SOURCE: Hi, I'm still unable to update the xbox 360

Hi,
your probably not doing anything Wrong.
did you boot the console then eject the draw, and put the update disk In ?
it should read the disk, then tell you it,s an update, and ask you if you want to update the console.
Make sure your hard-drives connected.
The only other thing i can suggest, is to make sure your 360 reads the disks or media your using.
if you try burning a music cd, and see if the 360 recognises it, you,ll know the media or Blank CD/DVD is good for the 360 to read. another method is to add a dummy file of about 80-100mb.
this ensures the 360 sees the disk.
try different media/disks and different methods.
if it still does,nt work for you. mail me your e-mail address and i,ll forward you 1 already made.

regards Mike @ compurepair.

SOURCE: Update failed xbox 360

Simply hold down the sync button before turning on the console. Continue to hold the sync button until the console boots to dashboard completely. This will clear any failed updates. If you still have this issue after performing this you will more than likely need to send your console in for repair.

You must have a memory card or harddrive plugged into the Xbox 360 for the update. Please note that the update might not fit on the memory card

My xbox keeps coming up update now but wont do it if u say no it freezes


Check to see if your xbox 360 is connected to the internet. If your xbox is connected to the internet and still is not allowing you to update check your xbox setting. Sometimes your parental control on xbox 360 can stop you from updating your xbox. If all else fails try to take your hard drive off the xbox and reset your console to factory settings

It wont read on my xbox 360


If you already have the Spring 2010 Dash Update for the Xbox 360 console this can be configured( go to Setting up your Xbox 360 with your USB Flash Drive).
The update allows you to configure a flash drive to hold up to 16GB of Xbox 360 games, gamertags, videos, and other information. You can connect two USB storage devices to your console at once.
  • If you don't have it yet, you need to download the update:
To install the update through Xbox LIVE
1. On your Xbox 360 console, sign in to Xbox LIVE.
2. Select Yes, updated now when prompted.
3. When you see the new Dashboard, you're done.


Setting up your Xbox 360 with your USB Flash Drive: 1. Plug the USB flash drive to the Xbox 360 console.
2. On your console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.
3. Select Memory.
4. On the Storage Devices screen, select USB Storage Device.

Xbox 360 elite update wont work keeps signing me out


When the update is applied, it is supposed to sign you out.

If you are signed out and the update is not successful, there may possibly be a problem with your connection.

This means that your console was not updated with the latest firmware to read Wave 4 games. To update your console, you have to join and sign in to Xbox Live and the system wuill automatically acquire an update to enable wave 4 games to run. Hope this helps.

New xbox 360 games wont work


Can you connect to XBOX Live to get firmware updates??
I assume you always update when the game gives you the oppurtunity, these updates include playability issues, glitches, etc.
