Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console

1 Answer


I'm playing HALO 3, when I try to load my mission it automatically goes back to the main menu screen. I just got my system back from microsoft because I was having the 3 rings thing, I have not been able to load my saved game since I got it back. Could this be some kind of memory problem? If so I would appreciate any suggestions. thx

There could now be a problem with your HD, check 'memory' in the system blades, if your games are still there then this would indicate some sort of communication problem between the HD and console however, if you find your games are not there, I would say that Microsoft have somehow cleared your HD. If your game saves are not there it would be a good idea to contact Microsoft again and explain the new situation. I'm sorry if this is not much help to but I am unsure myself as to what could actually be causing the problem. Please rate if it is at all helpful, thanks.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.

Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

When I put my games in the x-box (halo reach, halo 3) it opens, loads I see the menu but when I try to play a mission it says "the disk is unreadable...., but the problem is that it does in only 2...

while this is no absolute solution if you google halo reach disc unreadable you will find this is a very widespread issue with halo reach and there does not appear to be an absolute culprit or solution resolved yet. personally I would try to to maintenance on your internal disc/storage
dashboard/my xbox/system settings/memory/your storage device (ie hard drive) press Y on the control while your device is highlighted and do as much maintenance as your willing, I would clear out the system cache initially this is a positive maintenance step and could resolve your issue, all game updates will need to be re-downloaded, but you will not lose any other data. if this fails to resolve your issue you could try something aggressive like a format... but since the issue is widespread and being resolved, I would just try clearing the system cache first.

Crashes during load ups even when you've been playing. For example, you have one fight on ufc/ fight night and then crashes when it has to go back to the menu. Was playing cod4, saved it, went to change...

Try blowing it out with a can of computer cleaning air. It may have a lot of dust inside. Also check that it is not getting too hot and blow out the fans too.

My XBox 360 freezes

Well if these spot are consistent on certain disks time after time it is most likely a scratch, smudge or defect on the disk. check them all for scratches and if they are dirty try to clean them very gently with a soft cloth. This would only really concern your actual console if it occurs during heavy game loading or at the same spot during a load. Try cleaning all your disks and get back to me. GL

Screen Goes Black When Game Is Inserted

Your laser could be bad, that is my idea for the situation. Your laser probably loads to a certain point and then just stops for some reason. You can try adjusting the potentiometers up 10 percent if your technologically advanced or try and replace the whole laser/drive.
