Hey, so I recently switched from using USB sticks to using the actual Xbox 360 hdd to store custom songs. I went a little crazy and ended up getting something around 75GB of custom songs from the internet. I split them into 20 different pack using the C3 Con Tool and loaded them into Party Buffalo to avoid the 256 bug.

Here's where the problem starts: The loading bar for dlc will show up upon game start, and right when it finished, the entire game will freeze. I've been able to get about 5 of the packs working at once, but only 5 specifically, I tried using a different 5 packs and still got the freeze. I've tried loading the packs individually by starting the game, and then adding a new one over and over, but hitting the 6th pack makes me freeze.

This isn't the 3000 song limit, as I got that the first time I loaded all the songs right before I froze. I'm freezing at somewhere around 1700 songs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated to figure out what's wrong.

The game actually freezing is caused by a broken DTA file somewhere.
This will be tedious, but how I would go about it:
- delete song cache
- add pack 1, does it freeze? the problem is in that pack. if it doesn't freeze AND all the songs in the pack are now visible in the setlist, then delete song cache, add pack 2 (while keeping pack 1), and try again. and repeat until you know which pack is the one causing the problem.

Then throw that pack at Quick Pack Editor in C3 CON Tools. You should notice something being off in the song entries (missing information, or more/less entries than expected, etc).

It's not going to be easy to resolve, unless you get lucky and find the problem file quickly.

If you happened to download Scar Symmetry The Missing Co-ordinates and Metallica Enter Sandman from the Christmas pack all located on the very old RB3 custom google doc spreadsheet; those songs will crash your console.

If this was my problem (I had The Missing Co-ordinates and I crashed every time) then you just saved my life.
