in december of 2010 i bought an xbox slim with a 250 GB hard drive. everything worked fine until about may when it started freezing and i would ocasonaly get the dashboard error. I did all the troubleshooting techniques to keep it running until august when i sent it back for repairs. I got a differnt console then the one i sent back. it came almost two weeks ago. with in one week it was freezing again. so i called custormer support and they now have my hard drive which i sent back to them on friday... i have been playing using a flash drive... it's now freezing with out the hard drive in. i am very frustrated at this point. i have been a loyal xbox customer for nearly 5 years now. i spend a lot of money on my xbox and games....i don;t have enough money to keep buying xboxs this being the 3rd i have actually bought... am i alone in this issue with the slim? why am i having the same issue with this supposidly fixec xbox as i was with the one i sent back to them? did they send me back a broken xbox?
