The disc basically acts as a key to start the engine (GAME) otherwise you could just go rent or borrow games from friends and not pay for them, however the game still plays %100 from hard drive. Also if you take the key out, the engine will turn off.

I have a xbox 360 slim and i want to play a game without the disk i have an external hard drive and a usb is there a way to do this and if so can i play online?

yes there is a way to do this but no you cannot play online. Xbox live has a verification system and can detect modified xbox systems. Once a Xbox is detected as modified, it is banned from xbox live and would require a clean code to get back on after the system is no longer modified.

if you are in the united states, the practice to modchipping is illegal and the purchase of such items are a felony.

I purchase a new game today from Best Buy called blob2 and it keep saying unable to read disc.

try other games, if they have the same error message, than that means your CD drive is broken, if not, than it's probably your copy of the game, maybe the game got damaged during shipping, I recommend returning the game to GameStop and get about 95% of your money back and get a new game, or ask a friend to barrow their copy.

Game freezes up on 360xbox

If your game is freezing, it is most likely due to your game being scratched or otherwise damaged. Sometimes, a game can become damaged without you even realizing it. There are two ways to fix this.

1) (Obviously) Buy a new game.

If you don't want to go through the hassle, and would rather just get a fresh copy, go do it. Also, if your hard drive is relatively small or nearly full, I would recommend this.

2) Install the game to your hard drive.
The Xbox 360 has a feature that allows you to install a game to your hard drive. By doing this, the Xbox will run everything from your hard drive, which will make a scratched game no problem. You still need to have the game in the Xbox for it to start, however (anti-piracy measure). Installing is easy. Go to the dashboard, and scroll to where you would normally start the game from. But instead of pressing A to play the game, press Y on it and you should have the option to install it.

Note 1: If you can't install the game fully because it is so badly damaged, borrowing a friends or renting a copy and installing that one will work fine also. As long as you can start the game, you will be fine and freeze-ups will go away.

Note 2: If you have installed the game and it's still freezing, the problem is your hard drive. Some hard drives don't play well with some games, for an odd reason. To test this, try saving and loading the game from a USB flash drive. If it doesn't freeze, just continue to play on the flash drive. You can transfer all of data for the game onto your flash drive from the memory options in system settings.
