Our brand new XBOX 360 system was running great with Fable II It just started Freezing while changing scenes. We had to restart the system most of the time. The problem may have started when my daughter started Fable I, I am not certain. I got a replacement disk with no improvement. We updated the dashboard - no change. I deleated all of the games and started fresh It started freezing 10 minutes in.
The cables are fine. The unit is cool with unobstructed airflow. I am at the point of taking it back... help!

Re: Brand new 360 60 gig is hanging up in Fable II
I got this for my son for christmas along with a xbox 360 60gig. Before he could play the game, it said that the system needed to be updated in order to play fable II. Have you tried updating the system?

Either your savegame got deleted or corrupted. If it still shows up in the main menu, I would suggest copying it to a flash drive and trying to start a new game. If you can make a new game then your savegame is corrupt and you cannot use it anymore. If it will not allow you to make a new save then chances are your Fable 2 disk has been scratched and can no longer be used.
Well if it diesn't save to your xbox then try it in another xbox, and if that fails, it may be that the game was made with an internal bug. it may be annoying, but buying another one might be an option. Do any other games save to your X-Box?
This will surely lead to the red ring of death people are talking about, i got that the other day, sent my xbox to microsoft and they fixed it for me for free, But you cant have your warranty sticker broken or they wont touch it. Microsoft will fix it for free since it is a problem for nearly all the xbox 360 they made.
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.
I had that exact same problem. I'd play for a few minutes, and then the game would freeze. The only thing I could do to have an effect once this happened, was to hit the power button on the console.
I installed the game onto the HDD, and haven't have a single problem since. I have yet to install the upgrade, as I'd read on a couple different sites that this was causing some problems as well.
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
