Well, It finally happened. I had my first DDE tonight with ESPN NFL2k4 tonight......2 times in a row it happened.

You guys think I can use this problem as a way to use my 2 year warranty with Bestbuy? I really wouldn't mind keeping this if I knew this wouldn't become a constant problem. Otherwise, I'd like to just trade it in for another one while my warranty is still good.

Hell yeah use that warranty. At the very least they will clean out your xbox and tweak your dvd drive. If you are lucky the drive is shot and they will have to replace it for you with a new one.

BTW, mods have been instructed to instant-delete sigs that aren't within the sig limits. If your sig disappeared then chances are it was too tall or too wide... or possibly too massive.

edit: i could have sworn that was deleted too.


Okay, next weekend if I continue to get DDE's I'll take it up there and see if I can get a new one.

Get a Discwasher Brand DVD/CD lens cleaner a Wet/dry combo and your DDE's will go away , thats all they are going to do when you take it in ,

well, i messed around today and tried all my games......all 5 of them WUWU!

and it seems that the problem is with ESPN.

it was giving me problems for about 3 minutes today......ESPN i mean and then it finally worked.......once it starts up it plays great......Tomorrow I am going to take this copy back and exchange it for another.

That's what I would do..good call. It must be the game, not your XBox. If you exchanged your XBox, you would likely not keep all of your game saves, which would suck.

i never thought about my gamesaves....in the end though, 180bucks always wins over saving the saved games.

hopefully when i exchange the game tomorrow it will be fixed.
