This is usually because some games are on DVD media and some are on CD media. CD's are single layer media while DVD's are multi layer media. This means it is easier to read a CD than it is to read a DVD. The concept of a DVD is to have several semi transparent layers of data. It is sort of like taking a few CD's stacking them together and smooshing them into a single disc. To read the 2-4 layers of data you must ignore the previous layers and pay attention to ones deeper in the disc. DVD drive might be going out 360 dvd drives do go out more then they should.

Hi,

I had the same problem with my Xbox, and the answer wasn't good. This is a hardware issue cause by the video coolor not working and the game overheating, making the video freeze totally.

Call 1-800-4MYXBOX, and have your console serial number ready. They might be able to walk you through some basic troubleshooting, but this will most likely end in you needing to send the system in for a repair.

When i play games i can play for about 4secs and then it freezes


It may freeze because your game Cd could be scratched or bad. Or maybe its not your game CD at all maybe it is your console. What you can try doing is rubbing alcohol on the game CD and see if that works. If not, try blowing into the area where you put the CD into.

Good Luck!

Try playing your game without Xbox live at first. If it doesn't freeze up, then you have an internet connection problem. Try reconnecting wires. If it does freeze up without Xbox live, it may just be the game.
