Game Saints Row 2 keeps freezing at certain points in the game

After I reset it this last time, it keeps saying at the main screen open tray, so I open the tray and close it and it just repeats the same thing over and over again.

    When playing Saints Row 2 it keeps freezing on xbox 360. If I stop it and restart it I lose all my achievments so I recommend save often.

    I'm at the point where im recruiting new leutenants for The Row and i can get 2 out 3 recruits but when i'm on the way to get a third recruit it freezes up. and i cant hold the center button to turn of console or controller, and if i open the disc tray the screen stays frozen. I even exchanged it for a new game and the same problem occurs. but i can play for hours with saints row 1, madden, Viking, GTA, and i encounter no problem. So is it the game or the console?

    Yeah I rented SR2 from Family Video yesterday, and it froze on the boat in the beginning right when I got off the dock. I decided to just buy a new copy so I could play it but it still froze at that exact same spot and I don't know why. All my other games work on my xbox though, no problems with anything else.

It seems like a 360 problem, exchange for another one, maybe it could be a disc problem though. If a game is REALLLY damaged it can cause the same problems

Why won't my xbox read the game?

IMO Never Use a cleaning disc for Gaming consoles. Which Xbox 360 do you have? Is it the Older Model or newer one? You can Try Blowing into Your Xbox disc drive. Is your xbox up to date,you can unplug your xbox 360 and from the wall and the Xbox. Wait 25 Mins and Try again.

Get your disk resurfaced, it may be scratched or take it back and get it replaced if that doesnt work it is most likely your consol

My xbox keeps saying unreadable disk when i put in saints row 2

Well the disc driver obviously works on most of your games except saints row 2. Saints row 2 is in mint condition well i have this problem too with my 360 it reads some games and it doesn't read my other ones well theirs a few ways one is by leaving the game inside of the console and shut it down wait like 5 seconds and turn it back on.
Another is to make sure the laser its self doesn't have dust on it.
And when you put in a disc listen to it as it spins if makes any weird scratching noise its probably the laser hitting the disc a lot of 360s disc have been getting scratched recently due to the fact in microsoft's original design of the disc drive the laser keeps on hitting the disc and scratching it so if thats the case you have to replace the disc drive.
If solutions don't help let me know i might be able to help you more.

I took a small coffee straw and put some liquid silicone in it and stuck it through the front disc tray carefully to the small engine in the back. Hold your finger over the back of the straw so that the liquid stays in until you are over the engine top.Then I put in a disc cleaning disc for about 10 sec and then put in saints row 2 and it hasn't said "open tray" for about two weeks and counting.....
