Halo 3 Update problem

Well, since the last update (I'm guessing it is version 1.1), I can't play Halo 3 online for the xbox 360.
I enter matchmaking, search for a game, and I enter it. About 10 seconds later, I'm sent back to the matchmaking. It happened about twenty times, and I've lost quite a bit of Exp because of that ;/

I've tried clearing the cache, searching google, this forum, but nothing. Note that I can't even enter as a party, or even a custom game, so the problem's not the matchmaking. I also tried resetting my console to factory default, and it didn't work. It isn't my CD as well, as I tried playing with it on my friends house, and it worked.

I think I've tried quite everything, and I'm hoping Bungie can fix this in any ways. Note that before the update I NEVER experienced any problems with halo. No RRoD, nothing.

Any suggestions?

I would try deleting everything off of your memory units. (Including your gamer tag) Go and restore you factory defaults on your console again without any hardrives or memory cards. Reset your console and re insert the memory unit. Go to the dashboard and recover your gamertag. Re download any mappacks you may have purchased. (Dont worry, it will be free.) Then try it all again.

How to play xbox games on a new xbox360 slim 4gb


I am assuming you are referring to playing original Xbox games on your new 360. Halo was the only game from the box that you can play directly without needing to download the patch to play but supposed newer systems have the capability to play more directly out of the box.

Other backwards compatable games can be played but you will need a samll patch for each game. The game if playable will automatically attepmt to download the patch from xbox live. So you will need to have your Xbox 360 conected to live or have a patch disk. (which is available via the Xbox Magazine disk or can be downloaded online and burned to a disk)

Here is a link for Xbox games that are playable on the 360: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Xbox_games_compatible_with_Xbox_360

"You can play some original Xbox games on your Xbox 360 console, if you have an Xbox 360 Hard Drive and the latest console software.

Information about how to update your console software is available on our Xbox support website:
support.xbox.com/pages/xbox-360/how-to/update-xbox-360/system-updates.aspx "

I have the new xbox kinetic and i updated the game burnout paradise to version 1.9 and now when i go to play the game it tells me that the update is on the memory unit and should be placed on the hard...


Yes, this is a major problem with the new xbox 360. If you bought the 250 gig package, you shouldn't have to worry about this, but it sounds like you bought the 4 gig package. You don't have a hard drive. You only have an IMU(internal memory unit). You can buy an xbox 360 slim hard drive online. Install it into the hard drive slot, located on the side of the console. You're not the only one with this problem, lots of games require hard drives. For example, in halo reach, you cannot play co-op campaign or firefight without a hard drive.

My halo 3 says player failed to load content


hold down the sync button and turn on your xbox (while still holding sync) untill it boots all the way. now goto settings > memory > games > halo 3 and delete all downloadable content and boot halo 3 if you get an update allow it and if everything goes well you should be able to get to campagne and eveything then redownload all downloadable content. some updates mess with the DL content and the holding of the sync while booting clears all failed updates and redownloading should reconfig the files to work wih the update. Hope this helps.

Xbox 360 cant play newer xbox 360 games only older xbox 360 games


when the new games came out, the console updates itself when you go to play the game. Look on the back of your console at the numbers. (not serial or part) You should see 2006 or 2007. It is most likely that you have an 2006 which means that your graphics card isnt strong enough to handle the graphics from these games. If you call up microsoft and tell them that the console had the 3 red rings (even though it doesnt) They will take your console, repair it, and update it all for free.

HALO 3 UPDATE


Have you got the internet connected to your Xbox 360? If so, i have two relevent answers:

1: Don't press update, i've heard that the update is not a necessity to playing the game.

 

2: Contact the store that you rented it from or; Contact microsoft and tell them the problem.

 

If you haven't got the internet connected to your xbox 360 then it WON'T work.

 

cheers.

Xbox 360/Halo 3 problem


I think thats because of a new update that came with Halo 3, I bought the halo 3 special edition xbox 360 and it came with the update, so I didn't have this problem. I think its the new update from microsoft that is making this issues with the old xbox 360, when the update is corrupted you'll have to format your hard drive and then update again and pray that this time is not corrupted or you'll have to do this again and again, again, again. I think this happen when you have a slow internet connection because when I try to update in the house of my uncle who has a super speed, I never had this problem, also when you have NAT problems, the update can be corrupted.
