called 00000001 and select delete.
Still in the right window, right click and select inject folder
Navigate your way to where you saved the downloaded 360 option file and select the folder called 00000001
Give it a minute to import all the files (the program may appear to freeze, this is normal as it is importing a few hundred files). After the program has finished, your 00000001 folder should look something like this
Click File --> Close Drive
Disconnect your USB Storage Device from your PC and plug it into your 360.
On your 360, go to System Settings --> Memory
Choose Memory Unit --> Games. Highlight PES 2011 and press Y.
Select copy and choose Hard Drive.
That's it! Simple. The process should only take a minute or two
How big does the USB stick have to be?
A minimum of 1gb for it to be recognized by the 360

The Microsoft Data Migration cable.
You can get it free direct from Microsoft if you have two serial numbers from two 360 consoles. If you can't get hold of the numbers, you can buy it from dealextreme for around £5(delivery is around 2 weeks usually) or try ebay where delivery would be quicker. A word of caution that these 'unofficial' cables won't work if you buy a new console and want to transfer data from your old hard drive to your new one, only the official cable works for that purpose.
If you can't get hold of one, then there are other option available to you:
First up is the Datel Data Transfer Kit. This only works with memory cards and costs around £15. A word of caution: It doesn't work with Vista and might not work properly will all memory cards.
Next up is the Datel XSata. Personally I would avoid buying this product as it has more negatives than positives. You connect it by plugging it inbetween your console and your hard drive. This isn't an easy fit and once on, you might want to leave it like that. It also requires the console to be directly next to your PC, which again isn't the most practical thing ever. It does have a pretty blue light though!
The final option I'm going to mention is the Datel 360 Xport. I used this device myself and it works absolutely fine.
It works with both hard drives and memory cards, and can be operated completely separate from your console. It works by plugging your 360 hard drive, or memory card, into the docking station and connecting it via USB to your PC.
All the above tools conveniently work with the same software, so I only have to write the one guide!
Download the latest version of the Xport 360 software here
Install it to your PC, connect your hard drive or memory card up to your chosen device and do the following:
Run the Xport 360 software. It should prompt on launch to select a device. Select your hard drive or memory card.
Navigate to partition 3, and select the correct gamer profile
Find folder 4B4E0837(PES 2012) and go into subfolder 00000001
If you've already saved some files, you should see them there.
Now shrink your xport software window so it takes up one side of the screen and on the other side of the screen have the folder with the option file in open.
To be on the safe side, backup any Master League, Cup, BaL, replay saves etc before transferring any files across.
Simply drag & drop to transfer the files to the Xport. You may have to transfer the files one at a time otherwise the program might crash.
Once all the files have been transferred, disconnect the hard drive from the hardware, plug it back onto the Xbox and load up PES. The option file should now be applied.
Whenever I try to drag and drop a file onto the hard drive, I get a warning symbol which stops me.
If you're using Vista, you need to turn User Account Control off. Go to Control Panel - User Accounts - Turn User Account Control on or off and untick the box.
My memory card isn't recognized!
Before connecting a memory card to your computer, save any file to it on your 360. Now when you connect it up, the Xport software should recognize it.
The program keeps crashing after transferring x amount of files
If this keeps happening, transfer a safe amount of files that doesn't make it crash, disconnect from your PC and connect back to your Xbox 360. Run PES and create a new save(a replay save for example). Then reconnect your storage device to your PC and try to transfer the rest of the files.
Xport is rubbish!
Try using the Xplorer software , or just buy a USB stick and do it the easy way
