Xbox360 freezes up in the same spot every time on a certian game
Well, I was gonna get on Fable 2, I chose continue story, and it brought up the loading screen. While loading it froze up, and my xbox360 went un-responsive, I couldn't bring up my dash board, if I took out the disk it still wouldn't bring up the dash board, even if I put another game in, I couldn't even turn off my xbox 360 with my controller, so I turned it off and back on, and it froze and did the exact same thing, I repeated turning it off and on (and it kept freezing in that spot) and finally I put in Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare, and got on Multiplayer Xbox Live, and it worked fine. So I'm not sure what the problem is, so if someone could please inform me of a solution, or atleast whats wrong and if it can be fixed, I would greatly appreciate it, thanks for reading!

I have this problem too. I have my xbox360 connect to an older rear projections Mitsubishi TV running 1080i resolution. The only thing I could do to get around this was reduce the xbox360 resolution to 480p. It looks ugly, but you can see the text. Anyone have a better solution?
well your dvd rom is going bad i own 7 of them and 5 of them are broke you can buy new dvd roms for them but you have to either flash them or just change the boards in the dvd roms because yours is married to your 360
Do you have the game installed? I've had similar problems with other games(Mass Effect being the most recent) and by reinstalling it the problem went away and i was able to progress past the load screen and the area i was stuck in.
fable too wont work for me and i dont know why about that . try taking your xbox apart by looking it up at www.youtube.com it will bring you through the steps and it should be working. if not buy a new xbox wo hard drive.
Since your Xbox is brand new, you can just install Fable 2 to the hard disk of your xbox 360. I didn't have this problem with Fable 2 - but that's maybe because I installed it to the HD from the start. Fallout 3 did freeze on me, but installing it to the HD fixed the issue. Don't get any ideas though, you still need to insert the disk if you want to play ;-)
This is how you do it:
Load the disk into your Xbox 360 console and go to your Xbox 360 console
Scroll down to My Xbox
Scroll across to Game Library and hit the A button
This should put you on the Recent Games window and your game should be highlighted, so you should just need to hit the A button. Otherwise, scroll to the Recent Games window and choose the game.
On the game screen, choose Install to Hard Drive. This process should take a few minutes, but once it is complete, you'll be able to enjoy improved performance.
You'll also note that the game screen contains all kinds of great information about the game such as the achievements unlocked and featured downloads available for the game.
This acutally happened to a few of my friends that bought the game. It is something in the disk itself , you can call the 1800 number on the instruction book of the game and debate it with them in the end you need a new disk.
okay friend make sure your clock on your 360 is running correctly this is what tells the game what real time is also make sure that your game is left in the disk tray when not playn cause its not gonna just magically appering the game ifits not being updated ill look further kk
i had a little problem like that but what i did was installed the game onto the hardrive and i have never had it crash once after works nicely. if u have got a hard drive with yours install it inot the hard drive and it will work as long as u have 6.7 gb free space :)
OK so i posted my problem yesterday 25/03/09 about fable 2 freezing... I didn't take the advice from xbox i decided to download the game onto my hardrive and it seems to be working fine now I have played for a few hours with no problems just made sure that i go into the game library and click on the fable 2 game and then take the oiption play from hardrive hope this helps others that are having trouble i'll keep you all updateds if i incure any other problems with it... good luck and happy gaming everyone
