It sounds like the drive is corrupted and there are a couple of solutions, Google for xbox drive unlocking. You must be able to run a softmod to get the "key" to "unlock" your hard disk with which means your xbox must at least be able to boot and run games. If the corrupted xbox is capable of this it should be possible to save it. The next suggestion is getting a replacement at http://xboxdrives.x-pec.com/?p=list. You would be able to get a larger drive instead of just the 8gb drive. Good luck and if you have anymore questions just repost on this.

Our playstation 3 does not read any game disc's but we can still access the hard drive?


Since the disc drive and hard drive aren't linked, the disc drive can fail while still allowing you to access all the data on your PS3.

Unfortunately, if the disc reading problems continue, there's very little you can do about it yourself. It's possible the lens reading the discs has becomes smudged. You can try a disc cleaner to see if it helps.

If not, you will likely have to send it in for repairs, which may be expensive. Make sure you backup your saves and other files to a USB drive before sending it. Good luck!

Hi, just wanted to know how to delete previously saved seasons and can one play an entire season playing for different teams


If you want to delete your saved game follow these steps:
1. Find the saved game by entering the Wii Options at your home screen.
2. Click on Data Management and then Save Data. You can access there your saved games.
3. Select the saved game you want to delete. You can navigate through the files by clicking the right and left arrows on the screen or by pressing the "+" and "-" buttons on the Wii remote.

4. Erase the file by clicking on the right-hand "Erase" box, and when prompted to erase the save data, select "Yes" on the bottom of the screen. The Wii will immediately delete the saved game from your Wii internal memory.

My x box wont read any discs


Greetings,

Please go through the Website link mentioned below.

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.

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.

DS won't save Pokemon Platnium progress. The screen says "There is already a saved game file. It is impossible to save. Please refer to the Instruction Booklet for details.Press Up plus B button on the...


Whats happened is you have started from a new game while an existing save was there. There is no way to save your current progress, however the origional save will still be there. You can either turn it off and start again from the previous save (by selecting the top option at the first menu) or if you want to start right from the begining and be able to save you will need to delete the old save file. I believe the reason for this was that so many kids losts their game that may have taken month (or years) of playing by a friend or sibbling trying to play the game from the start and then save - which would delete the other game save.

Slow


There are multiple reasons why this could be happening. The most odvious would be the disk but you say that it looks fine. Next i would try to reset the xbox hard drive cache which involves a couple steps. "To perform the function, access 'memory' in the system blade, and then highlight the hard drive. Now press: Y, X, X, LB, RB, X, X. The following message should appear: "Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices?"" After doing that does it improve the load times in the game? If that doesn't help it is most likely either the drive or the saved game. To test the drive try playing another game. If that works fine and loads at the normal pace then it is your saved game might need to be deleted. (If you have or can get ahold of a memory unit move the saved game to that and then delete it from the hard drive and test it. Afterwards you can then move it back over.) How that helps.
