You can buy one at future shop or Best buy, also some games save files are very big, much bigger then the internal memory of the Xbox, you could even buy an attatchement from several electronic stores that allows you to use USBs as a hardrive

Tried to play new game, says not enough memory space. I deleted everything and still wont play, help!


You may have an old series console version of the Xbox 360 that only has either 256MB or 512MB of internal memory. You may also have a new series console version of the Xbox 360 that only has 4GB or data storage. For multi-disk games that install one or more disks, you need, at minimum, a 20GB hard drive installed in your console. You will need to invest in a hard drive for your Xbox 360.

I have a xbox 360 slim and i want to play a game without the disk i have an external hard drive and a usb is there a way to do this and if so can i play online?


yes there is a way to do this but no you cannot play online. Xbox live has a verification system and can detect modified xbox systems. Once a Xbox is detected as modified, it is banned from xbox live and would require a clean code to get back on after the system is no longer modified.

if you are in the united states, the practice to modchipping is illegal and the purchase of such items are a felony.

I can not play original xbox games now it said the hard drive must be attached and it is what is the problem?


Just assuming that your hard drive did not come with your Xbox 360? Or if it did then you bought your Xbox 360 used maybe? Below is the reason why some hard drives won't work with BC games. But before you go out and buy a new HDD then go ahead and remove your hard drive from the Xbox 360 and reinsert it to see if that helps. Note: it has to be a HDD not a USB memory for BC gaming.

"Simple. Certain eBay sellers try to make more money by buying 20GB official Microsoft Xbox 360 hard drives for cheap, and then putting larger laptop hard drives into the official 360 hard drive case and then selling them for less than an official drive of the same size would be. Now, technically, these hacked hard drives are the exact same thing as an official one, at least as far as parts go. They will function exactly the same as an official drive. But many of the sellers that sell these drives forget (or might be just plain ignorant about) one important thing - to play backward compatible Xbox games, the hard drives need a special partition for the Xbox 360 to store BC-related data in. If the hard drive doesn't have that partition, you can't play backward compatible games with it."

"So, to answer the question "Why won't original Xbox games work on my Xbox 360" there really is only one answer - Your cheap eBay hard drive might not be as official as you thought and is missing key files that allow for backward compatibility. The solution - Buy official Xbox 360 accessories from established retailers, or if you want to save a few bucks on eBay, make sure you ask the right questions so you know what you're getting."

It is possible that your game is scratched up enough that you can't play it directly on your xbox 360... BUT you might still be able to play it is you can save it to your Xbox 360 hard drive. You might need to try it a few times to get it to read and work but try following these instructions for installing the game from your CD directly onto your Hard drive. You will still need to have the CD in your Xbox 360 to play but it will be reading from your hard drive if you can install it. Good luck:

To install a game on your hard drive loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation');
  1. Insert the game disc into the disc drive.

  4. Press the Y button on your controller.

  1. Insert the game disc for the game you want to delete from your hard drive.
  2. Go to My Xbox, and then select the game you want to delete.

When trying to play certain game types on online multiplayer on halo reach or original xbox games, it keeps saying player doesnt have a hardrive which he needs to play this game mode, but i have 4gb hard...


Hi, although you do have 4Gb storage space this is not actually classed as a hard drive. It is purely flash storage. To be able to play old Xbox games and certain multiplayer games you will in fact have to buy a new hard drive for your Xbox Slim. There is a small cover which hides a Sata hard drive slot connector in the top of your Xbox. I think currently Microsoft are selling the hard drive including the caddy for around £130 ($200). I myself was duped into buying a 4Gb console only to end up buying a hard drive afterward.

Hope this helps

Delete the game off the drive and play it from the disc for a bit, or is it a requirement of the multilayer to have it installed on the hard drive?

Then try loading it to the drive again.

If that doesn't help, you might have to format your hard drive, or if you have another drive around try the other drive.

Why does My Xbox 360 Freeze when i play MLB 2K9


If it only freezes on that game, chances are it's the disk that's causing the problems. I've experienced that some xbox games act up if only the slightest scratch is on the disk. If there is, either take it back or pay a few bucks for Best Buy or some video rental place to repair it for ya.

Installing new "used" 20 MB Hard drive


there are only a few games for the 360 that require a hard drive in the first place (but without one you wont be able to save your game).
if you have one, the only possibility i can think of is maybe the hard drive is full, in which case you just need to delete a few things off of it. most games dont need very much space.

note: I'm not sure what you mean by new games and regular games. so if this doesn't help, make another post clarifying and ill see what i can do.
