SOURCE: storage device not found

Saving a game requires you to have a Hard drive or memory card did you purchase the premium edition xbox 360? you can look on the outside of the xbox 360 box it will give the specs and what came with the system. If the hard drive is not on the list then you will need to buy one the xbox doesn't come with any internal memory like the systems in the past have. you will need to purchase a HD or a memory card. If you have the premium edition let me know ill instruct on how to set it up.

If the above suggestion does not work, which i think should, try to delete cache on Xbox 360 console. Firstly, go to System tab, then go to Memory, then, highlight HDD (DONT CLICK) and press Y. Enter x, x, left bumper, right bumper, x and x . Sorry, but this does not always work, if it dows, when the tab appears that asks if you want to perform maintenance, click yes

SOURCE: Corrupted profile on XBox 360

E68 is a voltage error. That means that the Xbox has insufficient power to function properly. This can be caused by an error in the hard drive, the internal cooling fans or the main board using too much power. it can also be caused if you have attached an external cooling unit. Unplug the hard drive and any other external hardware then try to power on again to see if you get the same message. Check your power supply to make sure the light is green when you power up. If it is not green it is a power supply issue, make sure it is plugged directly into the wall, no extension cords or power supplies. If you do that and it is still red change the power supply. If the light is green and you still have the issue contact microsoft. If you are under warranty they will fix it for free and if not they will fix it for generally 99.00. You lost your profile due to the power issue. Your profile is saved on flash memory and the power issue probably corrupted the memory. Fix the power issue then reset to factory default and you should be good.

I'm losing my connection...

It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link

My xbox doesnt want to pickup the ethernet connection

There are two ways in which you can address this issue:

1) Attempt to connect wirelessly. You can access this feature via "Settings" on your XBox home page. After setting up your XBox to automatically connect to your internet router (by entering the password and name), you should be able to log into and play on XBox Live.

2) Connect via ethernet cable.
Although you've already tried this, it's possible there is an issue with your modem and not your XBox. Routers and modems usually have a shelf life of about 2-3 years-- if you have had yours for longer than that, it might be time to invest in a new one. Another issue could be a faulty ethernet cable-- they're usually pretty cheap (around ten bucks), so if the above fixes don't work go into a local electronics store, purchase one, try it out, and if it doesn't work return it immediately and you should get your money back.

Wireless adaptor was working fine until xbox live update, and since the update is unable to pick up our wireless netowork. Tried switching everything back on and on and re synching modem with xbox, to no...

To connect your Xbox 360 gaming console to a NETGEAR router's wireless network:
  1. Turn off your Xbox 360 and disconnect anything from the I/O port on the back of the console.
  2. Insert your Xbox 360 wireless adapter to the I/O port as instructed by the wireless adapter manual.
  3. Connect the wireless adapter cable to your Xbox 360 I/O port.
  4. Flip up the network adapter's antenna.
  5. Turn on your Xbox 360.
    • If you are using an unencrypted wireless network, your Xbox should connect to it automatically and you do not need to proceed to Step 6.
    • If you are using an encrypted wireless network click the System tab, and then click Network Settings and continue with Step 6.
  6. On the Network Settings page, select Edit Settings.
  7. On the Edit Settings page, select your wireless settings on the Basic Settings tab.
  8. On the Select Wireless Network page, select your wireless network.
  9. On the WEP Network page, type your wireless network key, and then click Done.
  10. On the Apply Settings page, click Test Xbox Live.
  11. If this is the first time you have connected your Xbox 360 to Xbox Live, you will probably be prompted to apply an update. If there are no updates, the Xbox Live Connection page shows that you're connected to Xbox Live. Press the Y button on your controller to continue.

If testing the Xbox it says DNS failed, then update your NETGEAR router firmware:
  1. From your computer, open an Internet Browser and navigate to to download the firmware for your router.
  2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to or Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  3. Click Router Upgrade on the top left pane under Maintenance, browse for the firmware downloaded and click Upload.
  4. Wait for the router to reboot.

I try to log on but is says that i need an update but i can't my connections is bad and it keeps saying to check my connections

The newest update for Xbox 360 for the launch of Kinect is causing problems. I fixed mine by going into System Settings, Network settings, then running a test on xbox live. Initiating the test logs your profile out then runs a network test. The test completed with no problems and then asked me if I wanted to update again. Without logging back into my profile I clicked OK and the update ran without a hitch. I think the solution lies in the fact that my profile was logged out and from what I have seen, the only way to connect to xbox live without a profile being logged in is with a network test. Once you connect to xbox live it senses that you don't have the update and asks you again, this time without a profile logged in and you are able to do it.

Hi loads of people are having the same problem, xbox live must be having some downtime or server issues if you was the only one then it could be your end but in the last hour their have been loads of posts regarding this problem and all users are getting the same message.

try switching you xbox off and back on and if it still dont connect then your going to have to wait i would try again in an hour or two, usually down time for the servers is a couple of hours while xbox install updates to xbox live, its not a problem your end so dont get changing any settings, the problem is with xbox live so just bare with them and it will sort itself out.

the last time this happened was about 6months ago and the downtime was just over 4 hours, so bare with them for a bit and it will be sorted.

you could try logging into the xbox site on the net and not through your xbox and check the xbox chat rooms and you will be able to find out more their.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

Could you tell me in steps how to conect to xbox live

Step 1 Form your Xbox 360 you need to be connected to the Internet by a straight LAN line or wirelessly. You can test you connection by going to the setting screen on your Xbox 360.
  • Step 2 Once connected to the Internet for your Xbox 360 go to your main account screen and find the tab that says "Join Xbox LIVE" click on that link then follow the simple instructions that the Xbox LIVE will provide. At this point you should have a name in mind for your gamer tag.
  • Step 3 Xbox 360 LIVE has several different options available for memberships. They are a monthly, 3-month and 12-month membership accounts. I would recommend a simple one month account if you just wanted to check out the features offered on XBOX 360 LIVE. If your an avid gamer and love to play games online with friends, the 12-month Gold membership is the way to go.
  • Step 4 Once you've completed the process of joining Xbox 360 LIVE, they will send you a confirmation email confirming your membership. Now you can log on to Xbox 360 LIVE and start doing this like customizing your avatar and playing online multi-player games.

    Hello i have problem, i install my ffxi to HDD xbox360

    Hi! Basically, not all Xbox 360 games are support by this "install" feature. This install feature has started around mid 2009 and thus games developed during that time and so on were theonly games capable of being installed into the Xbox 360 Console's harddrive.

    Try This Hacked Firmware for the 360

    What you need
    - A PC

    5. Go to the 360 folder, from there you will see all the sub folders listing all the other types of files including firmware. Yes the latest ixtreme is in there.

    Warning (DO NOT BE GREEDY OF YOU WILL GET BANNED) get 1 file at a time, and if you get warned leave and come back after 24 hours and go again. (Speeking from experience here).

    Just drag the file from the right to the left window.
