Updating an xbox 360
Updating an xbox 360 - validating xml in net
Upgrading to an Xbox 360 doesn't mean you have to lose out on playing your favorite Xbox games.
Bobi did not think it mattered i was not trying to be a jerk or nothing i just thought when you put something on a CD no matter how you did it you burned it on there so my bad and yes i did use a drag and drop I make a folder on my desktop. Then I use CDBURNERXP to create a CLOSED SESSION CDR. About 1/2 will fail to create the CD.-Here's what I did and the update worked, sort of.
i have triad three times to burn an update CD and all three times failed i have triad putting the zip file on the CD that did not work then i triad putting the unzipped folder on the CD that did not work and finely i tried to put the file itself on the CD and it still don't work can someone who successfully updated their system this way please help me but all help would be apricated I'm going to guess that this will never work unless you're running a hacked DVD-ROM firmware.
Simply because you couldn't put in an exception just for system updates on burned media.
I then burned this folder to DVD and closed the session (opposite of making a multisession disc).
Booted up my XBox 360 put the DVD in, manually powered down the Xbox, then manually powered it back up again.
The Xbox recognized the DVD and proceded to do the update.
Then.....a blue screen displayed saying that the Xbox failed to update, please contact Customer Service. I assume this was ok since the xbox recognized it and proceeded with the update.If they follow what I did, then their Xbox SHOULD recognize the disc. If it's badly encoded (that is, not for XBOX) it won't play on the Xbox.) If it's very badly encoded, it won't play on either.Who knows if their update will complete successfully or not, despite what media its on. I decline to start yet another discussion about video encoding, codecs and such.Trek to Teach is a nonprofit organization that sends fluent English speakers to teach in Nepal near the Himalayas.In addition to teaching, Trek to Teach strengthens local communities by helping schools build infrastructure, paint their classrooms, and find furniture.You do not need a Gold membership to get the free update. Put an original Xbox title into the console, which will begin the process automatically.
