I am trying to save a game on certain levels and i am not able to retrieve the game where we left off. Got any ideas on how to do this? Everyone says its easy.. Does this unit have a hard drive in it. This is not the xbox 360. Help.. My 6 year old is driving me crazy with questions. Thank you in advance.

Re: xbox not saving games
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.

If your discs are scratched, this can certainly cause some problems, so make sure that's not a factor.
You said you tried playing without a hard drive. How about formatting the hard drive/memory card? That could possibly do the trick.
The disc lens could be dirty, and for that you can find a lens cleaner. If none of those help, it could be that your hardware is simply damaged. If that's the case, then you'll have to ship it out for repairs.

your fingers. Clean the disc with a soft cloth, lightly wiping from the center
outwards. Do not use solvents or chemicals to clean the disc. Examine the disc
for any visible signs of damage.

Your laser could be bad, that is my idea for the situation. Your laser probably loads to a certain point and then just stops for some reason. You can try adjusting the potentiometers up 10 percent if your technologically advanced or try and replace the whole laser/drive.
