When i go onto halo 3 and try to to do matchmaking it dosent work, rather than getting the comment telling me to press a to start game/search, instead it says 'information cannot be retrieved from the halo 3 server' and i cant access any playlists and such, i have had this problem since i got the game and im not sure what the problem is because i've had my disc changed, though xbox live works fine for everything else, help please?
Halo 3 Matchmaking could have something to do with the Maps as it usually does. Try changing from Matchmaking to Custom Games and then back again and see what happens. Also if you have the Heroic And Legendary Map Packs then try re downloading them without deleting them. If none of this works try a complete new copy of the game and make sure it isnt installed to your hard drive.

yeah quite a few people are having this problem. What it is is the server acting up. there will be nothing you can do apart from just letting the server getting back up...or there is another way which i tried. I did a custom game with me only and win it. Then go back on matchmaking and it should work form there...hopefully.
No its not down, im in matchmaking right now and is it any of your settings maybe? Its a problem with your server because thats why its saying about retreiving information from the server. i dunno what thingy to put it in so i put it in solution
Usually the XBox servers get really busy around Xmas. Lots of new players with new XBox live accounts and new games to play on line. Last year the servers crashed altogether. Combine that with increased bandwidth being used by people in your neighborhood and you could either be losing your connection or the people hosting are losing theirs.
