I have the same problem with my genesis. Most likely it freezes if you make the cartridge move any, which is hard to avoid on these older consoles. Same goes for any cartridge based console i.e. NES,SNES,N64 sega
Theres a cheap way to keep the cartridge from moving though, heres what i do; As your inserting the game, wedge something like a quarter, or a small piece of cardboard with the game. It keeps the game from moving, and thus keeping it from freezing.
hope this works for you!!

SOURCE: My PS3 plays PS2 games fine, but freezes up when

The issue is the Blu-Ray diode. If one disc stops working 100% of the time but the other two types still work (DVD and CD) then the blu-ray diode died. The good news is that a handy person can fix it for about $45. Just do your research and watch a few youtube videos on replacing the laser and opening the case to make sure you are comfortable. I just did it and it was fine. You can buy the laser assembly on eBay, just make sure you go local and get a warranty. Don't buy overseas.

SOURCE: certain game causes system to freeze.

Since it's a problem with only one game, i guess it's a problem with the dvd media, try to get another copy of the game and see if the problem continues...

You could also try to clear XBOX 360's cache:

  1. Go to the system blade and then select memory.
  2. Press Y on the HD symbol and then press X,X,Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X. Once you do this a messsage will appear saying: Do you want to perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage devices?
Performing this function will also clear any software updates.

SOURCE: ps3 keeps freezing, with all games.

Hi

This is either a problem with misalignment and either the laser or the drive itself is at fault.

It might be worth disassembling the unit again - clean the laser with a Q-tip and isopropyl alcohol then reinstall the drive being sure that you have carefully followed the correct procedure.

See this link which is very useful to ensure you have done everything right.

In relation to the drive check this video to ensure the correct installation procedure has been followed.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Your PS3 may not be freezing entirely. Look in the top right hand corner of the screen, if the loading sphere is there you've nothing to worry about, and I would reccomend just waiting it out (it unfreezes). If it is not there it is a legitimate freeze and would reccomend sending it off and/or updating the system firmware.

Freezing


for freezing problems... try to move your system away from areas that are often hot, blocking the vents, or blocking air movement. the main culprit for freezing issues is over heating. if your system becomes too hot it will flash green and red where your power button is. so if your having trouble with that problem follow those steps.
