Ive transfered my game saves off my old xbox 360 onto a usb and tried to put them onto my new xbox 360 slim but wen i try do it it says not allowed to transfer files so i try to play game and then save it...


the xbox does not allow this in order to stop piracy, you can enable your xbox to play games off a usb if you flash it. its not an easy thing to do but if you want to learn how, look it up on google

Unable to read any discs


Try keeping off your system for 10-15 minutes and try again. If problem exists go to the shop from where you bought your PS3 and ask them for replacement of your drive or your drive lens. I think drive sounds better.

My ps3 isn't loading games


ok, first, copy your save files onto a flash drive or external hard drive. you can either copy an paste your files, or, if you have an external, you can go to backup utility in the settings. If you dont care about your non-online saves and install datas(you can always re-install), you can just skip that part and just go to settings, system settings, and go to format utility. follow the on screen steps and format your internal hard drive. when done, if you copied your files, you can go to system settings and transfer the files back. If this doesnt work then you will have to get a new ps3, but my friend had the same problem, and reformatting his ps3 fixed it.

Can i transfer files from my 40gb ps3 to a 80gb ps3?


yeah you can by getting an external HDD. transfer the files from the 40GB to the external HDD and then plug it into the 80GB. and then just copy all the files from the external HDD to the 80GB PS3.

(yeah takes time but its the only solution since they don't allow the consoles to connect together.)

Ps3 disk reading error


Can you be any more specific? is this a problem with one disk, one type of disk or all disks? What is the exact error you are getting? Are you trying to play a game, play a film, play an audio CD or are you using your PS3 as a Linux computer and trying to open a data disk? have you tried more than one disk? Without specifics there's just no way to guess what the problem is.

My ps3 won't load any games


if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...

hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)
