Hi, is the xbox modified or is a retail version of your xbox. Retail Xbox's cannot load games from it's hard drive. The games you must be seeing are the game save files in the memory menu. If it is modified and you cannot play and of the games, then it is going to require reinstalling. As for the dvd games, your xbox dvd drive will need replacing. Any xbox modifying outlet will be happy to change that for you. Just be aware that around a 50NZD will be most likely the charge.

Status code 4174-0000-3080-0504-8007-000D


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

Hi my name is chris and I have a game that I bought last year and i am 11 years old. when i got this there was no scratches but when my family was moving and i was at school at that time my brothers were...


It is possible that your game is scratched up enough that you can't play it directly on your xbox 360... BUT you might still be able to play it is you can save it to your Xbox 360 hard drive. You might need to try it a few times to get it to read and work but try following these instructions for installing the game from your CD directly onto your Hard drive. You will still need to have the CD in your Xbox 360 to play but it will be reading from your hard drive if you can install it. Good luck:

To install a game on your hard drive loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.

Every time I put a new game it's unreadable and doesn't work, but when I put a old xbox 360 games they work fine , for example my Red Dead redemption, which I have had for almost a year works fine , but...


well, the only thing that i can think of is that your old games work because you may have backeed them up to your HDD. For whatever reason, it is not reading any of the discs, but you can play the old games because the machine knows the correct disc is in the drive, and plays it straight form the hard drive. Note that this answer is based on the assumption you back your games up; you may need a new DVD drive.

Since my xbox 360 has been repaired it won't play copied dvd's


your drive is modded with special firmware(software). What happens eventually is the laser is going out on the DVD-drive. When a DVD is burned on a computer it is not as readable as a DVD is that is produced in large factories that Microsoft use to make 360 games. So you should be able to play 360 games you buy fine and some burned games but not all of them. Replacing the laser is hard. A temporary solution would be to burn your games at a slow speed like 2.4x or even 1x.

My x box wont read any discs


Greetings,

Please go through the Website link mentioned below.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816779

Note 1 If a saved game file is corrupted, it can produce a disc error message in that game, particularly when the game starts. You can resolve this issue by deleting all saved game files for the affected game from the Xbox hard disk. This method is effective approximately twenty-five percent of the time. If you experience this disc error message with more than two games, this procedure will likely not resolve the issue.

Note 2 Do not use laser lens cleaners, or similar products. Microsoft has not determined the effectiveness of these products or the affect they may have on the Xbox system. Microsoft cannot promote or recommend any type of laser lens cleaner for use with the Xbox system.
----------------------------------
1. Clean the disc and examine the disc for flaws or scratches
Hold disc by the edges without touching the surface with your fingers.
2. Clean the disc with a soft, clean cloth, lightly wiping from the center outwards.
3. Do not use solvents or chemicals to clean the disc.
4. After you clean the disc, examine the disc for any scratches or defects. If you find any defects that are not caused by typical wear and tear, return the disc to the retailer if it still under warranty.
---------------------
Copy and delete any saved games from your hard disk
Note To copy saved games, you must have an Xbox Memory Unit (MU). You must copy saved games to a MU before you delete them.
1. Start your Xbox console with no disc in the disc tray. The Xbox Dashboard appears.
2. On the Main Menu screen, press the directional pad (D-pad) up or down to select Memory, and then press the A button.
3. On the Memory screen, press the D-pad up or down to select Xbox Hard Disk, and then press the A button.
4. On the Xbox Hard Disk screen, press the D-pad up or down to select the game title you want, and then press the D-pad left or right to select the saved game you want to copy.
5. On the Copy/Delete screen, press the D-pad up or down to select Copy, and then press the A button.
6. On the Copy To screen, press the D-pad up or down to select the memory unit you want to copy to, and then press the A button.
7.Press the B button to return to the games list on the Xbox Hard Disk screen.
8. On the Xbox Hard Disk screen, press the D-pad up or down to select the game title you just copied a saved game from, and then press the A button.
9. On the Copy/Delete screen, press the D-pad up or down to select Delete, and then press the A button. You receive the following message:

Are you sure you want to permanently delete this saved game?
10. Press the D-pad left or right to select Yes.
11. Repeat these steps for each saved game on the Xbox hard disk. If you have many saved games but you can remember when you started to receive the disc error message, you can just delete the saved game files that you created after that time.

Please let me know if you have any issues.

Why does my xbox say my games are dvds


Are you using copied CD's of Xbox games, Original Xbox 360 would read such copied game discs as normal DVD's and would show a message as "Play DVD"

To play such games it requires the Xbox 360 DVD drive to be flashed, which is called as a Softmod, if you do so you would be banned for playing on Xbox Live and such act is prohibited since it accounts to game piracy

Any game i play disk arcade or demos xbox freezes


Try the following:
  1. Hold disc by the edges without touching the surface with your fingers. Clean the disc with a soft cloth, lightly wiping from the center outwards. Do not use solvents or chemicals to clean the disc. Examine the disc for any visible signs of damage.
  2. Verify whether the Xbox console clock is set correctly.
    • Turn on the Xbox console without a disc in the drive.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Main Menu, and then press A.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Settings, and then press A.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Clock, and then press A.
    You can see the date and time from this screen. Correct the date and time as neccessary.

  3. Try to play the game again. If this does not work, you can try to clear the game cache on the Xbox hard disk. If you have a Xbox Memory Unit available, copy the game cache for this game from the Xbox hard disk to a memory unit:
    1. Insert a memory unit into a controller connected to your Xbox console.
    2. Open the disc tray and remove any disc, if present.
    3. Close the disc tray and re-start your Xbox console.
    4. Select Memory from the main Xbox Dashboard, and then press the A button.
    5. Select Xbox Hard Disk, and then press the A button.
    6. Locate and select the game you want to back up in the list of games.
    7. Select the appropriate save game icon. The Save game icons are located to the right of the game icon. Each save game is identified with a name, date, time, and size.
    8. Press the A button to display the Copy/Delete menu for the save game.

      Note: If Copy is not available, you have not chosen a save game file.
    9. Select Save, and then press the A button.
    10. Press the A button again to save to the appropriate memory unit.
    11. As soon as the copy is complete, press the B button to return to the list of save games.
    12. Repeat these steps as needed to back up your other saved games for this game.
    If you do not have a memory unit, deleting the game cache removes your progress in the game, high scores, and other information. To find the game cache, follow these steps:
    1. Open the disc tray and remove the any disk, if present.
    2. Close the disc tray and re-start your Xbox console.
    3. Select the Memory option from the Dashboard.
    4. Select the Xbox Hard Disk.
    5. Locate and select the game in the list of games.
  4. Select the large game icon to the left of the list and press the A button.
  5. Press the Abutton again to delete the game cache file.
    Note: Delete should be the only available option. If Copy is available, you have chosen a game save file and not the game cache file. Press the B button to return to the list, and then select the leftmost icon.
  6. Select Yes to permanently delete the game cache, and then press the A button.
  7. Confirm that the icon is no longer listed, and then re-start your Xbox console.
  8. Insert the game disc, and then either load your latest saved game from the memory unit, or play the game from the beginning.
