Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Hard Drive (120GB)

2 Answers

I've had my console for about a year now, and a couple weeks after i bought Halo Reach, as i was playing online, it said "Could not write, possible problem is that you have removed the hard drive or memory unit." Then I tried going to the dashboard, (which by the way took a very long time to load) and saw that i had no avatar, no gamer picture, and zero gamer score. Then I went to the memory place in system settings and saw that my hard drive was "unformatted". I tried formatting it 3 times and it still says unformatted. It also takes a very long time to start up the console and has no more memory what so ever. How can I fix this problem? AND DON'T SAY I NEED TO FORMAT IT, BECAUSE FORMATTING DOES NOT WORK!!!!!!!

The problem may come from the hard drive which means that it may have a virus like a computer or that the hardrive may have a malfuntion and cant be able to read to the xbox 360 so it is considered to buy a new hardrive and recover your profile/ enter xbox.com to get all the downloads that was on the last hard drive

Is there a difference between halo 3 and halo 3 ODST ?


If you actually purchased only the ODST game you will not be able to play anybody in Halo 3 online. You will still actually need the Halo 3 disc to play multiplayer online.

Now this depends from system to system so you might have to try a couple of these but....
Go to system Then Console settings Then System info Then try one of these following combinations
LEFT TRIGGER, RIGHT TRIGGER, X, Y, LEFT BUMPER, RIGHT BUMPER
LEFT TRIGGER, RIGHT TRIGGER, X, Y, LEFT BUMPER, RIGHT BUMPER, Y, LEFT STICK CLICK, Y, Y LEFT TRIGGER, RIGHT TRIGGER, X, Y, LEFT BUMPER, RIGHT BUMPER, D-PAD UP, A, X, A
LEFT TRIGGER, RIGHT TRIGGER, X, Y, LEFT BUMPER, RIGHT BUMPER, LEFT STICK CLICK, X, X
Hopefully one of them works. After that, it should tell you to reset the factory settings, just hit yes and you should be fine.
Cheers

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.

I have a modded XBOX and recently bought Halo Reach (Back Up).When I insert the disc to play it say "Play DVD". i've last updated about a year ago. Could this be a problem?


Unfortunatly, Its a bug of the new update as I have also had the same problem only with Call Of Duty 4.
We will just have to wait until Microsoft fixes it.

For some reason i can play sierra 117. also the catch skull is mi


This sounds similar to what happened to me, except I couldn't load some multiplayer maps.

If you know someone that recently bought Halo 3,(within a week) ask him/her to return it with your defective game in the case. He/she will receive a new unopened Halo 3, and you can take your friend's recently opened copy of Halo 3.

If you don't want to be cheapskate, you can borrow Halo 3 from a friend, and save it on your hard drive. After that, you can use your defective disc just to play the game. Unfortunately, if you save it on your hard drive, it supposedly makes the game slower when searching for multiplayer matches online, and other things.

If you don't care about saving money, you could buy another copy of Halo 3.

Halo 3 unplayable


some time your laser is a little wack but if you are haven trouble like that then send it to repair and youll get a new xbox so it works out for you.. or just buy the 29.99 warranty on your box and get a 350.00 new box in 2 weeks. i did that once wen i still had warranty on it so.
