Xbox not saving games

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.

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.

My xbox Your Shape 2011 game isnt saving any progress any more

This is acually a common problem for that game. The only suggestion I would take is to reload the game saves on your XBOX. To do this, you go to Settings-System-Storage-All Devices-Games and Apps-You Shape (press Y on the game instead of A)-Delete. Then, go back to the main menu and load up the game. It may take longer to load due to the original save file being deleted, but it will then record your save file. If you followed those suggestions and it still doesn't save, you may want to contact XBOX for troubleshooting ideas or Ubisoft.

Hope that helps. Good luck!!!

Game save corrupt

Well there is nothing you can really do about that sadly. The only thing that you can do is to go back to an earlier save but other than that all of the progress you have made before that last save is gone forever.

Playing game to end of second downtown level and beat boss @ construction lair. Once beaten, game freezes? Any ideas?

Sounds like it could be a glitch in the saved state. Some things you could try to rule out any form of the video game itself, if you have a friend with a 360, bring it to his place and try it on his 360. Might take several visits but if it freezes on his 360 too, then it's sometime to do with the development of the game itself.

If it doesn't freeze on you, then it's likely a problem with the HDD, where all the saved information is kept. If this is the case, call Microsoft to do some troubleshooting with your HDD.

My fable 2 game keeps freezing on the loading screen of shadow court. it doesn't just freeze the game but the xbox too. I just got a new xbox and it still freezes, it came with a hard drive so i also tried...

your xbox is not the problem the game is because when ever the game is stuck the xbox is trying to read it so the entire xbox freezes trying to read it i would sell it at gamexchange and save money for a another one so stop trying to play it or your xbox will get red rings trying to read it or can try to get gamexchange to buff it for u or try gamestop trust me its happened to me

My XBox 360 freezes

Here are things to try.

1. Try another game and check if it only happens on this game ( MLB 2k9 )

2. Select memory -> Select Y button for device options then press the following sequence on your controller

X,X Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X

You will see a message that goes like this " This will perform maintenance on your xbox 360 storage device, would you like to continue? Select Yes

3. Delete your save game. or try to start a new game..

Because this is an indication that the certain point that you are trying to load is already corrupted and its your saved game.
