have you tried that?

I seriously cant believe it happens right before AC is being released. This is terrible. And yeah I have tried that. Thanks though. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Well for one if you did get a new hard drive with your system all you have to do is a gamertag recovery through the system and you will have your profile, gamerscore and all that back, then with that you can re-download anything you have in the past ala your arcade games and what not. So all you would lose would be saved games.

Just do what I did, send it back!

I'm from the UK, called the support centre free of charge in US, they sent me an e-mail with a packaging code so I could send it free of charge, sent it, they fixed it and sent me it back within a week, so you should have it back just before the AC launch

Hope I helped!
