New generation systems certainly show how far the video game industry has come since the days of Pong.

Why, just the last generation was simple enough that you could just ask for one of the three consoles (Nintendo GameCube, Sony's Playstation 2 and Microsoft's Xbox) without any further specification.

With the latest generation, there are several purchase options, which go far beyond an extra controller or videogame. You can now ask for a hard drive with bigger storage capacity, different front skins, type of controllers, internet connectivity, etc.

Unfortunately, this also means that there are more things that can break down with your console. This in turn means that it's more difficult to identify where the problem lies.

In order to help identify the problem, the Xbox 360 has a system that allows for easier identification of problems. This system uses the lights that appear around the start button to tell the technicians where the problem is.

When only 1 of the 4 green lights that are located around the start button flashes red and the screen flashes an error code number, it means that you've got the Xbox 360 1 red light message.

If you get the Xbox 360 1 red light message, it means that the problem is either with the DVD drive, or with the hard drive.

Fortunately, the Xbox 360 1 red light message is not something that you should worry about. In order to identify which of the two drives the Xbox 360 1 red light messages is referring to, just look the code number that the screen displays. DVD drive errors are identified with the codes E64, E65 and E66, whereas hard drive errors are identified with codes E67, E69 and E79.

Once you identify which error the Xbox 360 1 red light message is pointing to, fixing it is really easy. The guide available at Fix-xbox360.info will tell you what to do in each case, as well as what to do in case you get any of the other Xbox 360 lights messages. Check it out.
