    I was playing at around midnight last night, then woke up about 20 minutes ago and downloaded the update, and now my xbox won't read any discs… I don't know if this is related to the update, but it was working fine last night, on two different games.

    It is i'm sure, over a year ago when the latest dashboard was released it created a disk read error for ff 11. If the game was not shut down. just turned off, it would say disk is unreadable^^

    The update wont even download for me, i leave it on for a few hours to download and then it just says 'error: cant complete the download'. Now I cant even go online.

    i have had the same problem as Peter with my discs not reading. Only one disc works for me now. Another problem that i have had with the update is my dashboard not working and my friends list, it doesn't show in till time 5 minutes later displaying the avatars.

    The sad reality is that most folks believe they KNOW much more than they really do. In most places of lifestyle, it is possible to get by with that pondering all correct, but in terms of dealing together with your claim, you had far better flip to a person who Truly DOES KNOW what they’re speaking about.
