Game Won't load With Hard Drive in, But will Without harddrive

I am playing "Force Unleashed" and have done something to my xbox 360, so that the game will not boot up with my 60gb hard drive attached to my console. Then the whole system seems to get caught in a loop, where nothing works until I reboot the console. I remove the hard drive, and the game works perfectly, although I can not save.

The Hard drive works perfectly with other games, and is less than a week old, as is the console and game.

Please help

Look for any corrupted file on your harddrive, instead of a normal icon for a file, it will show a yellow triangle and an exclamation point in the middle, delete it..

after that clear cache, to do this go to system settings, memory,
press y for device options, if you can see the rename and format option in the screen, you are in the right screen, press x, x, left bumper, right bumper, and then x, x, select yes,

even though you cannot see any corrupted files in all of the folders in the harddrive, you have to clear the cache..


if this doesnt work try deleting the saved game content to that specific game..

I installed homefront onto my hard drive to make my xbox 360 quieter but it doesnt say 'play from hard drive' and so i just select 'play game' and then it makes the same amount of noise....


You don't -play- the game from the harddrive, and nor does it make less noise if you install it.

When you install a game to your harddrive, it normally makes the game quicker to load, not for older games, I think Homefront is a "newer" game.

The benefits of installing the game is that your optical reader is less in use, that the game saves and loads quicklier and is normally better performance in-game.

Just bought a copy of fable 2 platinum hits for my xbox 360 the game wil not load exchnged it 3 times at gamestop still no load all my other games load on this console except this one any one ever get this...


i do not think someone has experienced something like this but you could always try saving the game to the hard drive before you play and playing it off the harddrive which would make sense to work but if this has not fixed it, it means you have had a damaged fable 2 in your hardrive at one point and the only fix would be is to try to get a new xbox 360 if you are really keen on playing this game

360 won't play a certain disc


i had the same problem with my xbox 360, but with call of duty world at war.
i had to exchange my xbox 360, for a new one.
and it now works fine, so you should probably stop trying to use the game, or exchange your 360.

Xbox 360 will not play Star Wars Force Unleashed


I'm having the same problem, I think it has problems because the cutscenes are rendered in real time (though I can't confirm this).

You should try copying the game to your hard drive, then running off the hard drive, and see how you go. I'm about to go and do that myself.

Good luck :)

Force Unleashed bonus objectives don't load or work


the game save may be corrupted. I know the game isnt terribly long so I would just clear the SWFU data and start over.

Xbox 360 reading error


i used to have this same problem with my xbox, the first thing you need to try is to turn off the console and remove the harddrive (if you have one). with the hardrive taken off turn the xbox back on again then re insert the disc to the console. if the disc then starts to load up and work properly then it means that there is a problem with your hard drive. from here you have two options. 1. you rather buy an new hard drive and that should solve it or 2. you have to format your harddrive and start all your games from scratch so unfortunately either way will mean losing your data and downloads. however before you format your hardrive make sure that the game loads properly without it. if you take the hard drive off and you cannot get a game to work still them i am not sure what the problem is and you may have to ring microsoft.
