Last night I brought my hardrive over to my buddies house and we were getting some of the achievements that needs more than 2 people for Rock Band 2. So this morning I put my hard drive in and start playin a song and my Xbox shut off and it has 2 flashing red lights! Has this happened to anybody?

Check the cords, I got this once and it was just because my power cord wasn't in all the way.

I got this from: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/907533?sd=xbox

The two left quadrants of the Ring of Light flash red on the front of your Xbox 360 console.

This problem may occur when the Xbox console is too hot or is overheating. The flashing lights mean that the internal temperature of your Xbox 360 console has exceeded acceptable temperature limits.

1.Let your Xbox 360 console cool. You may have to wait several hours for your Xbox 360 console to cool enough. Don't turn on your Xbox 360 console when the console is hot.2.Verify that your Xbox 360 console has enough ventilation and that the fans are operating. For more information about ventilation, see the "More Information" section.3.If the two lights continue to flash red after you try steps 1 and 2, contact Xbox Customer Support. For more information about how to contact Xbox Customer Support, please visit the Xbox Support (http://www.xbox.com/support/) (http://www.xbox.com/support/) Web site.
