Try using a DVD/CD lens cleaner (found at walmart/best buy).

The games are read by the lens, and processed through the internal graphics system. But the Dashboard ( and possibly the guide too) don't have to go through the lens.

If the cleaner doesn't make a difference try this-

Start your 360 with Halo 3 in the tray.
On the XBOX Dashboard, scroll to the section where you would press "A" to launch the game, but instead press "Y".
If your 360 is up to date, you should have the option to save the game to your hard-drive. -Do it
Hopefully, it will download without the static issue.

If that doesn't work, contact Microsoft.

Connect your second controller and go into the lobby for the custom game or matchmaking game. Press the A button on the controller and it should pop up a window to let you sign another person in.

Why deos halo 3 on my xbox 360 say player failed to load content


There are a number of confirmed reasons as to why the content will fail to load:

1) The disc is scratched
*Solution* - First try putting the game into another person's console to confirm that it is the disc as opposed to your console. If the game doesn't load on another person's console, the game is scratched. You can attempt to take it somewhere for disc repair or you might have to invest in another copy.

2) Corrupted Halo 3 data on your hard drive
*Solution* - If the above test proved that it is your console, try this step next. Clear the cache on your 360. Do this by:
- Scroll to the system tab on the main 360 menu
- Select Storage Devices
- Highlight your hard drive
- Press 'Y' for Drive Options
- Press the following button sequence: X, X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X, X
- It will ask if you want to preform maintenance on your storage device, select 'Yes'.
- When it's done, restart your console.

*Solution* If you're having trouble with multiplayer maps not loading, delete and reinstall of your Halo 3 DLC.

3) If none of the above solutions work, there is a problem with your console.
*Solution* - Call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and utilize the manufacturer's warranty, and if you lack the warranty, compare the cost of repair to a new Xbox 360 to determine if it's worth it.

Whenever I put Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4 or anything into the console it says "reading" for a while on the Xbox 360 Dashboard then it just says "open Tray" and does not start the game. I keep trying over...


Hi,

Clear the system cache:
1. On the console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
2. Select Memory.
3. Highlight any storage device, and then press Y on your controller.
4. Select Clear System Cache. If Clear System Cache is not available, use the following controller button sequence to clear the system cache: X, X, left bumper,right bumper, X, X Note If you don't see a system maintenance prompt on the screen, try pressing the button sequence again.

Try playing discs without the hard drive in:
1. Turn off your console.
2. Locate the hard drive on your console.
Press the release button on the hard drive and lift the hard drive from the console.
Turn on your console.
3. Try to play a game disc.

If this resolves the problem, you will need to replace the hard drive.If not, do the same thing for your memory units. If it works without them,they may be bad.
Thank you !!

Halo 3 not showing text or music.


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.

If your xbox is stuck in standby, you've got some issue. Unless you pressed the "standby" button on your router while playing Halo 3 at a weak attempt to try and cheat other players, and then your xbox 360 became stuck in "standby"mode, I have no idea what you are talking about. Elaborate. And if this occurred after prressing standby while playing Halo 3, you probably deserve having a broken xbox 360 since you were probably trying to cheat against me! As for the guy who's life revolves around Call of Duty, you have to stop playing sometime. Either when the console actually breaks from all the cheezy poofs and mountain dew you place on it or M$ poorly designs the xbox 360's to do this intentionally.

HALO 3 UPDATE


Have you got the internet connected to your Xbox 360? If so, i have two relevent answers:

1: Don't press update, i've heard that the update is not a necessity to playing the game.

 

2: Contact the store that you rented it from or; Contact microsoft and tell them the problem.

 

If you haven't got the internet connected to your xbox 360 then it WON'T work.

 

cheers.
