Re: xbox 360

That's weird, if the Xbox needs a driver it should be installed or come on a Cd.

So the games don't play ?

Call support and threaten that you'll bring it back, it'll get them to help better.

The old can't be played on the new 360?

The Xbox 360 is backwards compatible with certain games that were released for the original Xbox. Currently there are more than 200 BC titles with more being added all the time. Big name titles such as Halo, Halo 2, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Ninja Gaiden Black are just some of the Xbox games you can play on Xbox 360

There is a requirement for backwards compatibility and that is you have to have a hard drive for your Xbox 360. If you bought a Core system you can't play original Xbox games on your system until you buy a hard drive

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.

Bought used xbox 360. It came with a lego star wars game. That game plays correctly every time. Bought a used Halo 3 game. When you put it in, the system thinks it is a DVD. Took the game back and got...


There could be one of 2 things going on here. Ether you are having a software or hardware problem. To address the software problem you will need to connect the XBOX 360 to XBOX Live and download the latest updates to the system. Most likely this is your issue as the XBOX 360 came out before Halo 3 and you do not have an OS updates on the system to load it properly.

If you do not have an LIVE account. You might trying to check with a friend to see if he will log into your system to run the updates. Another option is that they sell just One Month LIVE card access cards for around 8 Dollars. These cards will let you get on line and get the updates with out having to get a one year subcription. Note alot of your newer games give you a One Month card with the game when you by it new to be able to get any updates you might need.

Now if the updates do not fix the problem then you have some kind of hardware problem and you may need to check with your local repair shop to see if they can fix tthe problem.

Hope this helps

Xbox 360 halo problems

my halo sometimes does the same thing when i start up the game but pressing a usually gets you through it, but if your xbox 360 overheats within minutes and is an older xbox 360 its usually a burnt out fan or just full of dust, if its old then ur warranty might already be out and if it is just open up the xbox and use an air compressor or anything else to get all the dust out of the xbox. in my case everything was just caked with dust. anyways... good luck
