oh well it may be the laser inside the actual drive so it may be easier replacing the drive itself rather than the laser individually. i dont really have any ideas on how to do that because ive never done that before so best of luck to you on that one
So i have a Sort of Xbox problem not so much a i can't play problem but more of i have no idea how to do this problem. I've been recording games i play and putting them on YouTube for awhile on PC but i have no idea as to how to record games on Xbox i know a fair amount about PC's but this issue with recording on Xbox baffles me. if anybody could help with this it would be a great help.
I can't see the menu buttons (Games, Music, Video, bing etc) at the top of Xbox Home, I've search around for some answers and found that there are a few people getting this and there is no solution to it yet, seems to be something coming from the inside of Live. Anyone else experiencing this problem?
Basically what you want is a TV card for your computer; simply install a TV card into your computer and plug your XBOX into said TV card and record the video. This set up is not recommended for gaming as there is a measure of lag.
I have the same problem too, actually. Sometimes my Xbox will read discs but after 70 tries. Not exaggerating. Oh, and it seems to be reading Mass Effect 3 and Portal 2 just fine, but games like Skyrim, Arkham City, Oblivion, Kingdoms of Amalur not really. Perhaps it has to do with these games being really heavy and the disc being harder to read?
it would really be best if you went and got a new xbox 360 because i know people who have fixed them in this state of damage and their xbox and accounts were banned because it counted as them being modded and the process costs alot based on the way they did it
I'm guessing that you have confirmed that your 360 functions fully with the new drive? And that when you swapped the drives you swapped the circuit boards as well or flashed the new drive with the the old drives firmware?
Hey folks, weird question if anyone has any insight.
I have a 360 in the community center of the resort I work at for our guests to use. Recently, one of the games we have for their use, Wipeout 2, has stopped working. Seems the game requires a Live connection to work right now. The only thing I can guess might be the problem is the dashboard was updated to the most recent version. Can anyone confirm if this is the cause, or if it isn't what else I might do to fix it?
In reply to scootshoot, #8813: I would take it back to the place you bought it from and tell them that it isn't redeeming, the machines that the stores use to activate the cards sometimes do not work, also the system they use to let you active your cards on xbox live may not be up at the moment/not working.
I've never heard of this happening before with a disc game this usually only happens with a game you've bought over the xbox live marketplace and requires xbl connection to launch. If you have the new xbox with wifi built in I would try to connect to your hotels wifi and try to launch the game and see what happens. If you are not able to get a Live connection and it says it is requiring it then I would just take the game back and try to find one that does not require a live connection to play (should be 99% of games).
My Xbox keeps restarting, but it's not random, it restarts at certain times. There have been Three of Four separate things that my Xbox just refuses to download, instead of downloading the Xbox keeps restarting over and over until I cancel the download. It also restarts everytime I try to install Dishonored to the hard drive, the install always works fine until in reaches 44% then the Xbox restarts. At first I thought it was Xbox live, because my Xbox live profile does dumb shit all the time, but now I found a instance while playing a game were once I got to a part in the story were the Xbox turns restarts it's self everytime I get to that part. The strange thing is that I beat that game two days ago, and I never had any problem with it then, also I was not connected Xbox live, so I guess that means, it's my Xbox that's the problem.
