Is SSF4 Wrecking My Xbox?


#1

i doubt it but, after i play 1 match or even try to go into training mode… randomly it will say: the storage device has been removed… and then: the disk is scratched.

I think my xbox is just crapping out but im have no one else i can ask about how to fix the problem.

i tried clearing my cache and googling the problem but i cannot find a solution.

any suggestions? has anyone else had this problem with ssf4? or any game in general?


#2

my xbox is a 2 gig or w/e

its the cheapest.


#3

My friend had the same problem.


#4

well ive been told by xbox peeps they think that it could be something in the ssf4 files…

so i deleted arcade editions and the update and that didnt fix shit, so now im re downloading the costumes i deleted and im hoping that will fix the problem.

Pretty sure Software can’t damage hardware. That stuff is thoroughly checked before release. Random messages like that are a sign you just need a new 360 / PS3 if you want a change, Whatever.

People are usually fast on the trigger to blame Updates/Downloads/Software/Aliens for system malfunctions, But it could just be as simple as age.

Try putting it in a cold place for a few hours.

You can also try taking a strong vacuum with a hose to all the vent holes to suck out any dust inside.

Sounds crazy but I’ve fixed broken devices like that.


#7

If you suggested that for a computer I’d smack you. If only because I have had to fix the aftermath when a friend did it to try and clean out the dust.

For an xbox I dunno I’d personally be wary to try that.


#8

well all other games work and it is defiantly not my disk. plus the guy who said it could be the updates or w/e wasn’t really implying it was there fault, more of like maybe something screwed up while i was dling it or something… or hell maybe it was the updates.

the problem did start to happen when i removed the ssf4 costumes… thanx tho, and if i can’t fix it like this ill put it in the freezer.

edit: when i said i talked to xbox peeps, i meant i talked to there support service, so im assuming they have some idea what there talking about.


#9

lol i already tried to use an air duster can thing… that didnt seem to work.


#10

Okay. I *strongly *recommend you do not put your 360 in the Freezer.

I’m talking about open rooms, near a window ect…


#11

lol i was going to google it first of course, i was just told by my friend that he did that and it fixed his xbox…

btw, i downloaded all the files i used to have and its still screwing me… i can’t even put my xbox in a cold area, it wouldn’t reach…

so im lost.


#12

called again, they seem pretty confident that its the game disk… maybe something got corrupted or some nonsense…

imma try the same disk on a diff xbox tomorrow to confirm and help others who may happen to have this messed up glitch happen to them.


#13

Play KOF instead.

I thought I was the only one this has happened to ,scratching disc for no reason that is. I bought a new xbox 360 elite (Jasper edition) specifically to play ssf4 (new disc) on when it came out and within 3 days the disk was scratched up very badly and it hadn’t even been taken out of the console. It never happened to any other disc except ssf4. I was pretty pissed as I couldn’t figure out why it would have done that.

Like other people have stated I don’t think it would be a software, update etc thing. Even if the drive spazzes out its very hard for it to get scratched unless there is some mechanical part which is scratching the disc.
