Sound cuts out screen freezes while loading saved game for mass effect. Same thing while playing oblivion. Before you can start Halo 3 while Halo icon is on the screen clean disk message appears. Perfect Dark Zero Death Match has messed up graphics.

    Mass Effect was brand new. It was only removed for lens cleaning. Other people who have inspected the disks tell me they are in nearly perfect condition. If "experts" think I would rather pay money for their advice than take the free advice that I said came up on the Halo 3 prestart screen, I fear that I will solve this myself long before I get anything worthwhile for my money. No, there were no red lights.

    I have never subscribed to xbox live.

    I was using a Xbox 360 and an aproved lens cleaning device when the problem 1st occured. I then cleaned the lens manualy using a cotton swab and isoprople, very gently. There was no change either positive or negative anything I've done with the discs or the lens. If it is not a problem with the softwhere, discs, discdrive or laser lens, what does that leave, concerning a graphics problem.

Well you got a bad lens since cleaning it didn't help.

He's using an Xbox. Now he said he never subscribe to xbox live, so the problem lies with either the CD or the lens of the console coz you said they clean the lens. In my opinion, you shouldn't touch the lens of the console. A single tiny scratch will ruin your game. It will affect the graphics and sound quality of the game. I believe it's the lens problem. My advice is re-do the lens cleaning again using lens cleaner.

Will not load a saved game from hardisk.


i had a bit of the same problem. For me it would freeze when i was loading them. I ended going back to the last good save and reloading it, deleting the old, and saving new files. Hope this helps.

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.

MY xbox stopped saving on my Oblivion game


alright. Auto saving is an option within the game. You can probably find it within the start menu.

Try running a DVD cleaning CD through your xbox. You might have a dirty lens.

three red lights in my xbox 360

My X-BOX 360 has disk tray errors.


Hi,

Try clearing the cache....!

To clear the cache on the Xbox 360 do the following:

* Go to the Xbox Dashboard, select the System Blade, and select Memory.
* Highlight the HD symbol and press Y.
* Press X, X, Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X, X.

You will see a confirmation message to confirm system maintenance, proceed.

Clearing the cache on the Xbox 360 is a fairly simple process, and can be useful if the system seems sluggish, unresponsive, or you just need to get rid of a game update (for whatever reason).

The most important part of clearing the cache is knowing what to expect. All downloaded game updates will be removed. So if you have downloaded an auto-update for a game, in order to play it on Xbox Live you will need to re-download it.

User game saves, profiles, demos, videos, etc. are not deleted during the process.

Cheers

XBox 360 freezing- Not what you think


Your system is headed for the dreaded red ring w/ three red rings. My system started doing the same thing just before this happend. If you have a service plan with it i would suggest returning it and getting a new one.

I tried all the there little tricks as well deleted everything off my harddrive all that good stuff i think it made mine worse. Cuz after all that i turned it back on and bam three red lights and no picture or sound.

Freezing during oblivian


Oblivion uses the Xbox 360 hard drive to cache game data and in some cases the info stored on the hard drive can get fragmented, slowing down the game's performance. Bethesda has already found out a way to fix the issue. Here is the official word: Oblivion uses the Xbox 360 hard drive extensively to cache (copy and reuse) game data. This is done to optimize all loading the game does. It has been found in rare cases on some Xbox 360s that the cached data can get overly fragmented. This exhibits itself by the game taking a long time to load anything from menus, dialogue, sounds, objects, levels, and more. To solve this problem, reset your Xbox, and hold down the A button as the game is booting up. If any button is held while Oblivion is loading, it will clear its hard drive cache, and create a new one. Once you see the ?Bethesda Softworks? logo video, the game is already loaded, and the cache should have been cleared. Note, this does not effect your game in any way other than loading. You will not lose any saved data.
