  • bigalgizmo Sep 30, 2008

    I don't think you can delete anything on a x-box 360 hard drive. I might be wrong [ I'm not on line ]

  • bigalgizmo Oct 01, 2008

    I'LL try to contact x-box live. I don't know how to do it. I know it's in my x-box literature I received with game. I'm really upset that I might loose all the hard work I put into my character. my x-box was bought in 6/08 and I play everyday. I like to take a monent to thank all the e-mails I received over my x-b0x problem and I'll let you all know what the problem is when we get this fixed.

  • bigalgizmo Oct 01, 2008

    No , maybe some kind of glitch .I can't even get into the game now. GTA4 works fine on the x-box.

Update: See This Please as the Process has been made easier

License Migration

A. The inability to access your Oblivion Plugin content on Xbox 360 unless you are connected to Xbox Live is related to the way the license usage and restrictions are handled by Microsoft. Please refer to this article for additional information and workarounds.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/911198/en-us

When you download content from Xbox Live Marketplace, that content is licensed to the console you downloaded it on and the profile you downloaded it with. The console license allows anyone to use that content on THAT console, online or off. The profile license allows you to use the content on any console, as long as you're signed in to Xbox Live (the reason you have to be signed in to Xbox Live is that your profile has to be validated with the service).

For example, if you try to play your new Xbox Live Arcade game offline on a different console, you may find that it only plays in demo mode. This is because the console is not the console to which the game is licensed, and your profile can't be validated until you sign in. To play the full version on this other console, you have to sign in to Xbox Live.

For Oblivion gamers, this means that if you took your Xbox hard drive to a friends house to download the content using your own Xbox Live gamertag, the plugins may be licensed to your gamertag, but they are also tied to that specific console. As soon as you take the hard drive back to your console, if you are not connected and logged into Xbox Live with your gamertag, the content will not work. The same issue may occur if you have to replace or repair your xbox.

So, what that means is, if you have an Xbox 360 that is NOT connected to the internet, and you wish to play Oblivion with the Plugins, you can do so, but will need to take your ENTIRE Xbox 360 to an internet connection, log into Xbox Live with YOUR gamertag, and download the plugins. Then you can play the game and use the plugins on THAT Xbox 360 without being connected to Xbox Live.

If you had your console repaired or exchanged after you had downloaded the plugins, you would need to contact Microsoft Xbox support at 1-800-4MY-XBOX to determine ways to transfer the license to your new console.

    Oblivion uses the Xbox 360 hard drive extensively to cache (copy and reuse) game data. This is done to optimize all loading the game does. It has been found in rare cases on some Xbox 360s that the cached data can get overly fragmented. This exhibits itself by the game taking a long time to load anything from menus, dialogue, sounds, objects, levels, and more.

    To solve this problem, reset your Xbox, and hold down the A button as the game is booting up. If any button is held while Oblivion is loading, it will clear its hard drive cache, and create a new one. Once you see the “Bethesda Softworks” logo video, the game is already loaded, and the cache should have been cleared.

    Note, this does not effect your game in any way other than loading. You will not lose any saved data.

If it does not load a game save, then simply the saved game file is bad , that's all.

See if you have a previous save of the game, iotherwise there may be no way to recover the bad saved file.

First off you will need to connect to Xbox Live and update it. If you have had a hotmail account for more then 30 days you can get xbox live for 30 days free. Use it to update your games. If you still need assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thanks,

    Like i said if you have had a hotmail account for 30 days then you can create a new live account free for 30 days. Update the game and see if you still have the problem. Then the problem is either in the disc or the save itself. If you still need assistance please let me know. Please take a moment to reconsider your rating and accept and rate my solution appropriately.
    Thanks,

If your console isn't online you should conect it so that it may download patches for your game. You may have also gotten corruption of the game's hard drive files. Try to remove the game from your console's hard drive then rerun the game as if it were the first time you use it. Not sure how this is done as I don't own a 360.

    I would look into getting your XBOX on the Internet as I've said in my other post. Bethesda has certainly patched their game, downloading the patch will most likely solve your issues.

Since two different disc and still have same problem, you may want to consider updating the firmware of your XBOX , because sometimes eventhough some other game are working fine the problem is still with the firmware of the xbox..

Hope that helps............

Too much load in the inventory is the problem for sure .remaining everything is perfect just delete some load or copy /paste on some other drive will solve your problem for sure.dont worry as this is a common problem faced by many xbox users.

One problem specific to the oblivion for Xbox 360 is that the cached game data can become fragmented, leading to a gradual deterioration of game performance, including lagging and screen freezes. To fix this problem, you need to press and hold the A key on the controller while the game is first loading (up until the "Bethesda Softworks" logo appears). For more information, see Oblivion-Fragmented-Cache-Data-Fix

    It is possible to transfer the savefiles to PC so that you can get them back later. However this is a bit too lengthy procedure.
    Before starting, you will need to purchase:


    • An Xbox 360 memory unit (MU), for example a 64MB unit.

    • A Datel Xbox 360 transfer kit (and the included Xchange360 software).

