It is most,likely an overheating problem. Try putting your 360 in a more ventilated area, or buy an intercooler or cooling station.
I reccomend you fix this fast, since overheating can lead to the RRoD

If this does not work, you can always visit www.xbox.com and chat live with a 24 hour support specialist.

Happy gaming and good luck.

It sounds like its definitely something wrong with the system. There must be something about this game that the system is having trouble reading correctly. I don't see there being much of a fix for this unless maybe you brought it in to a local game shop and had let look at it.

Xbox works fine but wont show up on the tv, sound is coming out but no video.


For, first time u should the following
play a movie using the Media Player for Xbox 360, a Windows firewall warning will appear
Note: This is due to the Xbox 360 playing the movies over the network.
Simply click the "Unblock" button on the window that appears (see below) and the
movie will play fine, i think so. You only have to cancel this warning once.

My xbox won't read games when i put in a game the xbox turns on and works fine but wont read the games or movies i put in???


I had this problem on my first Xbox. In my case it was caused by the disk reader burning out. Call Xbox customer support, you should be able to send it in for a replacement.

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.
