Hey if they send you a new one what happens to your hard drive? Because I would rather get mine fixed then a new one if I had to lose my hard drive.

You keep the HDD and just ship off the system.

MS sent me a refurbished 360 for mine that was having freezing and choppy graphics issues. This was before they made the updates to the hardware design so I went ahead and cut a couple holes in the case to help keep it cool.

Going to mount fans on those holes, I'll have one fan sucking air in behind the DVD-Rom and one blowing it out in front of the cpu.

I remember STICK going through this shit with his X-Box 360 before, seemed to take an eternity for the problem to be solved.

I've experienced the RRoD twice already. Fortunately, my g/f was able to get me a new one each time. All we did was buy a new one, use a hairdryer to open it up, switch the hard drives, and put the broken 360 back in the box and re-seal it. She even switched the controllers so I got a second wireless controller for free. Then we took the 360 back and returned it. The store doesn't lose any money. She told me they send back defective merchandise and MS foots the bill. So, it's a win-win. I'm glad my g/f works in retail. She knows all the tricks of the trade.

Um yea........ what store is this? Nowadays when you but the system they scan the Serial Number and it goes right on the reciept. So when you return it they wont take it back it has two different serial numbers. If they did return it Microsoft does not flip the bill. They returned an old machine that is out of warranty and the store loses out. They use it as a tax write off sure but they still lose out. The only way around this is to return and say you got it as a gift and you get store credit. The only store that does this for you is Wal Mart and that was a 6 years ago when I did this scam with the PS2. And even then the Serial Number went on the reciept. Target wont return shit without a reciept and neither will best buy and circuit city. Not to mention Gamestop, babages or Software etc. So unless your girfriend knows somebody, this scam that you say you did doesnt work anymore. Ive done a few times back in the day with Ps2 and DreamCast.........the first Dreamcasts had a simuliar problem that the 360s had.

Bottom line is if you dont want to be stuck shipping your 360 in if you get the 3 RLOD.......then buy it at best buy or gamestop and get the two year replacement guarantee on it for like 40 bucks exxtra just in case.

Yeah I got the 3 year warranty from best buy on my 360 and when I called best buy up they said for the first year you still have to ship it off to Microsoft.

Luckily I haven't had the Red rings problem. My problem is that whenever I put a game in my 360 tells me to put it in an Xbox 360 if I wanna play it I can still play it but sometimes it takes 5-10 minutes of opening and closing the tray.

I bought a PS3 from Best Buy yesterday and they didn't scan the unit. Then just checked me out like regular. And the 2 year replacement plan in $80. But it's sure as hell worth it for you XBOX 360 owners.
