    Quite a lot recently I have had to re-boot my xbox while playing Live, it just keeps crashing. It's mainly on GRIT but last night it happened on TopSpin. I wouldn't care but it was the first game I have won and it was just as the stats were being updated so I was well annoyed:mad:
    Actually the guy didn't seem to take losing too well so maybe he switched his xbox off straight after the game.

    Anyone else having problems online?

    Could be dirty discs mate?....
    Not sure what else to suggest but I'm sure someone intelligent will be along soon with some better suggestions.

    Good luck. :)

    How old is your xbox ?? Is it one of the first ones released as M$ have admitted theres a problem with the Thomson? dvd rom drives in the early machines that struggle to read new games.
    Were you hosting?? if not he could of just quit out and left you high and dry. I had the odd crash on Grit and The original GR would crash alot on the Embassy level. But so far on the new games R6, Jedi, Crimson etc i never had any problems.

    I've had my Xbox crash whilst online about 3-4 times in the last month or so. It makes a loud buzzing noise, the screen goes black with message saying to switch my Xbox off. Could be something to do with the downloads off GRIT??

    Thanks for the replies, I got the xbox for chrimbo last year so not too sure what vintage it is. I don't think it is a problem with the xbox itself anyway since it only crashes while playing live, then again I pretty much only use it on live these days so maybe....:D

    I just wondered if anyone else had problems only while online??

    Cheers,

    Porker.
