Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Console

1 Answer

No game in library

I wanted to put CoD4 on the hard drive alongside Gears2, Fallout3.
Played the game then went to the games library, a pic. of the game cover was displayed. Tried looking for it in 'recent games' and nothing. Popped Condemned in and got the same result. But, arcade games show up in recent games as do game demos, the most recent one being Hawx.
I'm at a loss as to what is going on, or whats not going on!, feel that the last update could have something to do with it or it's just a coincidence.
Any help much appreciated
Thanks

You cant put the COD4, GOW 2, Fallout3 on your HDD, you need a game disc to play it. since those games has a big file on it. you can only save add-ons on the HDD ( Ex. Combustible Map pack for GO2 )

When putting in Forza Motorsport 3 the console makes a lound noise, like the fan is on overtime when reading disc a lot louder than other games. Tried other games after and just low hum. Is it the...


Likely that for some reason the Xbox is having a hard time reading the disc and it is spinning the drive trying to search for files on the disk. If you aren't having the same issue with other games then recommend to resolve this issue then simply install the game onto your hard drive and the game will then only need to be accessed for verification only and the game will be played off your hard drive and not your disk drive. Here are the instructions for insalling a game to your hard drive:
Install Xbox 360 games on your hard drive from a game disc Note Installing an Xbox 360 game on a hard drive requires between 4 and 8 gigabytes (GB) of free disc space.
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.

    Note After you insert the disc, the default option is to automatically start the game. If the game starts, exit the game, and return to the Xbox Dashboard.

  2. From the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox.
  3. Select the game you want to install.
  4. Press Y on your controller.
  5. Select Install to Hard Drive.

    A progress indicator appears while your game is being installed on your hard drive.
Notes
  • Installing an Xbox 360 game might take several minutes.
  • Multidisc game? Install each disc to your hard drive.
Play a game from your hard drive
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.
  2. Go to My Xbox, and select the name of the game you want to play.
Note The game disc must be in the disc drive, even though you have installed the game on your hard drive. The console will automatically play the game from your hard drive, but the disc has to be present.

System boots up, but will not load games or movies


I think the laser in the drive maybe bad. Take a can of air and blow it into the dvd drive. This will make sure dust or dirt isn't on the laser.

Then at that point try different cd's, games and dvd's and if nothing will play then at that point the laser is bad or you can replace the whole drive you can find a laser or a drive fairly cheap on ebay.

EA Sports Games and the 360


Well it can that the GPU is overheating, that happens very often and I will tell why. Microsoft is so cheap that sometimes they forget to put the thermal compound on the heatsink that covers the GPU, so the poor GPU is force to the max and overheats easily after long periods of gaming. Thats why it freezes on the middle of the game. That was very common on xbox machines made before the launch of HALO 3, the new models do come with the compound but just a little bit of it, what a I do is that a use thermal compound like artic or other brand a put a even amount on the heatsink so it covers the entire GPU, then overheatings problems disappears. Hope it helps
