I was a part of the beta, and I haven't received an update prompt.

Ditto.

I cleared my cache, used a different save file (HDD and MU) and still nothing...

I still haven't been prompted for an update yet, so I'm not sure what's up with that bit of news.

Are you sure there is nothing physically wrong with your disc?

Enough time has passed since some of us got updates, without Major saying what it is, that I am pretty convinced now that it was for hack detection or something along those lines.

Well this is really really amazing.

I have basically ran out of space on my 20GB hard drive, so I managed to get a good deal on a 120GB hard drive from Amazon.

The hard drive arrived today. I was excited that I would finally be able to install games, so I followed the manual verbatim, getting everything set up properly. Then I initiated the transfer.

When the transfer finished, it scared me a little because it told me that some of my files were corrupt and were deleted. Unfortunately it does not disclose what items were deleted. There is nothing I can do about it now, so oh well.

Now for the fucked up part. I put the new 120GB hard drive onto the 360 and booted it up. Well it asked me to update my 360, which I thought was weird. I accepted the update, but immediately after I accept the update it fails. The Xbox suggests that I go and test the network connection in the system settings. I test the network connection and everything is perfectly fine, except it asks me to update the Xbox. I tried to accept and it failed again!

I have tried accepting a couple times now and I am wondering if anyone has had a similar experience or knows anything that I do not. Thanks.

Hmm it says I have the newest version of the Dashboard: 2.0.7363.0

So why the hell is it saying there is an update?

Boot up your 360 while you're not connected and format the HDD. Then restart your 360 and try the update. If it's still not working, it's more than likely you have a defective HDD and you'll need to return it.

Uh format? That sounds like a horrible idea—no offense. I cannot lose all my save data. I would lose my fucking mind!

There must be another way. Hmm.

Well I just thought about something for a second. Did you mean perform maintenance on it, where you press X X LB RB X X on the device options of the HDD? Well I just tried that and it is still failing the update.

I think he means a pure format, which I'd suggest against. It sounds to me like you need to contact Microsoft.

Browsing the Xbox Official Forums, I found this interesting bit of information from a user. I do not know if it is true, but it sounds like it is very plausible.


"Its a dash update issue, the version 2.0.7363.0 update was made live on Friday the 16th, and removed shortly after.

If you got the update notification on Friday, your system should still work with the storage device that you used at that time, but NO OTHER DEVICES will work.

This isnt a network issue or cache issue so dont bang your head against the wall trying to figure it out. "


Here is another quote: "Yes, this means somehow the flash in your Console was updated to 2.0.7363.0, but not your storage device.

Every time you try to connect to live, you will be prompted to download an update that has been removed from live.

Until MS releases a fix, you wont be able to connect."


Interesting. If anyone wants to look at the thread, you can find it here:

Holy awesome! Microsoft just recently put the 2.0.7363.0 update back on their servers. I was now able to successfuly update my console.

I can now connect to Xbox Live!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is glorious!

So I just got an Xbox Arcade yesterday and ordered the 20gb refurbished HD from Microsoft. I haven't received anything beyond a confirmation. I was wondering how long these tend to take to arrive? A week, 2? What am I look at here? =D

Thanks as always for the response!

That is kind of hard to get past MS as they make it very hard to do that. The lag usually only occurs when loading the different screens and not once the screen is already there with all the text where you would see the purchase buttons.

So I have seen people mention lag and what not, but for it seems to hang for at least 20-30 seconds. If I do normal things like check out my friends list, compare games, just flip through the marketplace, or even just hit the guide button while playing a game, the system seems to "lock up" for a good amount of time. I sit there and then it works fine.

Is this normal that it is doing it for so long?

Yea whenever someone sends me a message and I hit the guide button in response there is a long wait which sucks. Going through the marketplace takes forever for me but that's because of my connection.

Sadly that does seem to be the new normal for the NXE.

Yeah the NXE lag is annoying, but to be fair the original dash had it's fair share of hang-ups as well.

I dont have that bad of lag, even when i hit the guide button while playing a game.

I noticed how they removed the option to press the guide button when someone logs in, which would bring up their profile. This is good i think, cos half the time i would want to go to my guide right when someone logs in and id have to close it back up, wait for their pop up to go away and then hit guide again.
