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

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
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.
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.
try going to your xbox system settings and press A, then click on your memory Icon and when you see a selection that says Storage Devices and in that area you see your hard drive, on the bottom there is a button that says device options. click on the device options by pressing Y and then press in this exact order Y,X,X, LB, RB, X, X. The xbox will then ask you if you would like to perform maintenance on you Xbox 360. Click on Yes and it will perform a check and service on your hard drive. I do not know exactly what it will check but I do know that it will cause the system to have to redo the updates for each game. This might help by clearing problems that an update may have had. And it will reinstall the updates as you put the games back in. No harm to your system nor the warrenty.
take the hard drive off of the old xbox and put it on the new one and get a memory unit and put all the game saves on the memory unit put the new hdd on and transfer the saved games from the memory unit on to the new hard drive and there you go.
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.
