Question about Microsoft Halo 3 for Xbox 360

1 Answer

Halo 3 not letting me play campaign

For some reason, Halo3 is not letting me play any of the campaign missions. I have already finished them previously, but when i clicked on campaign, instead of the resume game button, it came up with some message saying 'where do you wanna save it' blah blah. so i clicked ok to save it onto the harddrive, and now it wont let me play any of the missions at all. If i try to play a mission through the campaign screen, it will start to load it, then stop and will say that 'players failed to load the content.'
OR, if i try to start a new campaign by clicking on the 'Start Solo Game' button on the opening screen, when it comes up with the Halo3 loading 'ring', it does not complete the loading, but comes up with an alert saying 'Game Failed to Start'

i have tried everything bar clearing my cache as im have downloaded dlc maps for Halo and am not sure if they will be deleted from my harddrive.

so please, any help will be great
