    I have had that same problem too, and from what it looks like, everytime I tunr the Xbox 360 console on, the loading screen in the very begining looks like it is taking alot longer than when I first got the Xbox 360 console, maybe due to a lot of updating? maybe?

Hey guys, freezing usually means that there is a problem with your Spacers due to them not doing their job correctly because they have been worn out over time. The spacers job is to make sure that the device that it covers keeps from overheating and touching the outside of the shell. If one of your spacers is damaged, it could fool your xbox into thinking it is not overheating. This causes the fan to stay at a low setting and not speed up towards its full function of cooling the processor and the motherboard. If thats the case, your xbox will freeze up because the process will stall due to it not getting sufficient air coolant and because the heat is building up rather then exiting the console. If this problem persists, you are on your way to having the 3 RED LIGHTS OF DEATH. If you are out of warranty, my best suggestion would be to open your console up and change the spacers with say a rubber eraser 1.5cm wide by 1.2 cm tall and this would eliminate the sticky tack substance that is on your console now. The rubber will better ground your console and get your box running in no time. There are many tutorials on how to properly take apart your xbox 360 and i advise you to go to the one with the most diagrams and pictures to visually help you.

Hope this has helped

P.S - You might want to try to take your power brick and make sure all the cables are fastened, as well as make sure that is in an open area where it can be vented well.

Where can I get my hard drive mended it just ticking and will not work

I've had a pretty good success rate with freezing drives to recover data from a dying/dead drive. Much simpler and cheaper then most other methods of data recovery.
Freezing the drive shrinks everything inside, sometimes freeing up stuck/seized/trapped components, or keeping an overheating component from shutting the drive down right away.
Stick the drive in a ziplock bag(to seal out moisture) in the freezer.
While it's freezing, set everything up to quickly transfer your files off the drive if it does work. After a couple hours in the freezer, plug the drive in and see what it does. It may only work for a few minutes, for hours, or weeks. Pull your data off as fast as you can, if it stops again, re-freeze it and start where you left off. I've frozen drives 3-4 times to get everything off.

It's possible the Firefly remote is interfering. It's also possible the mouse is going bad (G7s have been around for a while). I'd contact Logitech and see what they can do for you - their warranty support for mice is terrific.

have you consulted customer service on this? It sounds to me like it might be a drm issue, where drm is a form of licensing that stop you playing files without the license.If it is that kind of problem Sansa should recognise it straight away and then you'll know what to do. in the meantime you could try doing a reset as per the instructions that came with the player or go to the website and download the manual.

Vertical Lines all over then starts to move lines back and forth

you should first check all the cables inside the set to make sure they all are seated properly, check some other sources like a dvd player and see if it does it on a dvd, after that it is probably a defective main board
