Question about Capcom Devil May Cry 4 for Xbox 360

1 Answer

Console sticking when loading

Whenever I try to play Devil May Cry 4 on my brand new Xbox 360, it will try to load the game and then get stuck. It works on the same console at my friend's house but not at my house. The disc is in mint condition and spotless. There seems to an irregular sheen, but other than that, I can't find a single reason that it should't be working. Can you tell me what's wrong?

The reason for this issue might be that there are some corrupt files on the harddisk/memory unit that the game has stored on them, try to load the game without having the harddrive/ memory unit attached.
If this works you will have to perform maintenance on the harddrive/memory unit, you can do that in the system tab on the Dashboard.

Another reason might be that your consoles DVD-drive laser is getting weak/ was defective from the beginning since the console is quite new, this is a well-known problem.

If it is really only this single game that the console doesnt read you can rule that out but if your DVD-Drive should be defective it will have to be repaired.
Just call Xbox support they will replace the DVD-Drive with a new one as it is still covered by the warranty.

Kind Regards,

I got a brand new 'lips' Xbox 360 game, put it

You might have a bad game if it is used. If it is not check to see if it plays other games without issues. Your Xbox might need to be repaired lets hope that isnt the case. You may also want to try it on a different console if at all possible. If all else fails you maybe need a new xbox if you are dying to play that game

When i'm playing Far cry 2 and its reloading it sticks and wont play no matter what i do ie; i've cleaned disc and xbox 360. This isnt the first far cry 2 game that this as happened too.the first...

This is probably a result that a small part of the disk is damaged and the reloding code might have been broken. To test this try to play for as long as you can without reloading to see if it keeps happening. If the disk is damaged no cleaning will fix it.

Xbox 360 - Oblivion IV - loading probs

Next time the game is loading, try clearing out the cache. You can do this by holding down the A button while the game loads. When you see the Oblivion title screen come up, your cache should be cleared. This may clear up your issue. If that doesn't do it for you, you can try to clear the cache out another way. There are many websites that can assist you with that. When in google, search for: Clear XBOX 360 cache. Hope this helps you.
