Question about Microsoft Halo 3 for Xbox 360

1 Answer

Halo 3 not showing text or music.

When my X-box 360 broke down and was not reading any disks, I got a new one to replace it. When I got my new X-box 360 pro, I started playing, and it played all my games fine until I tried Halo 3. With Halo 3, there would be a menu and a selection bar, but no words. I could go onto the next menu, but could not start a game and there was still no text. I'm wondering if it was because it never re-updated, but I thought those auto-updates went onto the hard drive, which I am still using from my old x-box. I don't want to clear my hard drive, because then I would lose all my progress in all my games. What should I do?

Try going to your xbox system settings and press A, then click on your memory Icon and when you see a selection that says Storage Devices and in that area you see your hard drive, on the bottom there is a button that says device options. click on the device options by pressing Y and then press in this exact order Y,X,X, LB, RB, X, X. The xbox will then ask you if you would like to perform maintenance on you Xbox 360. Click on Yes and it will perform a check and service on your hard drive. I do not know exactly what it will check but I do know that it will cause the system to have to redo the updates for each game. This might help by clearing problems that an update may have had. And it will reinstall the updates as you put the games back in. No harm to your system nor the warrenty.

Unfortunately, replacing your disk drive is not something that a normal user can do. You will need to call Microsoft support at (800) 469-9269 and see if they can fix it for you.

My xbox 360 wont read halo 3 but reads my other games?


Your disk may be damaged. If it has scratches on it that can cause major problems. But the worst problems are caused by fingerprints. Fingerprints prevent the laser from reading the data on the disk. If your disk has fingerprints, run it under the water faucett and, using a soft cloth (the kind you would clean eyeglasses with), wipe from the center to the outside of the disk, not in a circle. If the problem persists, the Halo 3 data on your hard drive may be corrupted. Delete the data and try starting the game then.

Xbox 360 will only read halo !!


That is an odd problem. It sounds like you maay need to change the laser or the dvd rom assembly if its reading only one game, yet all the games it wont read are working ok in another console. If i was you id simply replace the DVD rom drive, making sure its the same version as the original from the unit. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Can't run Halo 3 at all.


Next to cleaning your CD good, try also getting the laser eye cleaned as well, this might help. Also, if the disk is too scratched up then it will not read it, the scratches might be too deep.
