Well, I got a bunch of movies at CC with the BOGO but none of them work! Knocked Up seems to have trashed my 360 drive so now it freezes during any HD movie. Any ideas? Should I try to delete all the cookies? When I tried to play knocked up, it downloaded a cookie for it and all hell broke loose after that. Now my non-combo movies crap out. I need to save up a bit of money for a REAL HDDVD player........... microsoft products are so unreliable

It seems that on any of the web enabled disc it wants to download a cookie and the add on takes a LOOOOOONG time to do this simple task. I thought mine had locked up the first time I put Heroes disc 2 in and I rebooted my xbox and deleted the cookies and that helped. When I went to watch Knocked Up it took the add on circa 7 minutes to download the dang cookie and start playing. I got impatient with Evan Almighty and pushed the power button on the 360, waited a minute and powered it up and Evan Started in about 2 minutes after that. I have never tried watching any of the web enabled discs on tha A1.

Hmm never had one problem with mine. I would try deleting the cookies and see if that works.

The 360 HD DVD drive never acted up for me and I've played knocked up in it.


Perhaps you should go to the system blade and go to system items and see if you can delete the patches applied to the HD DVD drive; or delete all of the cookies and try. They are cookies; it's not like they really matter.

yea, transformers took about 10 minutes to download that stupid cookie, really pissed me off, because there was a cancel button but I couldnt select it without freezing the player.

I deleted the cookies and Transformers worked up until the chopper scene. It froze up and the light on the drive itself shut off. Would it be best to delete everything off the drive and NOT play a movie while it's connected to the internet? I can't believe that a non-combo movie doesn't work.

I popped in the disc at 12:30a this morning, it downloaded the cookie in about 2 minutes. I then proceeded to download the H.U.D. and that took about 3 minutes then when I went to play the movie with the feature the screen went black for about 10 seconds and then everything played normally.


Seems problems with the 360 add-on are hit and miss. I've yet to have any "serious" (read: extremely long load times or failing discs) problems with mine, I expected to have a delay in playing the disc which is why i loaded it last night to make sure everything worked for the viewing party I'm having this evening.


I'm hoping there is an update in the Fall Update that's coming soon that tightens up the add-on functionality, but overall I'm impressed with this player at a cost of $130 (Best-Buy pricing mistake).

Is this only happening to users that have the 360 connected to the internet? I've yet to have a problem, but I do not have my 360 hooked up to the web, either. I'm wondering because I have Transformers at home (from Netflix), and am starting to worry if it will play properly on my add-on. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

It didn't work. I deleted eveything, didn't download any cookies for transformers and it'll play for about 10 minutes then freeze. It doesn't matter if I skip chapters. Once it plays for 10 minutes, it craps out. worthless p.o.s.

mine isn't working on or off the net. Hopefully you don't have any problems.

Try going to your System blade and removing the HD-DVD player, restart your 360, put the movie into the HD-DVD player and it should ask to update. Do so and hopefully that will work. Last thing you can try is exchanging it for a different copy.

Never had a single problem with my 360 Addon.

Try this. On the Dashboard, go to the system blade, go to MEMORY then you'll see the HD-DVD drive, go in there and delete everything.

Restart system, and try again.


I popped in Disc 1 at 11:21pm and took several minutes to clear the Loading Update screen, after that everything was flawless.


Using old ass Add-on Drive and a 360 Elite.

Did you enable network access? Press Display on the remote (or press a button on the controller) go to ADVANCED and one of the icons is the NETWORK icon, make sure it's enabled.

Also make it accept all cookies. Eject and re-insert disc and check it out.


Also do you have xbox live? either gold or silver. as long as your 360 can go to the marketplace and download game demos and what not, it should work

What do you mean removing your hDdvd player? Do you just mean deleting eveything?

Oh man, this isn't sounding good. I am going to buy Transformers on lunch here in a few and am getting a little nervous about the addon for the 360.


Other than deleting your HD-DVD player from the System blade or trying a new copy, I am not sure what you can do. Maybe this problem is critical enough that MS will send out an update soon.

Just remember, more often than not only the negative is reported so don't be afraid to pick it up just because of some failing, that doesn't mean they all are.


From what I've seen though, reinstalling the HD player, clearing the memory, and the extreme of boiling the discs seem to remedy most problems before going to the store to replace the discs.
