Re: xbox 360

First thing first did you purchase the xbox 360s with or without hard drives. They sell xbox360s without hard drives and there cheaper by about 100$ the price of the hard drives Look on the top of the 360 there should be an item that looks like this

This is what the system should look like. if you have this then you need to create a name for the HD if you dont you need to purchase one. let me know either way.

I just recieved a xbox 360 console and am unfamilar with it. Does it require a use a memory card simalar to a ps2 machine ? Where can I get an instruction manual online ?

Hi panthur46,

Sadly, i can't provide you with an instructions manual since they're copyrighted material. But the Xbox 360 uses two methods of saving games. It used to have memory cards but right now the most common way to save games is by doing it on the console's hardrive (if one's aviable).

For manuals you should check the official microsoft page:

Hope this helped you!

My xbox 360 died and i bought a 2nd hand one. I purchased many arcade games from xbox live and they are saved on the memory pack. i have transfered this over and no it keeps telling me to unlock the games!...

You have to recover your gamertag for these arcade games to be played again, it's like an anti - piracy feature of the Xbox 360System not to allow data transfer wihtout prior notice. On your new Xbox 360 System:

• press the xbox guide button
• if your are signed in to your profile, you have to sign out first
• after signing out, press the Xbox guide button again and select recover gamertag
• on the next page, confirm on the prompt and follow the onscreen prompt to recover your gamertag

This should allow you to manage and play your downloaded Xbox Live Arcade Games.

You don't have to purchase them again. You need to register your new console with Microsoft and let them transfer the licenses onto your new system. This can be done on Microsoft's Xbox Website.

Xbox will not load a particular saved game

your xbox hardrive may be full...check to see that you have space on could also be that you have too many Farcry2 games saved on it...if you have multiple games saved, try erasing one that you dont need

Everytime I try to load my save on Saint Row 2 (Xbox 360) it goes to the loading screen and freezes. It also does it with Far Cry2 (Xbox 360) I've checked the save on the memory section of system settings...

it might be the laser what needs the power adjusting, or just to make sure - look underneath the game discs, is there a circle/round mark on those games? if so then they will need skimming at your local gamestation.
ive also seen this problem when the logic board is faulty.

Xbox problem keep freezing only on one game

Check back of game for any scratches check center ring and make sure it looks like your other xbox 360 games and if everything seems ok you have 2 options

1. Take it back for a different copy the one you have may be current.
2. Download to hard drive it reduces load timesand freezings

Libary> Click on NFS with game in cd tray > choose download to hard drive..

It takes only 10 mins.

Error disk reading Xbox 360

You can try a 3rd game and see if it loads and if so then there is a problem with PGR3 and not with game. Also clean with alcohol and try again
