My hard drive started malfuntioning after a microsoft software update. All my saved games were lost. After redownloading 5 years worth of stuff my console started freezing and not starting most of the time. The console works perfectly when the hard drive is removed. So its clearly a hardware issue and im nine days past the warranty. Im really pissed at microsoft products right now. Ive sent in two consoles to get fixed in the past. I own four xbox 360s. Ive just lost thousands hours of gameplay and my 4 year old sons profile due to a faulty product in combination with an update, and microsofts solution is for me to shell out another $130 for another hard drive. Awesome. This is how a loyal xbox owner and xbox live subscriber of 5 years is treated? Why should microsoft get anymore of my money after this? 12-16 update. Now my console isn't reading games discs or dvds. So hey thanks a lot Microsoft! My 3rd console that I have to ship away just in time for the holiday season. Funny how everything was fine with my machine until I downloaded a MICROSOFT update and it seems like many other people on here are having similar problems. I'll b surprised if this post isn't filtered out and deleted... again. Happy holidays Microsoft and it's moderators!
