View Full Version : Memory Issues

I own 6 games and have saved 2 soundtracks on my XBOX but when I go into the XBOX dashboard it still says I have 50,000+ blocks....... I dont understand I used blocks but it seems that my XBOX isnt keeping track, or does it really have that much space!?!?!?!?! Just joined the forum thing and I love it. Perfect way for XBOX junkies like myself to keep in touch with each other. Anyways post a reply with ur feedback, let me know what ur XBOX is doing.

It has between 34,000 and 34,500 blocks acording to Microsoft

then y does the XBOX dashboard say that there is 50,000+ ....?

Because it doesnt want to have to countdown so it juss says 50,000+ to keep you guessing :-)

That would be cool, if it had a format button. Dont know why,just like to see some n00b keep pressing it to see what it does.

I think having the system list 50,000+ blocks when there are 312,500 blocks actually available is an inside slam poking fun at Sony and Nintendo with their ~2000 block(8mb) and 59 block memory cards.

They figure that the average user will probably never make that 50,000+ figure drop while PS2 and GC users will always be calculating how much space they have left on their memory cards.

Why else such an ambiguous number that is much lower than the actual number?
