This is very simple: you seem to not have enough hard drive space for a system update that your console is trying to install.

Error 8007 0070 occurs when you install an update or buy content on...

(I've pasted some bullet points for you)

" Error 8007-0070 occurs when you install an update or buy content on Xbox 360
Problem
You may see the following error code and message when you try to update your Xbox 360 console or purchase content:
xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-8007-0070

Note
The "x" characters in the error code vary.
This may mean that there's not enough space on your storage device (mostly likely the Xbox 360 hard disk) to install the update or the content.

Solution
A console update or content download may require significant hard disk space. If you don't have enough free space, you need to move or delete some items."


You can probably get around this by using a 32gb USB thumb drive and moving some of your content that's hogging up your console's space onto that thumb drive temporarily.

Heres the Xbox.com info to get you started about moving and deleting hdd space--which also has info about using a USB thumb drive, too. Copy move or delete Xbox saved games profiles and avatar items

Xbox 360 hard drive says unformmatted even though it has 207 gb of data


Looks like you are going to need to reformat your hard drive. Though it might show available memory, for one reason or another your Xbox can't recognize it as useable. Follow the instructions below for formatting your Xbox 360 hard drive properly:

Important When you format a storage device, all of the information saved on that device is erased and cannot be recovered. Make sure that you either do not want the information stored on that device or have backed up the information to another device before you continue.

To format a storage device
  1. Start your Xbox 360 console without a disc in the tray.
  2. On your console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
  3. Select Memory.
  4. Highlight the storage device that you want to format, and then press the Y button on your controller.
  5. Select Format.
  6. You receive the following message: This will delete all content on this device. Do you want to continue?Choose Yes to format the storage device.
  7. If you are asked to enter your console serial number, enter your number, and then select Done. This step helps guard against accidental formatting.

    The console serial number is located on the back of the console and behind the oval door on the front of your console.

I created an account last year i saved it to the hard drive now when i log onto my system to use my account it not there anymore what do i do


It could be that the account was accidentally erased or corrupted. If you use XBox Live, you might first want to try recovering your gamertag from online. This solution won't restore any game saves, but it will get you your basic account information. Follow the steps on this page.

My gamerscore shows up on the "my xbox" screen but....


Sounds like someone has modded equipment, or your victim of a malicious other. Now I have idea of why this could happen. Your memory is full, you've been hacked, You have modded your 360. Of course it seems like your 360 is automatically downloading things from live and is deleting your items, this although unlikely is a suspect. Here's a few part solutions:
1.If you've modded your 360 I'm sorrry I can't help
2.If you've givin' your information out recently, then you should call microsoft and they'll lock your account while they investagate
3.Delete some items
4. Disable live from automatically downloading things

Then again this sounds more like a problem eminating from the system itself, You may have to trade it in, But if all else fails tell Microsoft. Good luck

SAVED GAME FOR GTA IV


sorry to hear your game save is corrupt.

while i haven't heart of any save problems with gta 4.... no game is perfect.

If it continually happens with gta 4 and possibly with other games, it could be a sign of hard drive failure.

Hd failure is a common problem with other models.

Just a heads up.

Hard drive problems


sounds like you have a bad save on your HD you need to go into your HD while in dashboard and delete everything that is on it. This should work in stopping your games from freezing.

If it doesnt then you will need to purchase a new HD as your HD has gone bad. This is rare but does happen.

Xbox 360


First thing first did you purchase the xbox 360s with or without hard drives. They sell xbox360s without hard drives and there cheaper by about 100$ the price of the hard drives Look on the top of the 360 there should be an item that looks like this
http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/viewer.aspx?productId=989&assetTypeId=1&shotId=0

This is what the system should look like. if you have this then you need to create a name for the HD if you dont you need to purchase one. let me know either way.
