Old X BOX Question

I have an old xbox and was wondering do you have any hard drives with saved games? Or how can i save games like Halo instead of starting over each level after we have completed it. I know you can save it to a memory card of some sort right? But if your going to do that, why not just get the hack and save it to the hard drive in there. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thx GURU JAY

    Every XBOX has a hard drive, so if you save it, you can continue on each level. Are you trying to say that you want to start in any part of the level, like say the middle of the mission The Maw?

Ive transfered my game saves off my old xbox 360 onto a usb and tried to put them onto my new xbox 360 slim but wen i try do it it says not allowed to transfer files so i try to play game and then save it...


the xbox does not allow this in order to stop piracy, you can enable your xbox to play games off a usb if you flash it. its not an easy thing to do but if you want to learn how, look it up on google

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

I conected my hard drive to my friends xbox and recovered my old gamertag .... but im not fully on xbox live .. i have a silver account .. so i downloaded an update . when i put my hard drive in 'my' xbox...


The reason that you are not fully on xbox live after recovering your gamertag is because the gold subscription has ran out. The reason for your xbox not having your offline account is because you probably moved your account to your hard drive along with your saved games. If you cannot connect to xbox live, go buy a cat5 cable and connect it to your modem and it should connect you to xbox live so that you can download the update.

Putting old hard drive in new ps3 to get game saves error


You cannot switch a hard drive from an old ps3 and put it into the new one. The new ps3 will know that a new hard drive was inserted and offer to format it.

To get the games off the old hard drive, put it back into the old ps3. Insert a USB flash drive into a USB port on the PS3 and you should be able to copy saved games from the hard drive onto the USB flash drive. You can then plug the USB flash drive into your new ps3 and copy off the saved game info,

When I put Halo 3 into my console, it says 'Player data unavailable'. I bought a new disc but it says the same thing. What do I do?


Try it without the Hard drive or Memory Unit in.

If your console has an internal MU delete any halo 3 related game saves

I have the same problem


Try using a DVD/CD lens cleaner (found at walmart/best buy).

The games are read by the lens, and processed through the internal graphics system. But the Dashboard ( and possibly the guide too) don't have to go through the lens.

If the cleaner doesn't make a difference try this-

Start your 360 with Halo 3 in the tray.
On the XBOX Dashboard, scroll to the section where you would press "A" to launch the game, but instead press "Y".
If your 360 is up to date, you should have the option to save the game to your hard-drive. -Do it
Hopefully, it will download without the static issue.

If that doesn't work, contact Microsoft.

For some reason i can play sierra 117. also the catch skull is mi


This sounds similar to what happened to me, except I couldn't load some multiplayer maps.

If you know someone that recently bought Halo 3,(within a week) ask him/her to return it with your defective game in the case. He/she will receive a new unopened Halo 3, and you can take your friend's recently opened copy of Halo 3.

If you don't want to be cheapskate, you can borrow Halo 3 from a friend, and save it on your hard drive. After that, you can use your defective disc just to play the game. Unfortunately, if you save it on your hard drive, it supposedly makes the game slower when searching for multiplayer matches online, and other things.

If you don't care about saving money, you could buy another copy of Halo 3.

Xbox not saving games


Hi,
the unit does have a hard-drive inside, usually about 8-10 gig.
so theres plenty of room for saves.
These can be viewed in the system/Dashboard menu.
certain games only have the ability to save 1 time, depending on the amount of memory blocks allocated to that game.
The game should over-write as you advance, the xbox hard-drive is locked by default, and should unlock to save the game, then re-lock itself. otherwise the drive when re-booted, will frag Green/Red Flash. error 5.
if you want an additional save (s) you can put a memory card, into the controller port on the front of the handset.
Hope this helps, solve your problem.
Mike @ Compurepair.

Common Problem or Bad merchandise?


This could be something as simple as not enough room on the hard drive from old game saves. I have seen systems lock up when they run out of room on the hard drive just like a computer will.

This would be the first thing I did to see if I could alleviate the issue. Get into the Xbox without any game in the drive, then find the games saves manager and start cleaning up old saves that you don't need and see if this helps any.
