Ok its one of three things:
1) That player doesnt have the Content. So what I recommend is having that player go the the XBOX Live Marketplace and getting everything thats free for Halo 3 there; unless you are playing a map that costs points in which case get them too.

2) You may not have enough HDD Space to save or get the content. Maybe you need a new HDD.

3) Possibly a bad connection the game if you are playing online.

Hope this helps.

Why deos halo 3 on my xbox 360 say player failed to load content


There are a number of confirmed reasons as to why the content will fail to load:

1) The disc is scratched
*Solution* - First try putting the game into another person's console to confirm that it is the disc as opposed to your console. If the game doesn't load on another person's console, the game is scratched. You can attempt to take it somewhere for disc repair or you might have to invest in another copy.

2) Corrupted Halo 3 data on your hard drive
*Solution* - If the above test proved that it is your console, try this step next. Clear the cache on your 360. Do this by:
- Scroll to the system tab on the main 360 menu
- Select Storage Devices
- Highlight your hard drive
- Press 'Y' for Drive Options
- Press the following button sequence: X, X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X, X
- It will ask if you want to preform maintenance on your storage device, select 'Yes'.
- When it's done, restart your console.

*Solution* If you're having trouble with multiplayer maps not loading, delete and reinstall of your Halo 3 DLC.

3) If none of the above solutions work, there is a problem with your console.
*Solution* - Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and utilize the manufacturer's warranty, and if you lack the warranty, compare the cost of repair to a new Xbox 360 to determine if it's worth it.

Player faild to load content


Hello,

Its possible that your Xbox360 is having a hard time reading your game disc. Try to clean your Xbox360's lens by using a CD lens cleaner. If you are still having problems after doing that, its possible that your game disc is already bad.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.

Halo 3 fails to load all my content


This happens when one or more of the players does not have the map to load. This occurred often when the map packs were released but Bungie fixed it by offering all of the maps on one disc. It shipped with Halo: ODST.

For some reason i can play sierra 117. also the catch skull is mi


This sounds similar to what happened to me, except I couldn't load some multiplayer maps.

If you know someone that recently bought Halo 3,(within a week) ask him/her to return it with your defective game in the case. He/she will receive a new unopened Halo 3, and you can take your friend's recently opened copy of Halo 3.

If you don't want to be cheapskate, you can borrow Halo 3 from a friend, and save it on your hard drive. After that, you can use your defective disc just to play the game. Unfortunately, if you save it on your hard drive, it supposedly makes the game slower when searching for multiplayer matches online, and other things.

If you don't care about saving money, you could buy another copy of Halo 3.

My halo 3 says player failed to load content


hold down the sync button and turn on your xbox (while still holding sync) untill it boots all the way. now goto settings > memory > games > halo 3 and delete all downloadable content and boot halo 3 if you get an update allow it and if everything goes well you should be able to get to campagne and eveything then redownload all downloadable content. some updates mess with the DL content and the holding of the sync while booting clears all failed updates and redownloading should reconfig the files to work wih the update. Hope this helps.

Halo 3


Your disk is scratched. Call 1-800-4-myxbox and tell them you need a replacement Halo 3 disk. They will replace it for about 20-30 dollars.

Xbox 360 problem


It sounds like you have DVD drive issues. You did not say how old your machine was, or how long it's been since you bought it. Microsoft is being nice these days and will fix it for free if it's not old. So the best thing to do before you do anything is give thenm a call 1 800 4-MY- XBOX and see if they can help you. If not, then I can tell you that repairing this system is not easy and I definitely would not recommend you open it and try to fix it yourself. I'll be more than happy to fix it for you, but I don't know where you are. Good luck.
