Wondering if anyone has had a problem like this with their 360.  I have a new 360, using it with an MU (hard drive is coming this week).  I have been playing Tomb Raider Legend.  About half the time, when I am done playing and try to exit to the dashboard, the game doesn't go to the dashboard, but instead goes back to the title screen and all sound is gone from the game.  I can continue playing the game if I want, but there will be no sound at all.  If I try again to go to the dashboard, I am taken again back to the title screen.  My only way to turn off the machine is to press power.

This happened again recently, and when I turned the machine on the next time all 3 of my saves were corrupted and couldn't be played.  I was on mission 8 of 8 and I had to start the game over again (luckily I liked the game a lot and was willing to do so).

I do have some other games, but I haven't started them and tried to exit to the dashboard from in game.

Has anyone seen anything like this?

Hmm... that's a new one on me.  I've never just used a MU though.

I didn't have any problems with live when I played... it seems to be very hit or miss at the moment.

I played a little Virtua Fighter 5 earlier around 7pm didn't have any problems.

This problem is actually completely separate from live - my console isn't even online at the moment.

The problem you're describing sounds like its  possibly caused by a corrupted  MU. The reason I suspect the MU is that it's likely read or written to 1 last time when you exit to the X360 dashboard. Tomb Raider Legend might have a poorly implemented error routine that results in you being dumped back to the title screen due to an MU read/write error. It will be interesting to see if this still occurs once you get a harddrive.

Hopefully that's it since I probably won't use the MU once I get my hard drive.  I'll see if there's anything out there about corrupt MUs.

You could always try formatting it. Do you know someone else who has a HDD they could plug in and copy your saves?
