Xbox 360 locks up. what causes my xbox game the hobbit to freeze in story mode? when the story completes it locks up and the screen turns black, I shut it down and when restarted it keeps repeating


Is this the only game affected? Do all your other games play through? You can try to play the game under a different profile. Sometimes game saves get corrupted. That is why they were telling you to purge the hard drive. You can just delete the game saves for this game.

My console works and lets me play online games but it wont let me play disk games how can i fix this


Your Blu-ray drive has gone bad most likely. Try inserting a blu-ray movie to double check. Also, try to play a music cd or a dvd. I usually see that cd's and dvds will play but the BR movies and games will not.If your concole is less that 1 year old, contact sony for a warranty repair. If it is older than 1 year, they will repair it for a cost.

I have been playing COD Modern Warfare 2 a lot recently and want to install it on my hard drive for a quieter Xbox and less "strain" on the disk. I would just like some clarification: 1. If I install my...


1: No you won't
2: No you won't

Installing on the hard drive is just supposed to make the game run a bit smoother as the console has less steps to take to reach information (rather then processor to hard drive to CD-Rom, involving 3 steps, it's Processor to Hard Drive) This will provide a smoother gaming experience for you, without sacrificing game saves or other game information.

Downloaded update, next day I got the blinking red light


Mate if you turn your PS3 off when the hard drive is still operating or the power shuts of while playing a game and the PS3 is collecting or writing data to your hard drive, it will most definitely corrupt or even destroy your hard drive it is very common in PC's to.
Hint:
1. Do not shut down your PS3 while it is saving a game or collecting info from the hard drive. Rather quit the game then press your off key with one quick touch and let go of it, it will shut down when it is ready or hold down on the remote's PS button and select switch off system on screen.
2. If you live in a area where the power shuts off for no reason please please get your self a computer UPS(UN-INTERRUPTED POWER SUPPLY).
3. If you replace the hard drive make sure you buy a good quality hard drive like a Western Digital or Seagate.

Boot Problem in TASCAM 2488


Turning the power off with out going through the shut-down process will sometimes trash the hard drive making it un readable. To force format of hard drive hold down the shut down, send, shift and quick routing keys at the same time then turn power on. This will format the HD. When finished the display will show "Factory initalize complete" "please power off" NOTE you will lose every thing on the HD including the demo song.
