Look on the game makers website and see if they know of issues with that game.

I have recently bought the latest Xbox 360 console and it has been fine until recently the disc tray decides to open and close randomly for example i'll be playing a game then the disc tray will open and...

First step is to check and make sure that 1.) There is nothing stuck in the tray slot (even something very tiny can cause issues) and 2.) make sure there is nothing lodged in the open/close button.

Keeps saying open tray when game in inserted..when system starts to says either open tray or disc unplayable 2k9 xbox360/live

check around the disk tray for dust and use a vaccum cleaner to clean it, then use a wet cd lens cleaner with cleaning fluid a few time.
This should cure the problem but it might be that your drive is dead

Hi, I have handled alot of the "open tray" errors. There are ways to fix the problem, it entails totally opening your 360 up and taking the DVD drive out and adjusting the laser strength, the problem with that is if you adjust it too high you will burn the laser out. And if you adjust it too low it won't read anything at all. The easiest way I have found to fix the problem is by buying a new laser. They are pretty inexpensive (I just bought one for $10.95 off of e-bay, with a 6 month warranty). And that cures the problem AND you don't have to worry about having it adjusted too high or too low. This fix has worked on 7 x-box 360's that I have repaired so far. And no-one has brought them back yet. The 360 depends on the laser to read if the tray is open or shut, unlike the Playstations which have switches that the tray hits when its open or closed. So, as the laser wears out, it can't read if the tray is open or closed because it can't read the disc.

My XBox 360 freezes

Here are things to try.

1. Try another game and check if it only happens on this game ( MLB 2k9 )

2. Select memory -> Select Y button for device options then press the following sequence on your controller

X,X Left Bumper, Right Bumper, X,X

You will see a message that goes like this " This will perform maintenance on your xbox 360 storage device, would you like to continue? Select Yes

3. Delete your save game. or try to start a new game..

Because this is an indication that the certain point that you are trying to load is already corrupted and its your saved game.

hold the disc by the edges without touching the surface.
clean the disc with soft cloth from center outwards.
do not use any solvent,
examine the disc for any visible damage.

verify wether the xbox clock is set correctly.
