    I followed the guide for the 360 250hd hack and now when i try to play a game it goes to a black screen then restarts the console. Cant figure anything out on my own, does anyone have any ideas whats going on or how to fix it? thanks

    1.try a different game
    2.if problem still exists go to system>memory>y>format>enter serial number>yes THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING ON THE DRIVE
    edit-try the game without the hard drive attached also
    3.if your still having issues you may have to undo the drive and reflash it.
    if you do this make sure to do this
    -undo the drive with the undo option
    -restart the computer when done and to make sure its a WD HDD go in the bios to see the hard drive manufacturer or in hddhackr(dont reflash yet)
    -this is optional but i think its better>format in windows(disk management for vista/7) or using gparted
    -move or rename your old undo.bin to undo.old.bin
    -use hddhackr again(reflash) and it will create a new undo.bin
    -connect to xbox360 and format in memory section
    -optional>connect to computer and transfer the partition 2
    -get the latest console update and try the game again it should work
