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.

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.

Xbox 360 will not save beyond certain point


Is your HDD maxed out. It will limit the amount of data you can save. try deleting old files or saved games you don't need anymore.

Xbox 360 save and freeze problems


Hi,

I'm not entirely sure what could be causing this problem, but I figured you'd appreciate any input.

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.

I hope this was of some help :)

Any game i play disk arcade or demos xbox freezes


Try the following:
  1. Hold disc by the edges without touching the surface with 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.
  2. Verify whether the Xbox console clock is set correctly.
    • Turn on the Xbox console without a disc in the drive.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Main Menu, and then press A.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Settings, and then press A.
    • Press the directional pad up or down to select Clock, and then press A.
    You can see the date and time from this screen. Correct the date and time as neccessary.

  3. Try to play the game again. If this does not work, you can try to clear the game cache on the Xbox hard disk. If you have a Xbox Memory Unit available, copy the game cache for this game from the Xbox hard disk to a memory unit:
    1. Insert a memory unit into a controller connected to your Xbox console.
    2. Open the disc tray and remove any disc, if present.
    3. Close the disc tray and re-start your Xbox console.
    4. Select Memory from the main Xbox Dashboard, and then press the A button.
    5. Select Xbox Hard Disk, and then press the A button.
    6. Locate and select the game you want to back up in the list of games.
    7. Select the appropriate save game icon. The Save game icons are located to the right of the game icon. Each save game is identified with a name, date, time, and size.
    8. Press the A button to display the Copy/Delete menu for the save game.

      Note: If Copy is not available, you have not chosen a save game file.
    9. Select Save, and then press the A button.
    10. Press the A button again to save to the appropriate memory unit.
    11. As soon as the copy is complete, press the B button to return to the list of save games.
    12. Repeat these steps as needed to back up your other saved games for this game.
    If you do not have a memory unit, deleting the game cache removes your progress in the game, high scores, and other information. To find the game cache, follow these steps:
    1. Open the disc tray and remove the any disk, if present.
    2. Close the disc tray and re-start your Xbox console.
    3. Select the Memory option from the Dashboard.
    4. Select the Xbox Hard Disk.
    5. Locate and select the game in the list of games.
  4. Select the large game icon to the left of the list and press the A button.
  5. Press the Abutton again to delete the game cache file.
    Note: Delete should be the only available option. If Copy is available, you have chosen a game save file and not the game cache file. Press the B button to return to the list, and then select the leftmost icon.
  6. Select Yes to permanently delete the game cache, and then press the A button.
  7. Confirm that the icon is no longer listed, and then re-start your Xbox console.
  8. Insert the game disc, and then either load your latest saved game from the memory unit, or play the game from the beginning.

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.

Screen Goes Black When Game Is Inserted


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.