    Both are commercially available at stores that sell Xbox 360 accessories.


    1. Transfer your save files to the memory unit. (Only necessary if target save file is not already on a memory unit)

      1. Under the “System” blade, select “Memory”, you should then see both your hard drive and the MU.

      2. Select “Hard Drive”, “Games”, “Oblivion”… you should then see a list of all your save files, and any downloaded content.

      3. Select the files you want to transfer, and copy them to the MU.


    2. Transfer the data from the memory unit to your PC.

      1. Plug the MU into the USB cable that comes with the transfer kit.

      2. Open the Xchange 360 software that comes with the transfer kit.

      3. Click on the 360 memory card blade, and “backup your memory card”.

      4. A single
        “.z36′ file containing an image of the entire contents of the memory
        units is created on your hard drive (by default to the folder “My
        Documents\X360 Memcard images”; this can be changed under options)


    3. Convert the image file from a “.z36′ file to a “.bin” file

      1. For the
        Xplorer360 software (used in the next step) to recognize the image
        file, it needs to be converted to a different format.

      2. Download and install XIC from 360gamesaves.com (currently available as “XIC V1.0.exe”), or from Konsolen Profis.de

      3. Using XIC is
        straightforward, just double click on the .exe and you will be prompted
        to provide the names of the .z36 and .bin files


    4. Extract individual Xbox360 save files from the image

      1. Download and install Xplorer360 from 360gamesaves.com (currently available as Xplorer360beta5), or from 360Mods.com (currently available as Xplorer360beta6)

      2. Open the software, and from the “Drive” menu select “Open… Image”, and open the “.bin” file

      3. You will then
        be able to explore through the image’s directory structure; the save
        files are typically in a directory buried several layers down under
        “Content” on “Partition 1′

      4. The oblivion
        files will be listed as files with names like “Save 2451 -
        01C6DDD6B53A3B30′; the save number will match the save number visible
        in-game.

      5. Highlight your save files, then under the “Edit” menu select “Extract…” You will be prompted for where to extract the files to


    5. Extract the oblivion save file from the Xbox 360 container file

      1. The files you
        have at this point still have an extra layer of Xbox RSA-type security
        included in them. If you try to load these files as-is into a PC
        version of the game, the load menu will recognize the files, but the
        game will freeze up if you actually try to open them.

      2. Download and install wxPirs.exe [1], available in version 1.1; for release information see xbox-scene.com. Note that this software also requires installation of Microsoft .NET framework.

      3. Under the “File” menu, open one of the files extracted in the previous step

      4. In the bottom
        panel, you should recognize the title of the save file, e.g., “Save
        2451 - Nenya, Level 20, Play Time: 255:43:30′; the real data that
        you’ve gone to all this trouble to get is in the right hand panel,
        always identified as “gamedata.dat”.

      5. Right click on “gamedata.dat” and choose extract; pick a name for your save file, e.g. “Save 2451.ess”.

      6. Transfer this .ess file to your PC Oblivion save files directory, and you’re done Start up Oblivion, and load the game!

Is it only with this game or do you have issues with other games as well? If it is only with this game, then the issue could be game specific. Try to get a new disc and see if that works. This is a glitch in the game in this case and nothing to do with your console.

My XBox 360 freezes


Well if these spot are consistent on certain disks time after time it is most likely a scratch, smudge or defect on the disk. check them all for scratches and if they are dirty try to clean them very gently with a soft cloth. This would only really concern your actual console if it occurs during heavy game loading or at the same spot during a load. Try cleaning all your disks and get back to me. GL

check your game for deep scratches on the cd if there is none, then your best bet is shipping it back to microsoft or there is actually a company that fixes your 360 for a cheaper price. just google xbox 360 recall and if you look through the pages of signatures you will find an advertisement for 360 recalls go to that and call the #, i hope it works out for ya.

Xbox 360 elite, call of duty 4 fault


Hi Jake,
Yhe only thing noticable here, is that the 360 elite has the 60 gig hard-drive instead of the Standard 20 gig, as fitted with the white 360. perhaps you might be able to try a 20 gig hard-drive on the box. May work, worth a shot. i,d also check microsofts site, for any game updates or patches for the game itself.

hope this helps ya buddy.

p.s plenty of people would be willing to trade your elite for a standard white 360. this would be another alternative.

My X-BOX 360 has disk tray errors.


Hi,

Try clearing the cache....!

To clear the cache on the Xbox 360 do the following:

* Go to the Xbox Dashboard, select the System Blade, and select Memory.
* Highlight the HD symbol and press Y.
* Press X, X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X, X.

You will see a confirmation message to confirm system maintenance, proceed.

Clearing the cache on the Xbox 360 is a fairly simple process, and can be useful if the system seems sluggish, unresponsive, or you just need to get rid of a game update (for whatever reason).

The most important part of clearing the cache is knowing what to expect. All downloaded game updates will be removed. So if you have downloaded an auto-update for a game, in order to play it on Xbox Live you will need to re-download it.

User game saves, profiles, demos, videos, etc. are not deleted during the process.

Cheers
