How To Hook Up Your X-Box To The Internet?From Other - Electronics Forum:
How to hook up your x-box to the internet? I was thinking on buying an x-box 360 and getting live for it, the thing is I would play it in my basement, where my cable box is. so could I hook the Ethernet cable to the cable box or do I have to run it all the way up a floor to my main computer? If so how would I do that? run it through the floor into my router?
Answer: To go on line for X-Box live, you will have to connect to the Internet. That said, how you connect depends on how you receive your Internet. If you have cable Internet, you would have to connect to the cable modem. If it has only a single LAN jack, you would have to get a switch or hub if you wanted to have the X-Box and your computer hooked up at the same time. Otherwise, you can plug in whichever you want use and leave the other unplugged. If you have a connection over the phone, you should have router. If it has more than one LAN jack, plug the X-box into an open port and you're good. If it has only one port, you would need a switch or hub, just like with a cable modem. As far as connecting the two, there are several possibilities. You can run a CAT line from the X-box to the switch/hub/router, or you can get a network bridge, something like this. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7444492&st=Netgear+XE102+Wall-Plugged+Ethernet+Powerline+Bridge&type=product&id=1125238693680#tabbed-customerreviews You can also go wireless, there are a multitude of ways to do that. Hope this helps.

How Does The Memory System Work On An X-Box?From Video & On line Games Forum:
How does the memory system work on an x-box? Is it like the Nintendo Game cube where you have to buy extra memory cards to save your games, or is there a built-in memory system? I'm referring to the original x-box system, not the x-box 360.
Answer: When you turn on the x-box without a disc in it there will be a few options the one you want to hit is memory it will then let you see all of the games on your x-box and how many saved games there are on it. You can delete some of them if you want more space on your hard disk. It is a built-in memory system.
What Can The Effects Of Small Scratches On A X Box 360 Disc Do To The Game?From Video & On line Games Forum:
What can the effects of small scratches on a x box 360 disc do to the game? I have a x box game (saints row 1) from one of my friends, it has scratches on it, I am not sure whether to buy a new one. So I want to know how the scratches can effect the game play of it. Please help. Thanks.
Answer: It can make it so it freezes up or will not play at ALL try this 1. Clean the disc. Even if a CD isn’t actually scratched or scuffed, dust, oil, and other surface contaminants can prevent it from playing properly. Thus cleaning the disc should always be your first move. * Run warm water over the damaged disc to remove dust. * If there is stubborn dirt or grease on the disc, gently rub it with your finger while you are washing it, and use a gentle detergent or liquid soap (with the water) or rubbing alcohol (in place of water). Any time you rub or wipe a CD, you should do so by starting at or near the center of the disc and rubbing straight outward toward the edge to prevent further scratching. * Shake the water off and let the disc air-dry (do not dry it with a towel or cloth, and don't sun-dry it either). 2. Try to play the disc. Many times a good cleaning is all that is needed. If, however, problems persist after cleaning, try to play the disc in a different CD player. Some players handle scratches better than others; computer CD drives and car stereos tend to be best. 3. Burn a new disc. If you can get the CD to work in one CD player - especially your computer’s - but not in others, try burning a new disc. The CD burner on your computer may be able to read the CD well enough to produce a perfect copy. You may wish to try this even if the CD doesn’t play correctly on the computer. 4. Locate the scratch. Actually repairing the disc will be easier if you can figure out where the offending scratch is. Visually inspect the CD’s playing surface for scratches or scuffs. Scratches that run perpendicular to the CD’s spiral - that is, those that run generally from the center to the rim - may not affect playing at all, and in any case are generally less damaging than those that roughly follow the direction of the spiral. If there are several scratches, but the CD only skips in one or two places, you may be able to approximate the location of the offending scratches based on which track skips. The first track of a CD begins near the center, and the direction of play proceeds outward to the edge. 5. Data Recovery. Many burning programs can be set to continue reading after getting an error (such as not being able to read a section due to a scratch). If the program can't read a section at all, it will fill it with random data. They can also try to read the bad section by reading at a very slow speed multiple times. For windows, Nero does this, Linux has the dd rescue tool. This can often fix damaged Cd's, and is especially effective with audio Cd's (where accuracy isn't as important). Also, this doesn't risk damaging the CD (like the following methods), so it is a good idea to try this before trying the more drastic methods. If they damage the disk, the data recovered by this method can still be used. Note that due to the slow reading, and multiple attempts at trying to read a damaged section, these programs can take a very long time to complete (a windows P disk recovered with this method took about 2 hours). 