When i insert fifa 2012 pirated disc it asked SYSTEM UPDATE. when i click update it started to update.after sometime update stopped and it shows 'SYSTEM UPDATE STOPPED.AND STATUS CODE:--3151-XXXX-XXXX

Probably because its a pirated game, and you are trying to run it off of a modded xbox. Try disabling the mod updating your mod, and 360. Then try playing the game.

If the game is under warranty, take it back to where you bought it and show them the problem. If they will not replace it they should most likely give you a refund or show you how to fix it.

System turns to red light standby in the middle of playing

you need to go to your setting and change your automatic shutoff timer. this will cause your system to turn off every 15 minutes no matter what you are doing...

Please help im in need and board

Hi, the discs will spin ??? The bubble in top right corner don't stop spinning ???
If you answered NOT the first and YES the second question ...... Then you probably have a defective laser lens like my 40 GB purchased in 2008-Nov.
You have 2 choices: 1- Send it for repair (With warranty) 2- Fix it your self.
It's no complicated, I did it. Just buy a laser replacement and do it. Look for videos in and will see that it's so easy.

I have recently purchased a ps3, about 2/3 weeks ago, with it i brought call of duty 4. I brought the ps3 mainly for online gaming and cod4 works perfectly. I then purchased fifa 08 and tried to play...

The Fifa 08 game has problems if you are not using a "HD" output. So if you don't have a Hi-def TV then don't buy this game (It is why i didn't buy the PS3)! I am not sure about the other game.
