Stupid problem makes me want the new Xbox slim even more...

Post  Open Circle on Mon Jul 26, 2010 2:54 am

Ever since my Xbox RRoD'ed on me (yesterday evening) when I tried to connecting it Windows Media Center, which I managed to "fix" by pulling out the power brick and plugging it back in, my xbox would freeze when it started up or in 2-5 mins.

So I cleared the cache on my hard drive and now it looks like it's working fine (though I haven't left my xbox on for more than 30-45 min since). Has anyone had this problem before?

No, but for some reason when I start up Media Center. It puts every single file on my computer on my xbox. Which is over 20000 files.

Nope. Though I'm looking into a Slim or that Halo Slim since my Elite is freezing up on me so it's on its last legs. If only UK Amazon actually sold the damn thing.

Can't see it there. They're always incredibly late anyway. I pre-ordered ME2 from them and got it nearly 2 weeks after launch.

Well, it finally happened. RROD just as I expected. Though it started working again later but freezes every 20 minutes now. I'll pick up a Slim tomorrow along with a new rechargeable battery for the controller.
Weird. Around a month before Halo 3, my original 360 died again for the final time so I went and bought the Elite. And now it's happening all over again.

Jak you should wait for Reach Edition

Way back, me and another group of friends(Including 6 people I knew online, another 5 people I know in Real life, me, and about ten cases I seen online) after about a week after the NXE Update thing, we all got E74. It was weird as if the update was made to buttfuck our 360s.

Now everyone's xbox is breakin again!

I couldn't be bothered waiting for the Reach edition at this point. My Elite constantly freezing/dying is driving me nuts. The Slim is the same thing anyway minus the sound effects and colour scheme.

I have a slim. It's awesome. It's heavier than a regular xbox but it's a lot quieter and smaller. It has a lot more ventilation too. I love the built in wireless too. I go to my friend's house all the time and I take my xbox and monitor with me. It's nice to not have to run a 50 ft ethernet cable up and down his stairs.
