I tune my guitar to Drop C, then the C turns to E and the other 5 strings go higher also, it never tunes right, please helpl me, i'm really pissed and i just want to play something....

Well first of all, you don't have an Edge Pro if you have a 370Dx, it would be an Edge III. Secondly, you need to adjust the springs in the back of the guitar to counter the tension of the strings properly. You need to realize that with a floating trem guitar you need to choose one tuning and set it up for that tuning. If you wish to change tunings you need to reset everything. Not a hard process but a bit time consuming, one of the downsides of a floating trem guitar. Go here for a tutorial on setting the trem up properly http://www.ibanezrules.com/tech/setup/tuning.htm

Think about it: you're tuning down, so the strings are putting less tension on the bridge, which is why your C is being pulled up to an E. So, you need to loosen those springs on the back. Please tell me you read the link I sent.
