My 360 seems to be lagging like crazy. For example, when I play Fallout 3, the game lags like crazy. One second it will play normally, then the next it will take 5 seconds to work slightly, and it lags for a few seconds, then works well for a second or two, and repeats. I also hear a noise where it seems like the game is being read, then stops being read, then starts again, and stops, like it may be dying. Also, it seems to take longer to get mandatory updates and sometimes freezes while trying, and games have froze, especially when I press the guide button in the middle of the controller.

Re: Do I have a disc reading issue?
Try to clea the Disk that you are using then try also to insert other disk that is working to check if the problem is the disk itself. Only then if the result is the same then the problem would be either the Player hardware or the Support software maybe its corructed or not compatible to the disk you want to insert. Then if the hardware has a problem contact the PS3 repairshop in your place. But if the support software has the problem then you can update it or reinstall your software support in your PS3.
Hope it helps your problem.

Try going to your memory on your xbox highlight the hard drive and Press Y on the hard drive symbol and then press the following: X,X,Left Bumper, Right
Bumper, X,X. then select yes this will clear any game updates they will have to be re-updated
Two possible reasons this could be happening.
1. Bad or going bad laser 2. firmware needs updated.
solution for: 1. replace the laser or dust it out. Don't use a air duster as this might sitr up or lodge new dust in the eye. The best way to dust the laser is to open the dvd drive and use a very soft brush. Idealy a keyboard duster. Or once you have the drive open then you can use air.
2. go to the system settings option on the dashboard and update the firmware.
A couple things come to mind. If the lens is dirty, then there will certainly be issues with load times, or load failure. Check your game discs for scratches and scuffs. If a disc has a scratch or too many scuffs on it, it will make it difficult for the laser to read. Clean your discs, and clean your ps2 lens with a basic ps2 laser cleaning kit. You should be able to find them anywhere. I don't recommend cleaning the lens without a kit if you are not familiar with the internals of a PS2 or cleaning electronic components. If after cleaning your disc and lens it still gives you issues, there is an angle adjustment gear in the ps2, but we'll cross that bridge only if the cleaning doesn't work.
The lag you're experiencing most likely isn't the result of any physical abnormality, but rather you're network. How many people in your household share the same network? The more people on a network, the slower it will run. (I've actually experience this first hand) You might have too much people sharing your network for your game to run smoothly. Try to go on hours that everyone is not on. As for the repeated starts and stops, during game play, don't stress that. Its normal.
Fallout 3 freezing is an unfortunately common problem. A lot of people have reported that clearing the game cache on your 360 will fix it, so that's what I would suggest you try first.
To do this:
start up your 360, then take out the Fallout 3 game disc.
Hold down the A button on the Player 1 controller
Put Fallout 3 in your 360, then load the game
If this doesn't fix it, the next thing you could try is to clear the system cache. This will clear the entire cache for your 360, including the automatic updates (though downloaded content, save files, and user dats will be untouched).
To do this:
Navigate to System > Memory
Highlight the hard disk in the list and press Y
Press X, X, LB, RB, X, X
If done right, you should see a message asking, "perform system maintenance?" Proceed with this, and it will clear all the cache data out and revert Fallout 3 back to version 1.0 (it should ask you to update once you load the game)
Hope this helps - I've had my share of frustration with Fallout 3 glitches.
thats realy bad lag or your xbox cant keep up with your disc which means your xbox eye that reads the disc is dirty or failing i have the same problem but my xbox stope reading my discs best thing to do is get a can of air and blow it in to the xbox tray where u put your games and it should help if not i did my best
