Installing new "used" 20 MB Hard drive

We jjust bought an x-box 360 and needed an external hard drive. So we purchased a 20 mb and put it on our system and it only allows us to play the new games. We were advised that with this purchase we would be allowed to play regular 360 :)

There are only a few games for the 360 that require a hard drive in the first place (but without one you wont be able to save your game).
if you have one, the only possibility i can think of is maybe the hard drive is full, in which case you just need to delete a few things off of it. most games dont need very much space.

note: I'm not sure what you mean by new games and regular games. so if this doesn't help, make another post clarifying and ill see what i can do.

X- box 360 is asking me to apply an update. So when I apply it a prompt comes up that says.update failed status code: 3F4B - 0000 - 0080 - 0300 - 8007 - 000F

Dear ,

Please try the following solutions.
Solution 1: Try installing the update again 1.Restart your console.
2.Press the Xbox Guide button on your controller (the large central X button).
3.Go to Settings and select System Settings.
4.Select Network Settings.
5.Select Wired Network or your wireless network name (if you are prompted to do so).
6.Select Test Xbox Live Connection.
7.Select Yes if you are prompted to update your console software.
If this didn't resolve the problem, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Make sure you have enough storage space
The latest console software update requires at least 190 megabytes (MB) of storage space (or 256 MB if you live in Japan). If you don't have enough free space, you need to move or delete some items
If this didn't resolve the problem, try the next solution.
Solution 3: Clear the system cache
Removing the temporary files on your console might solve the problem.
After clearing the cache, try the update again. If this didn't resolve the problem, try the next solution.
Solution 4: Reinsert the storage device
1.If you're using an Xbox 360 Memory Unit or a USB flash drive instead of a hard drive, remove and reinsert the Memory Unit or USB flash drive.
2If you have a hard drive, try removing and adding the hard drive
Solution 5: Roll back updates 1.Press the Guide button on your controller, go to Settings, and select System Settings.
2.Select Storage.
3.Scroll down to your Memory Unit or hard drive, so that it's highlighted.
4.Press the Left bumper, press the Right bumper, and then press X.
5.Again press the Left bumper, press the Right bumper, and then press X.

How do i fix x-box 360 e79 error permanently

Error code E79 on an Xbox 360 means you may have a faulty hard drive. This may be due to the hard drive not being connected correctly and can be fixed in a few steps. If, after following troubleshooting steps, the error does not resolve itself, you may need to purchase a new xbox 360 hard disk.

I have a 120 gb hard drive on my XBOX 360.I have put almost 500 albums on my hard drive.For some reason I can't load anymore CD's onto my hard drive.It shows that it's "ripping" but it never does...

Please check how much more space you have left. a regular cd can hold up to 700 mb. 700 mb times 500 albums is about 300 gb. So your problem could be that you ran out of space. if this is not the case clarify how much space you have left

My 256 mb was showing 251 mb with all profiles and now it is showing 214 mb. what happened to all my memory?

There could have been a System update that used a part of it, perhaps you saved a game. There are many things that will slowly eat the Built in memory on an Arcade Version. This is why I always recommend a Hard Drive version.

Xbox 360 Not Playing Music Through External Hard Drive

In windows media player 11, click on the small down arrow below library and select media sharing. Check the box for share my media then turn on you console. I dialog box will pop up asking you to approve file sharing. You can then customize your options for that device. If the dialog box dose not pop up you have a firewall problem. For the Iomega Media Drive, you have to use the software that came with it. Open the program click on configure, select the folders icon, and look next to your media folders and make sure DLNA is on otherwise your console cannot access those folders.

I dont not wy i can't play

many games load data on to the hdd to keep load time down. If your hard drive is full you can upgrade to a lager unit or erase the data you no longer need. btw all ps3 use a 2.5" sata hd with a 5400rpm speed. You can put in a 500gb if you wanted. You would need to back up all your data first. you can also setup the ps3 to use a external hard drive for storage.

Games won't work

the problem lies within your hard drive. first thing youll have to do is perform a matenince on the hard drive. to perform this you must go into settings, memory, select your hard drive, then enter the following code... LB LB X X RB RB... it will say are you sure you want tot perform this. select yes... when this is done and the games still dont work, you'll have to format your hard drive. and after youve done that and they still dont work, you'll then have to buy a new hard drive
