There are a few things you can try;
Clearing your cache, you can download the update on your PC through xbox.com and the transfer it using a USB thumb drive.
If that still doesn't work, I'd try contacting xbox support, they might have a solution for this issue by now.
Try plugging the xbox straight into the modem and not the router, if it still happens, reset your modem and router and try again. Xbox live can be sketchy at times. Also the traffic to xbox live because of the holidays can sometimes screw with the updating and such.
Xbox 360 to network is ok. network to internet is ok. internet to xbox live comes up 40% connected and pops up with update required. when i try to update the bar doesnt move and then it comes up with failed to update.
Some game are compatible with the new xbox 360. They are called backwards compatible and you do need to flash upgrade the OS on the new xbox 360 system.
You need to go to the xbox website and go to support and download the flash update then burn it to disk and put it on the xbox to update the software. Again not all old games are compatible with the new xbox system. If your buying used games like I do make sure it says bc next to the title before buying them.
Here is the link to the upgrade
The xbox live board is down,so if you pass all tests except the xbox live one,this is the problem.I rang them and they said over 50% of users are having this problem.Its because so many people went on it over Christmas and the system got overloaded.They said they're working on it and it should be up and running in a week or two. ~~PS~~ I rang on the 12-1-08 so it should be up by the 20th,its not your fault,the servers down.
try resetting your connection, unplug your modem or router for 30
seconds and see if you get a connection. after that it would be a
software issue. more likely its failing to update because you have NO
internet signal. try also, re-configuring your network IP settings
which is usually automatic- with no disk in or through the dashboard.
if you can get into dashboard try manually putting these in.. but like
i said try unplugging your modem for at least 30 seconds to update the
IP. good news... if microsoft has to repair it theres a good chance
youll get a brand new system though it might take a few weeks at least.
is this with a brand new system?