6. Polish the CD. WARNING: this can damage the disk further! Use only as a last resort, and read the instructions carefully!! Though counter-intuitive, polishing a disc can repair a scratched CD by removing some of the outer plastic coating and thus making existing scratches shallower. A number of common household products can be used to polish the CD, but toothpaste — especially baking soda toothpaste — and Bras so are probably the most tried and true. You can also use a fine-grit polishing compound that's used for cars or hard finishes. * Apply a small amount of toothpaste (must be paste, not gel) or Bras so to a soft, clean, lint-free (old undershirt) cloth: an eyeglass-cleaning cloth works well. * Gently rub the cloth on the scratch or scuff in a radial motion, (start at the center and rub out to the edge, like spokes on a wheel). Do this 10 or 12 times all around the CD. Rubbing in a circular motion can cause small scratches that throw off the laser tracking system in the player. Try to focus your efforts solely on the scratch or scratches you’ve identified (if possible). * Polish in this manner for a couple of minutes, reapplying Bras so or toothpaste to the cloth as necessary. Be careful not to apply much pressure, although you will still be able to feel the cloth gently scratching the CD as it polishes. 7. Remove polishing product from disc. If you used toothpaste, rinse the disc thoroughly with warm water and let dry. Make sure to remove all of the toothpaste and let the disc dry completely before trying to play it. With Bras so, wipe off excess product and let the rest dry. Then, using a clean cloth, gently wipe disc again. 8. Test the disc. If the problem persists, polish again for up to 15 minutes or until the scratch is almost completely buffed out. The surface around the scratch should begin to look shiny with many tiny scratches. If you still don’t notice any difference after polishing for a few minutes, the scratch may be extremely deep, or you may be polishing the wrong scratch.
How Many Ports Does The X-Box 360 Elite Have For Wired Controllers?From Video & On line Games Forum:
How many ports does the X-box 360 Elite have for wired controllers? I'm planning on getting Rock Band Special Edition and an X-box 360 Elite for Christmas. According to reviews the 3 controller "instruments" with the game are all wired. Will these all be able to plug in and play at once on a 360 elite?
Answer: There are two SUB (controller) ports on the front, and one in the back. The one in the back is really there for the Wireless Internet Adapter, but if you don't use that, you can plug in a controller. About Rock Band: The game comes with a sub hub, so you have no need to worry.
Can You Play With Two X-Box Accounts In One House At The Same Time?From Video & On line Games Forum:
Can you play with two x-box accounts in one house at the same time? My brother has an x-box with his account down in the basement. I am planning on getting one in my room with an x-box live account for myself. Will my being on line on my x-box live account conflict with him getting on his? If so how can I fix this? Also, my room is upstairs away from the router and the computers. How do I get connection up there? If you can help me on this issue it would greatly appreciated.
Answer: Two X-box 360's can be connected at the same time provided they have their own live accounts. With yours being away from any hard line network connection you would more than likely need a wireless adapter; provided you have wireless Internet in the house. You will see some performance related issues if both of you are accessing live accounts at the same time but nothing that would keep you from playing unless your Internet is already slow or there are many others accessing the Internet as well. Wireless adapter is an additional 100 bucks.

How Do You Connect Ur X Box 360 To Play Online?From Box Forum:
How do you connect Ur x box 360 to play online? I got the x box just a week ago and I really want to [play on line but dint know what I need and how to connect it. can someone please tell me how .
Answer: In the back of your computer, there should be an Ethernet cable. An Ethernet cable looks a lot like a phone wire accept an Ethernet cable is bigger at the end. This Ethernet cable needs to be hooked into your box. You could run the cable directly to your box but it probably isn't long enough. And if the cable isn't hooked into the back of your computer, you won't have Internet on your computer. You need to purchase a router(cheap ones on eBay) and another Ethernet cable that is long enough to stretch from your computer to you box. Instructions should come with the router to help you set it up. Next, You need to buy an box live subscription. When you buy one, a code should come with it when you sign up to box live. You can find cheap box live subscriptions on eBay.
